    They make them I know that because I was looking at some for my old 97. But it'd be just like a new truck, you'd have to put a whatchyamacall it on there so the truck doesn't think a light is burned out.



    If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

    I believe the term you're looking for is 'load resistor'.

    HAHA

    Or you can do the fronts and rears and purchase a new flasher made for LEDs

    i have installed led light on a utility body but not to fit the origional lights. If you switch to leds you may also have to change the flasher, the leds do not draw enough and it seems like you have a bulb out. At least mine did and the flasher fixed it.
