My ?? is.... for the tail lights, what do u have to do to the circuit board to make leds work?? I mean are they plug n play or do u have to use resistors?? (3075 bulbs). And for the front on the pigtails are those plug n play?? Thanks for any thoughts

The bulbs are plug and play in the sockets themselves. For turn signals, you need 'load resistors' That's the search term you should use to do your research. It's been discussed in a few threads so far. :coffee:

For the turn signals ur talking about the hyper flash that happens when going to leds right?? If so I don't mind having them blink like that. So all I hafta to do is plug the new tail light leds in the board and that's it??

:tequila: Are you at happy hour right now? :Lager Louts: :laugh:

Yes, the load resistors are for the hyperflash issue. It's still under conversation/research, but if you are only putting LEDs in the front, or rear turn signals, the LED flasher relay would take care of that, but there seem to be issues with it, if you put LEDs in front and back. But yes, the bulbs plug right in, just like stock ones do

For front or rear only change:

If you are retaining your stock housings and only replacing the incandescent turn signal bulbs with LED, use a pair of 6ohm 50w load resistors to prevent hyperflash.

For front and rear change, use a pair 3ohm 50w load resistor instead
