    Lol i just had this issue. fellow forum member @Island Cruiser turned me onto the VLEDS V6 Triton LED's and reviews on them all seem to say they work.

    https://www.vleds.com/shop-application/turn-signals-front/3157/3157-ck.html

    I had already purchased these ones linked below, so I'm gonna test those out first and see if they work. Also, something to note that took me a while to realize...I have some cheapo sylvania LED bulbs that work, but hyperflash. At first I thought they didn't work for turns/emergency flashers, but i just needed to flip the bulb around in the socket. They hyperflash, but turn signals and flashers work fine...just twice as fast. I'll report back on the linked ones later if they work without hyperflashing.

    Thanks for the shoutout, brother! I always had some type of issue with cheaper ones in the past and finally decided to pull the trigger on quality ones(thanks to @Braunschwaga lmfao) soon as I saw a sale. But do let me know how those Sylvania ones turn out though cuz I’d be curious to hear your feedback

    gotchu my guy

    sorry if there was confusion, the sylvania ones i have in already do work for all functions, they just hyperflash which is a bit annoying but not huge. I'm keeping them as a backup, bought them on Amazon for like $14

    I'll def let you know how the GTR Armor Series Ones I ordered work out when i get em in later today. A bit cheaper than the VLEDS, so we'll see. if not i'll definitely be taking your suggestion as a proven functioning alternative

    Just a heads up. I bought some canbus integrated LED's off Amazon as well, and those not only hyperflashed, but also didn't work for turn signals either. just the on/off functionality.

    I don't think our trucks actually are as canbus system, my research showed we have a CK style plug. But do keep us posted, and i'll do the same on the ones I just received.

    I tend to overshare information which leads to these confusions, so the fault is mine as much as it is yours lol

    just don't ever let it happen again :taco:

    yeah those are different than the ones I ordered, curious to see if they'll work. keep us posted!

    from everything I've seen, 3157 bulbs can be used interchangeably with 4157.

    Little update. I found out that the cheapo sylvanias I had actually weren't fully functioning...either the flashing turn signals would work, or it would just stay on solid at all times depending how the bulb was flipped. So those are out lol.

    The headlight revolution GTR LED's i bought work to stay on solid AND function as turn signals, but they still hyperblink, and don't turn on for the DRL setting, only once they are turned to the 2nd or 3rd click. However, they do still hyperflash.

    I think i'm just going to stick with those ones for now since the functions all work except DTRL at the first click, and hyperflash isn't such a huge deal to me really.
