    I am wanting to convert my stock brake/turn signal bulbs to LED. Can anyone recommend a kit that might work?

    Thanks!

    For brakes and reverse, have had good luck with Sylvania and Pillips from Amazon. Much more affordable than the VLEDs. Get red LEDs for brakes.

    Using Auxbeam for signals, again much more affordable. Signals need the resistor to avoid hyper flash.

    I want to do my front headlight turn signals as switchbacks. Not trying to piggyback but anyone got recommendations for something like this?

    For inexpensive....I went with Antline. Wrap a piece of electrical tape around the socket before you insert though cause they don’t fit super tight without doing that. I haven’t done the signals yet. I think I may use red bulbs for those too, as most vehicles don’t have yellow turn signals in the rear anymore

    For cargo, the third brake light, and the reverse lights I used Sirius LED.

    It is built in on my Gen 2 Tritons. You will have to call and see if it is the same on the V6 Tritons.
