    Awesome! Definitely interested in Option A. Really wish I didn't drop the money on VLEDs reverse bulbs already, however.

    You can wait for option B and keep your reverse bulbs.

    Ha! I am open to all options at this point. I just know that I want nothing to do with halogen any more.

    No. VLEDS will be coming out with a similar kit relatively soon, but I went over those differences in the OP. They won’t be carrying our kit though.

    I can absolutely ship to Canada! It'll be an extra $20 to get up there. I pulled the Canada functionality from the site as it was making a mess out of shipping quotes. Just shoot me a PM with your email address and selection(s). I can fire you over an invoice!

    So do I still need resistor If I have OEM led with I-hacker harness (originally did not equipped with OEM LED headlight)?

    Depends on if you replaced the turn signal bulbs with LED too. The OEM LED lights still use halogen turn signal bulbs.

    Front turn signal is LED. So do I still need resistor?

    I’ll assume not, but it hasn’t been tested yet. If you buy one and don’t need I’ll let you return it.

    If you have an Amazon or Autozone amber LED up there I would say absolutely yes. Their draw is just so minimal.

    I would defer back to the screenshot from the preorder site that has the answer. But @memario1214 is awesome and will let you return them if you just want to pick them up to be sure you’ve got what you need.

    NOBODY MOVE!

    :quickdraw:

    But seriously these trucks are finicky, and we have not had an opportunity to test the HotTails out in every scenario. Here's what we DO know. At worst if you don't get them you'll be inconvenienced by some hyperflash for a few days while I zip a set of resistors your way. If you do buy them, and don't need them all I ask is that you tell me your build scenario so that I can log it. As long as you don't install them I'll take em back.

    I'll try to break my resistor guidance down a little more here (of course we're still shooting from the hip):
    • Resistor - YES
      • You put an LED turn signal bulb in your headlight, and did not add a resistor in-line with it
        • The only bulb exceptions would be Diode Dynamics XPR or VLEDS V6 Extreme
      • You have Morimoto XB headlight housings
        • This is simply a hunch based on past experience with XB headlights
    • Resistor - NO
      • If you're OEM up front
      • If you've added resistance to the front turn signal

    Nicely broken down. Should be crystal clear for those wondering if they need a resistor with this kit. Should.

    Not sure if this helps, but I had OEM halogen headlights with the led drl strip. I installed Morimoto XB's, and a few weeks later, installed the rear turn signal Vleds 921 high output bulb along with the resistors.
