    Awesome. I think you will like them.

    Question(s) for everyone:
    As mentioned, I just added LEDs mostly throughout the interior and want to add a few more. Primarily backup lights and potentially fog lights.
    * I've heard several people mention blowing a fuse when installing LEDs. Can someone explain why this is common? I have little to no electrical expertise, so bare with me. Relating to when I swapped out all of the bulbs in my house - before I switched, it seemed a regular bulb would blow every other week or so. Once I put in the LEDs, haven't had the first issue and they've all lasted at least 5 years. Tying this back to LEDs in our trucks, wouldn't this "lighten" the load on the circuit, almost eliminating the chance for a blown fuse? I assume it's different types of watts/amps/voltage/whatever, but figured the concept is the same.

    *Anyone have any LED sets they would recommend for the white backup lights and fog lights for 3rd Gen? I'm eyeing several on Amazon, but looking for some that someone has actually installed with no issues.

    * If I understand correctly, switching to LED on the headlights is not as simple as popping in the LED bulbs, right?

    Thanks in advance. This forum is awesome. Any advice/info is appreciated.

    Good as far as I can tell. I think I may have one blown in my backup light above the back window, but haven't checked it yet. The company itself is awesome.
