Nice, thanks for posting. I am talking to Kevin now and I think I am going to order the Trcklite/ECR style ones. But I do like them all : )

As an aside, we generally stock the Mud UK kits as well as the full line of Mud items.

I hope you know that you're going to have to change your relay. LED lights use a different relay.

The same. Look over here. I couldn't have possibly posted more info on these.

They are da' bomb. Just make sure you

1) confirm which wires are for your tail/stop/ground on the red lights, before wiring them up. There have been so many issues with people (including myself) thinking they were wire up properly based purely on the color of the wire(s), but they were not.
2) if you're buying LED turn signals, make sure you get the 4 pin LED relay
3) if you're buying LED turn signals for both the rear AND the front, do the rears first, confirm that they work properly, THEN do the fronts. If there are then any issues, you can work on the fronts (may require some resistors on the front).
4) make sure all butt connectors/splicing or re-wiring that you do is properly insulated...you don't want salt or any other corrosives getting in there.

I think that's all I can think of.

Exclamation LED group buy

To All,
I have offered to organize a group buy with Kevin from MUDD on the Trucklite lamps that we are all looking for. He is in the process of getting the necessary info together as far as pricing & shipping is concerned. I will start a group but thread as soon as the info is available. These will be colored Trucklite lamps identical to the ones that ECR uses. They will have the connectors applied and will come with the relay needed for the flasher on the turn indicator. I will post all info as soon as available and we can see if we want to execute a group buy.
Please do not PM until I have started the other thread as I don't want to forget anyone.
Thanks,
Jon

LED group buy

Hey all, I have attempted to reach Jon who said he was going to start a buy thread but he isn't answering his PM"s or his email. Kevin at UK-MUD ltd initially told me he was getting pricing for John and the group buy. Kevin reached out to me as he isn't able to get in contact with Jon either.
So I am going to take this on unless Jon steps forward. I will start a buy thread and do my best to look at previous people interested from this thread. As soon as I get pricing from Kevin I will post it on the buy thread.
Craig

Craig. Be careful. Everyone who has previously started a group buy of LEDs has since gone missing: Mike (ECR), Jim (JimC - although he's still around sometimes), Tom (FlaD90), and now Jonathan (JBOD77). If you need any info on these LEDs, let me know, but I think I supplied every minor detail previously (including the connectors to make them plug and play), so you should be all set.

Thanks Josh, I don't want to go missing so I will tread lightly. I was only thinking about the other members who want the same lights. I will wait to hear pricing from Kevin. Who else can supply them?
Thanks again
Craig

That's actually really funny.

Maybe I just moved to Europe to find the source of these LEDs and won't return home until I have intact specimens as proof.

I really fond of my clear LED lights. I just brought clear side markers for my truck and about to look for LED bulbs for it. Good luck with your search.

Hi Cougar,
Thank you for posting !
Which lamps do you have please ?
I have the ROW lamp positions, too. Worry that the NAS size lamps are too big...
Do those come in red/amber, as well ?
(still up in the air about which to use...)
Thanks !
