    I just ordered all head light, tail light, and license plate bulb replacement LEDS (with the exception of getting the low and high beam head light bulbs. Went with HID conversion for those. 35w on low beam and 55w on the high beam)

    From what I can determine every thing is plug and play except for all of the amber turn signal bulbs. They need a resistor on each bulb so those are on the way as well. Other interesting note is if your truck has the "bulb out" detecting capability there are different Can bus type bulbs that you will have to use vs the stock replacement LED bulbs. I tried to figure out if my truck has that feature and I don't think that its that smart. I pulled one of my bulbs out to see what I got on the instrument cluster and did not see any indication of a bulb being out so I THINK that I am good.


    Sorry if I am behind on the knowledge about all of this but if anyone is up on this and knows another way to check to see if your truck has the "bulb out" feature let me know.

    Is there a trick in getting out the license plate bulbs? Can't seem to figure it out

    They just twist 90 degrees out of the socket.

    I'm not talking about the bulb itself. I get my hand under the bumper, I just can't seem the get the harness separated form the bumper. I should have made myself clearer

    I remembered you posted this the other day when neither of my revers lights were working... looks like it's back to regular bulbs for me
