Photos of the various LED lights on a truck

Trying to get an idea of the look I'd like to go with to replace the current lights on a white truck, anyone have some photos of their LED setup to help visualize the end result? Thanks guys.
Here's the current setup

Looks like the same kit I used. I got mine from Brian at Defenders NorthWest. You might check in there.

FWIW, although installing them is easy peasy, you might have to add resistors to combat the dreaded 'cross-flash'.

I have a spare set of LED lamps that ended up in the part stash that I likely won't be using, and could probably pass them on for a good deal.

Let me dig them out, check the kit completeness, and post up a photo or two. I'll also post a couple of photos of the LED set that I did put on my 130 F&R.

EDITED AFTER VISITING THE STASH/ADDING PHOTOS:

What I have as spare to my needs may not be what you're looking for, but photos are attached anyway, as are a few of my truck with what I do think you want.

There spare ones I can sell are not 75mm (Series/early & ROW Defender size), but 95mm ones, the size as installed on 95 & 97 NAS D90s. The kit parts are made by Wipac, and were as packaged, labeled and sold by Rovers North. I originally intended to put them on my truck, but decided to stay with the standard smaller size. The set I have is all new/non-installed in box, and includes four new plinths, an LED load resistor (you'll want to use one of these), four amber lamps and one red three-conductor (taillight/brakes) one. I used the other two lamps (white/red) I had for my rear fog and reverse lights. You'll need to track down the missing two via RN (Zack) or other D90-Source friendly sales cat.

If you can't use them, I'll likely put them up for sale later when I list some other parts. Let me know if you can use them, and we can work it out.

The other photos are of my truck with a Wipac 75mm set F&R. They're a big improvement over the stock bulbs. I also installed the little plastic "Bolt On Bits" light guards as shown in the photos as I thought they looked cool.

Thanks Murph, I do need the 73mm ROW lamps though. What do the retrofit LED bulbs look like when installed? Any before and after pics?

The retrofit 'bulbs' don't look too much different from incandescent except within maybe 30-40 ft you can see multiple points of light through the lenses as opposed to the one filament. I notice it because I know they are there, not sure if anyone else would. I will try to take a pic, not sure how well it will show though.

I used the 45 led 1157's from superbright in my90 and Series tail/stop lamps.

Wayne,

How long have you had your LED's bulbs for the tail/brake light?
I was thinking of doing the same, though concern the taillights (since they stay on for hours on end) could/would burn out. I've had LED's (license plate light) that got so hot it burned the LED chip. Thanks!

Hi, I've had the led's for ~5 years on various cars, none of which are daily drivers. I have not had any problems with the ones I used, haven't seen any degradation in output and they do not seem to run excessively hot.


After a bit of trial and error, I now use these 1157's exclusively, however they now appear to be end of life'd https://www.superbrightleds.com/more.../Photos&Videos Darn...


Here is a pic of my 90 w/ them in:
