    Bought a new bar and lights for the front end. The led's I bought kept burning out. I like the way it looks.

    Good job! What lights are those? My opinion is regular candleburners are better than LEDs. Here's my Hella 450s-been on there since the early 2000s and still have the original halogen bulbs.

    I’ve been toying with getting one of those light bars cause they’re cheap. How sturdy is it? A lot of bounce from the lights?

    The lights are off of a kamatsu skid star I think. Buddie was moving and asked me if I wanted them

    What about dome lights, I bought a set and they blink. I found some that say error free but looking for someone that knows a set that will work.

    DE3175 bulbs with 3W / 100ohm resistors have worked well for me. Excuse the rough soldering job. LEDs consume less energy so you need the extra resistance to work with the stock wiring. Does the blinking stop if you turn on the map lights?

    Yes I think, I took them out and went back to stock because they just blinked. I can get some 100 k resistors

    Easiest fix for the dome light is to solder a resistor from contact to contact. I used 2 1 ohm resistors, and mine work fine now, even the dimming, etc. It also fixes the map lights, so you don't have to do resistors on those LED bulbs.
