    Here is a short video after I swapped the passenger side front turn signal with a Triton LED kit and left the drivers side stock. As you can see, the output is almost identical but the LED "flash effect" is much more obvious when both lamps are activated and flashing.



    The install on the passenger side was very straightforward while the drivers side requires you to remove the entire air box to access the turn signal socket and wiring. The Triton kit requires NO cutting or splicing into the factory wiring at all and includes the control boxes (resistors) to eliminate any "fast flash" bulb out warnings.

    My next project on this 2014 DD is a kit to stop the DRL's from extinguishing when a turn signal is activated. I just don't like the look of it and I am not convinced it is truly a safety feature. The turn signals can easily be seen by other motorists with the DRL activated.

    Keep us updated on DRL kit. I would like to do that as well. What kit are you referring to to accomplish this? LOOKS REALLY GOOD!!!

    You guys are such a bad influences LOL! I'm tempted to do this as well

    Might go the cheaper route tho, but also with vleds.

    Wonder if this will work and not get any error fast flash... http://www.vleds.com/shop-bulb-numbe...157-amber.html

    Too much to fit in this box
    The tritons are one of the few drop in led bulbs that work better than the incandescent bulbs in terms of brightness. They're very expensive though. It's hit or miss with other leds, you just have to make sure they're bright enough. Most of them are so dim you'd be better off sticking a candle in your turn signal.

    I used 3157 switch backs in mine. Had to add a resistor to each bulb and cut and trim the socket to fit. But well damn worth it for one of a kind lights in our trucks. They switch from the 8k color LED to a amber for the turn signal.

    So are they always lit in 8K then switches to blinking amber when turned on?

    Alright guys I bought these

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They work great put in one at a time and trying them out they blinked fast for about 5 seconds and then the car synchronize all the lights and they work perfectly and man are they bright. If you put them in and they don't work reverse the polarity and they will fire up. I love them look great and they are cheap.

    Somehow I have doubts based on the reviews. Can you take a picture comparing the two?
