    Morimoto XB fog lights in! Now to add H11 LED bulbs for the low beams. Is there a consensus now on the best bulbs to get ?

    Where did you buy those stroke 2 leds? Is this also for hi/lo beams? Factory lights suck! I feel like my fogs are brighter than the headlights.

    Thanks!

    I switched out my low beams with the:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LNOK4E4/
    I really think that my LED day time lights put off more than these new LED low beams do. Is it because i went cheap? could i just need to adjust the beam? Have any of you experienced this?

    After replacing the Hi/Lo's have you experienced any rattling or moving of the bulbs? I want to order LEDs but I want to ask you that the brightness is at least 50% better than the stock.. I don't need a huge amount but I know I want at least 50% better than the stock. Thank you so much! your posting has made this soooo much easier.

    They are low beams. But i did have a morimoto hid in there before. And if i was off the pavement the lights would bounce. Havent had any issues yet with the stroke 2's. No warmup time. It is not quite as bright as hid but the light dispersement is way better

    I purchased the the blinker and rear brake LED bulb sets that the OP posted and got hyperflashing. Not wanting to use resitors, is there any other way i could try and fool the system? I really like the output of the lights but the hyperblinking drives me nuts. In the interm ive got a few other ideas but was wondering if anyone else might be having this issue? For the record this is for a '16 double cab long bed with tech package and have the exact bulbs below

    I'm having the same issue, but only on one side. I bought some new bulbs but haven't had a chance to switch them out yet.

    The truck thinks that due to the low power draw from LEDS that they are blown incandescent bulbs a safety measure they blink fast so you check them out. You can buy resistor type bulbs Canbus or use this for the LED you already bought: https://www.amazon.com/LUYED-2PCS-6...qid=1482823410&sr=1-1&keywords=7440+resistors
