    I have the LED headlights with ihacker harness and was wondering what LED turn signal bulb(front) you are using that work well with the harness. Don’t want any hyper flash or any problems with The bulbs. Please let me know what you that have the harness have used for turn signal bulbs for the front. Don’t need switchbacks or anything.

    What's your budget?

    also hyperflash seems to be a truck by truck basis

    HIGH VISIBILITY AMBER 50 LED 7443 7443CK 7440 (vleds.com)

    No resistors above

    With resisters below

    HIGH VISIBILITY AMBER 50 LED 7443 7443CK 7440 + HYPERFLASH FIX (vleds.com)


    I've seen people on Youtube use the below with no resistors and had no hyperflash

    Amazon.com: JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright PX Chips 7440 7441 7443 7444 Amber Yellow Turn Signal LED Bulbs : Automotive

    I ran a set of the above for years in my tacoma and they were great but switched to the OEM LED headlights that have the DRL / Turn switchback in the headlight. Taco is a TRD sport so it didn't run them as a DRL.

    Do you have you headlights wired with amber DRL on or the amber DRL delete?

    I have used Supebrightleds.com leds on several of my vehicles, so far never had a burn out! As far as hyperflash, I have always replaced the standard flasher relay with a CF18 relay, stops hyper flash with no resistors, bother, $18 bucks for the CF18! Here's the URL to find them, there are 2 types, dumb relay, just defeats hyperflash, or the smart CF18, programmable. Costs way more, but it's your dime!

    I just did the auxito’s and put resistors. No problems. Since you’re a 17 I’m pretty sure almost every bulb you buy will need resistors unless you drop like 200 bucks. I mounted the resistors on the metal rad support to help with heat dissipation. Can’t remember where your switch pros is mounted, but if it’s the in-front of battery mount, you might get some wires a little too close to the resistors.

    Thanks, I just installed new TRD Pro LED Headlights in my 2021, and want to swap the amber incandescent bulbs for LED.
