Fitting 4" LED round tails and 2" round reverse lights into the SEMA JK.

So here's the question. How do I slow down the blink rate now that its faster with the LED's?

Thanks,
Jason

I just read this thread on another site and it looks like it might answer your question. Good Luck!!

the load resistors work great and real real easy to install :D

Ahh, so add a resistor...makes sense. That one says 6ohm/50watt...I'm sure I can grab some of those at the local Fry's

You guys sure that will work? The flasher system in the Jeep is not conventional, load resistors are designed to work with the thermal type of flasher unit......

Did the resistors work without any JK side affects??

I am going to be doing the round LED's as well soon.

Just a flare, not a fender, but they will be available eventually.

I never did get to putting any in. Right now I'm just letting them blink fast. I'll probably address it after SEMA

the load resistors work perfect with no side effects, just a little side note you have to add a resistor for every led signal light installed. So if you add front turn signals and rear stop, turn, tail lights you will need 4 resistors

That looks really clean! What did you do with the spare Tire? I mounted a Red LED center brake light to the back of the hard top to get a little better vision out the back, but nothing like the gain you have! :smokin:

This would be the option for someone moving the spare tire to the inside or up onto a roof rack.

Final version the license plate sits 2" lower to make sure there is room for the vent to breathe (otherwise your heater won't flow at all)

If you retain the spare tire carrier, we make a 3rd brake extension and tire spacer to make it sit over a large tire.

We'll also be doing a replacement side mounted license plate bracket for those folks keeping their spare tire carrier, with applications for standard rear corners, and these flat style led corners.

You can also buy the rear corners with no taillight holes if you're wanting to do your own style of lights. You should start seeing these up on websites soon.

When I put mine in I used one from a Harley aftermarket supply online. I cant remember which one but it has all the leads in one and its waterproof. If I can find it I'll post it up...
Search for load equilizers, I cant (dont know how- computer stupid) post a link for some reason

those are cheaper than what I used, I would probably go with them...
