    I tried a few different ones. The first set were very bright but after a week caused the turn signal to blow. I tried a second set with the same result. Went with another brand and they were not as bright as stock.

    So what are the best/brightest 4157 CK LED non switch back bulbs that won't blow fuses? What's everyone successfully using? Im not interested in switchback bulbs. Just looking for a good replacement for my incandescent bulbs.

    There was a kit discussed on that thread I posted for the headlights for swapping all other bulbs to LEDs

    I get all my LEDs from Diode Dynamics. They are a bit more expensive but have a great warranty and have never failed on me.

    Try vleds.com I've used them for all of my exterior LEDs and love them.

    Thanks for the replies. I contacted Diode Dynamics with some questions. Vleds.com had some interesting bulbs but $160 for one set and even a cheaper option was still $60 for a pair.

    Vleds is pricey but worth it. Besides, I get tired of seeing people complain that their $10 LEDs from China burned out after a month.

    Obviously we are all partial to where we buy our stuff from. I buy everything LED from Diode Dynamics. They are one of the fastest growing US manufacturers in the country right now. Plus they are local for me and very active in the car community.

    I bought the XP80s. Unlike most Missouri drivers, I use my turn signals and wanted to make sure people knew it LOL. Theyre so bright I can see them light up the road around me HAHA

    Just make sure you also buy the Flasher relay for your truck otherwise you will get hyperflash. If you need help with that. LMK

    Those little suckers are worth $90 bucks! I when one down and bought the HP11's and some side marker lights. The order was still $77 but for some quality LED's I consider it a good investment. No worries about the flasher. I modified my stock flasher to prevent the hyperflash.

    Also they have a really good black Friday sale. I believe it's 20% off storewide. Just letting you know since November is right around the corner. If you follow them on facebook they also have quite a few contests. It's also a good place to stay up to date on new products. For instance they just announced that they will be offering LED low beams very soon. Those are what I'm waiting for
