    I’ve got a set of Vled resistors I could sell. I think they are a bit pricier than anything from Amazon—I will verify Monday. Ordered them just in case I needed them. Not sure how many ohms either....

    The reverse is also socketed with a pigtail so that it can be relocated.
    This was just a test, but replace the backup bulb with yellow.
    In my case, wiring adapts to the Triton V6 (switchback).

    Nice where’d you get the plugs/sockets? I’d like to keep from cutting wiring also

    Or, pods / flush mount(s). That's my plan.

    It is going to be a MESO thing. I’m not sure exactly how he is going to offer it, but stay tuned.

    Your just a tester? Figured you wired them up.
    I’m not wanting to make my reverse a turn, I would rather make the entire red “C” the turn like the OP. I’m afraid Meso is going to go with the turn in the reverse as I know he is a fan of the Amber turn there.

    I've seen some GMC that have exactly the style setup that I wish Toyota would have gone with.

    I’m sure he will offer this different ways. I am the one who did this. I was encouraged by this very thread. The path here was time consuming and a fair bit of work, and I have no interest beyond my own needs. Since MESO has gone full time with the mod business, I turned everything over where he can put his connections/refinements/talents to work on products for others. Give him time to develop a plan and get up to date with all the other products he is trying to fulfill.

    If you try and get all the parts you need at your local dealer, expect several to be on distributor backorder and your bill total to be about $150. :eek:
