    I hate the look of Orange turn signals. i know for a fact the bulb itself is orange. with being said, i want to swap out the orange bulb, with a white bulb. does anyone know what size they are and if this is possible?

    White turn signals are illegal in Maryland for highway use. The only white light allowed in your tail lights is the backup light. You can get a ticket.

    § 22-219. Signal lamps and signal devices.

    (d) Electric turn signals - Rear lamps.- The lamps showing to the rear shall be mounted on the same level and as widely spaced laterally as practicable, and, when signaling, shall emit a red or amber light, or any shade of color between red and amber.

    White lights in the front turn signals should be okay, though.

    Check your state's DOT regs a bit closer. Most of the states are OK with white or amber FRONT turn signal bulbs.

    As for options, clear bulb as mentioned (this is what I did too), chrome bulb (expensive), amber bulb with light coat of silver engine paint (cost effective, did this on last truck and motorcycle, lasts quite well).

    I actually just ordered 2 sets of Orange LED lights for my front and rear turn signals. they look clear, until they light up they are orange. and 1 set of 24white LEDs for my rear brakes!
