Default My L1224R LED tailights phase 1

[b]Finally had time to start this. I was looking for a bulb socket so I wouldn't have to permanently attach the bulb to the tail housing.

Found some at autozone for 8 dollars each junkyards here wanted about the same price for used ones[?]

This is what I started with


Then cut the center out


Here is the L1224R Led


I then had to dremel off the tabs it has on there for the new socket to fit over


L1224R LED with new socket sitting on there. Will epoxy new socket and it's base tomorrow.

I didn't get mine from him I wont go into details about why. If your a regular there you may know.

I got mine from a junk yard here locally. I only paid 15 bucks for 2 of them.

If that junk yard knew what these cost from the dealer they would be pissed

Last I checked they were 100 dollars for one

This website is my best friend. You can search the whole state. Just search those models for taillights. If you get a hit on one call them up and see about the bulb and some of the wire.

Ya this is not a simple mod to just do in a couple hours total tim invested I would guess 3-5 hours total and a lot of frustration I am 1 of 4 people to have ever done this on a ranger


Here are some night time shots in the garage the camera gives it a very bright glare look it is not at all though

These were taken with the brakes applied






This is just the running lights
