    First you have to identify the bulb size for the lights you want to replace;

    Then you can either google the bulb size + "LED bulb" or similar; or you can check out iJDMtoy.com

    Thought I added a pic of the lower lights but I now see that I didn't. So I think it's official, no more incandescence bulbs in the lawn ornament. [MENTION=50075]SurrealOne[/MENTION] Can it be a lawn ornament if the pics I take are with the truck always in a different location? :money:

    If that's the primary reason it moves (and the secondary reasons are to wash or refuel it), then yes. :rofl:

    Yeah, i know the bulb numbers to use and everything, i just was told that you can only have a certain number of LED's or they can over heat the housings, that you cant run LED's in the DRL's, and was told that switchbacks wont work with chevy's. Thats mainly what i was asking, if theres anything needed to be done to make them work properly.

    I'm not familiar with this information about LEDs and have never had an issue with any that I've run.

    I did my LED's today but since I'm not at my computer, I can't load any pictures but will have some up in the next day or so. I don't think they are as bright as AMac's are but they will work for me.

    Here is a link to the album I got set up for the LED's. I wasn't able to get a pic of the lights out of the housings though. But I did end up buying a test light to find the correct wires. The bottom parking/signal lights had 6 wires to them. The extra 3 were for the upper light bulb. Still needed to run all 4 on resistors. Like I said before though, they don't seem to be as bright as AMac's. I might order some that match my HID's better but that will be something I do later. Hope the link works:
