    Well, I had bought these Antline tail light/brake bulbs 11 months ago. They worked great, nice and bright. I threw the extra two from the 4 pack in the glove box, thinking I would need them years from now. WRONG. One bulb quit in November, and the other died in January. So I am on the other two and not trusting them. In the bumper to bumper traffic we have in L.A. I tend to get rear-ended quite a bit (last Tundra had 4 bumpers over the 17 years, 5 rear end accidents) hence the lure of LEDs. But before I buy some expensive bulbs, I thought I would try something else from Amazon. So I searched and came up with these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08311LWQN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Curious if anyone else has tried these. I bought them but haven't installed them yet. I wonder if they will hyper flash on my '19 Limited...

    Same issue I had. Bought last April I think and lasted through January of this year. I put the stock bulbs back in and called it a day. Might save up for some VLED bulbs.

    Not sure about your set up, but having a trailer hitch/ball mounted tends to keep people off the tail a little farther than not having one. Psychological.

    They are cheaply made Chinese bulbs. What did you expect? I’ve always bought quality led bulbs and never had an issue. I’m using leds in my tail lights that are 4 years old.

    I have had good luck with Pillips or Sylvania LEDs, not much more but better quality.

    Sorry to hear the Antline LEDs are NG. I also tried them. I probably don't have as much time on mine. No problems so far, but having to constantly check for burned-out stop bulbs will be a PITA. The price was too good to be true. :(

    I've been running the JDM Astar LEDs all around in both of my trucks for a few years and no issues.

    Well, my front blinkers are also cheap Amazon's, the JDM Astar and they have been on the truck since last April and I can't find fault with them. Guess I could check out their brake lights if these new ones turn out to be crap... or if Phillips or Sylvania has something that works it's worth a shot. The truck has stock '19 Limited light housings.
