Default Has anyone seen these yet? Heard anything about them?

I was looking on ebay for a replacement taillight set when I found these. I think they're a little too expensive for me but thought they might look cool. It says they're plug and play. Click-> http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/01-09...Q5fAccessories

El-cheapo Chinese LEDs with no voltage protection. They can safety handle about 15ma without overheating.

There are better ones out there, but I looked at a set too, that's where I am going to go with my taillights, pick up a truck mag you can find em in there all day. They aren't cheap but they work great from the few trucks I've seen them on.

You can do a full superflux swap for about the same price and get tail lights that are WAY better than these.

I don't know what that is...could I get an explanation...I know you can get the 1024L swap or whatever it is. Is this what you are talking about?

No they have the resistor built in so the truck still thinks the regular bulbs are in the tails. Check out Tys4x4 (I think that is his s/n) truck. He has them. IIRC he had the same ones but with the red lenses and night shaded them and then broke one so bought a set of the black ones and night shaded them too.

I have the "smoked" ones on my truck and love them. I was a little worried about them looking to ricey, but my truck is silver & they just blend into it. They are very bright (almost annoyingly so.) They come in clear (like the ones you linked to,) smoked and red. They are expensive and I was debating weather I should get these or convert some of the '07 tails with LED bulbs. Since I have an '01, I would have had to get the newer tails plus the LED conversion bulbs which makes that upgrade about the same price... And I wanted something a little different. The '07 tails look sweet, but everyone has them. If you want I could get some pics...

Putting a load resistor inside of a tail light is another poor design move. The wattage drawn is way too high and your creating even more heat that will ruin the already cheap low current LEDs.

You must have overly sensitive eyes. Even my L1224R's beat those.
