LED Brake/Tail-Lights

I just installed my new LED Brake/Tail-Light bulbs. These were recommended by another Forum member, but I don't remember who. Man, these things are BRIGHT! They don't draw as much power as the stockers and, of course, don't generate anywhere as much heat. So I shouldn't have to worry anymore about melting my Tail-light lens's or plastic-surrounds, and, being LED's, they should last many thousands of miles and hours. Not cheap, but now I have something less to worry about! Still planning to change my head-lights over to the XP LED's.

Cheers

OK, here goes; they're from Super Bright LED's, Inc. Model #3157-R45-T-CK: 3157 Red SRCK. DON'T GET THE WHITE ONES, or you'll lose a bunch of brightness.

Sorry, haven't invested the time and effort to figure-out the picture uploading thing yet; probably won't.........just imagine your stock tail-lights, only 3 times as bright!

oooh, replaced your super duty, hmmmm, maybe its time to upgrade my bulbs in the dodge. Do you have to install resistors in-line when you dropped LEDs into your SD?

Re: LED Brake/Tail-Lights

Thanks for the specs. I bought some LED lights a while back before it was mentioned that the CK's would work without changing the wiring. So I have been stuck contemplating what to do. Really don't want to order more $25 ea lights but?? Probably more options for the standard wiring if you go the relay route. Keep going back and forth.

Ya, since they have their own internal resisters and ballasts, I assume they would be plug-and-play in ANY 12V standard socket that has #3157 bulbs. My two-bits.......
