Exclamation Trucklite LED Group Buy

Please see my previous thread if you need to catch up.

First off, an apology to all for the lack of responses. Ugh, Holidays, Kids, Colds, I'm sure you all know how it goes.

From Kevin at Mud-UK:
"I now have the prices in place for the lamps pre-wired with the Defender compatible connectors.

Stop-Tail: 35.00

Turn signal: 35.00

Fog: 35.00

Reverse: 75.00

Turn Signal relay: 9.00

OE Plinth 8.00

To clarify a couple of points that have been raised on the forum thread. The flasher relay is the Wipac programmable LED specific relay that will work with either two or four LED turn signals. With the Wipac relay you 'dial in' the correct flash rate to suit the number of lamps fitted. The Wipac relay does flash the trailer warning light on the dash as is common when converting to LED's but still retains an audible 'tick-tick' which some aftermarket relays do not.

All lamps are supplied with the correct Econoseal connectors so the install is plug and play. See pic.

I can supply the clear style LED lamps for the same price if anyone wants them. To clarify the colored lens lamps are the Trucklite lamps. The clear lens lamps are LE Perei lamps which are the exact same lamps LR uses for its OE fitment on special edition Defenders. I have included some pics of the clear lens version for ref.

The manufacturer is quoting a 15-day lead time for wiring the connectors."

So, I guess we can start a list of whose in and get the ball rolling. I had discussed with Kevin of having one complete shipment sent to me to cut down on shipping and then breaking up the kits and sending them out to all interested parties from my office in Long Island, NY.

I've never orchestrated a group buy so any help is of course appreciated.
Please see attached photos for reference.

Let's start with this and see where it takes us....

Hey Jonathan. Looks good! You basically want to start by establishing as steep a discount as possible with the vendor based on a threshhold of orders from the group buy, then just relaying here how many orders you need in order to meet the group buy discount, maybe a deposit from people so that they don't just say "I'm interested" never to be heard from again, then the rest is just ordering and coordinating the shipping. If there are a ton of orders out of VA, maybe having a shipment sent directly there since they have regular happy hours, etc.

Here was the rough idea from the November prices MUD had provided. I had hoped a group buy might bring the price down 15% (or at least some discount) if a certain number of orders was reached, but it looks like the prices have actually gone up a little since then.

**1x Reverse Light = 70 = $111.30
**3x Econoseal 2-pin male connector = 9 = $14.30
**2x Econoseal 3-pin male connector = 6 = $9.54
**Shipping to US by Fedex = 40 = $63.60

Total: 255 = $405.00

Do they make these trucklites for the front sides of the headlight for a 93/94?

Is this going to work for replacing all the lights on NAS 90's? If so, and if it's not going to take months, I'm in... passenger side turn signal on my ride goes out like clockwork every two weeks... I'm tired of dealing with it.

Will these work with a newer style 110 5 door tub? I'm thinking the Puma style tub lights have some variability compared to the 83 etc... Lights. Can anyone clarify? If the work with the newer tub, I'm in.

I'm in for a set to do front and rears in stock colors... Will these replace all lights but side markers and headlights?

Having seen many led lights on Audis peering out through the snow, I'm sticking with good old fashioned halogen headlight bulbs.
