Sources for LED Tail lights

Anyone have a listing of the usual suspects for rear LED tail lamps. ECR is out right now. Can't get a return phone call from Safari Dust so any other players in this market?
Thank you,
Clay

Can't you just buy them through Tom's www.Safaridust.com 's site? Or are you trying to confirm via phone that they're currently in stock??

lights

I could but I wanted to confirm a few things such as:

1. How different to does the LED look from stock lights- would it look funny if the rest of the lights are non LEDs and the tail lights are

2. Do you need the crimping tool that he sells as the ad is not clear -
"Truck-lite/Robolite NAS LED Stop Light which includes connector, These lights are a fully "Sealed Unit" Just remove your standard light and plug this unit in. FREE Shipping"

So if it includes a "connector" does that mean you have to splice your wires into a connector or "remove your standard light and plug this unit in" ....does that mean no connector and you just plug your wiring harness into the back of the LED

3. I am putting these on a 94 tub so the only reason I am having to go with the LEDs' is that the 95/97 lights are to deep and hit the 94 tub support.

Just basic question so I can order the freakin things.

You may want to try here. This is not a kit place but it's probably where most of the suppliers get the bulbs from http://www.superbrightleds.com/

Double confirm superbrightleds.com. Fast shipping, no hassle returns. They supply bulbs that fit in the same socket as the original bulb, so there is no externally visible difference.

But is he looking for led replacements of the 1156/57 bulbs in a 94 taillight or coverting to the later style taillights? Definately agree about Superbright leds although their site can be a bit confusing at first. When converting to leds in the 94 it's important to select leds that have the proper light pattern.

Kevin - converting the whole tail light housing to the later style not just the bulbs you hit it right on the head .

This is what a LED looks like on.
Hope that helps.
