    So for the people who have upgraded to 2018 lights has anyone added LED turn signals? If so, please share the part number and brand. I tried to install mine from 2016 retros and they did not fit the socket of 2018's. I had the GTR from Headlight Revolution and the bulbs base would not fit down into the socket.

    I'm interested in this as well.
    The bulb number is 7444NA amber.
    I believe 7443 will also fit.
    I think with most LED bulbs I'll need a resistor to prevent hyperflash. My curiosity is if the blinker light is also a DRL in addition to the LED strip DRLs. Which would open the door for some switchbacks.
    I'll be installing my 18 headlights this weekend (with an @iHacker harness) and would like to upgrade to all LED bulbs if its not too difficult or expensive.
    Has anyone done this project yet?

    I used Profile bulbs from The Retrofit Source .I already had 3 ohm Vled resistors behind the tail lights for my previous switchback fronts and LED rear turns. They work great so far .

    Thanks D. I'll stick with halogen for now but I'm sure it'll drive me nuts and I'll end up going the VLed route at some point. No need for resistor with those?

    Yes, you need the resistors. Triton V6 is all plug-in, no splicing.

    These are what I put in mine. They work really good compared to the halogens. No resistors needed.

    Installed my V6 Tritons today. What a quality product. Vled knocks it out of the park every time!

    Agreed, have VLED on nearly all outer truck lights, recently did the cargo and 3rd brake light after waiting for the cargo with no interference with Key fob. Quality product, without a doubt. Worth the money. Thrilled beyond belief.

    No problem! FYI in the video the left one is VLED and the right one is stock halogen.
