I did not convert the side markers. I got the front LED from Bolts on Bits in the UK, however I am still looking for front LED signals that fit and work. Unfortunately the turn signals I got didnt work and messed up the whole lighting system of the truck. Let me know if you find them, I could use a set myself.

Also the Valet scratched my roof by not listening when I told him nothing under 6"10....So I just got it back from being freshly painted. Glad he didnt listen, it looks fantastic.

Josh, before you took the front signals out, did you try putting resistors in? They can sometimes fix the problem.

Don't feel too bad, it doesn't always work. Sometimes the LEDs all around mess with the system, but the resistors can sometimes fix it. The issue is usually not enough draw, and the resistors can trick the system to create the draw it needs for them to work.

I'll check out Bolt on Bits for the front LEDs. When lit are yours white in color? Did you get your LED headlamps from them as well?

I had to change my blinker relay when I added the KBX grill because I had to change to the smaller Euro style front turn indicators. Does anyone know if this is the same mod that is needed to allow the LEDs to work?

It can be, but sometimes both a new relay AND resistors is needed, and sometimes it's more complicated than that. Haha.
