    Check the TTORA Garage Section....
    After installing my LED turn signals on my front bumper and after a handful of months of listening it run super fast.
    I gotten tired of it and looked into slowing it down.
    Yes I know about the RELAY modification, but I did not want to go down that route.
    So a quick check on the inter-web and I found that there was a relay replacement that will work with LEDs!
    Here is my write up.

    Since I recently upgraded mine to LEDs I saw this post this morning and was surprised that the auto zone here had them! Thanks for the write up!

    I just did this last night, perfect. A little faster than stock, but I'm not complaining. Better than those bulky resistors. Thanks a ton!

    Worked for me. If you have LEDs as turn signals at all, anywhere on your truck...this EASY mod corrects it.

    What if you only have LEDs on the front?

    They'll hyper flash. Two LEDs up front, regular out back, or vice versa...they'll hyper flash. I'm running LEDs up front and regular incandescents in the back, with the flasher relay, they hyper flashed. After the EP35 relay, no hyper flash.

    Ok cool, that's what I was wondering. I'll be using two rigid A series as turn signals up front but stock lights in the rear.

    I was thinking of the exact same thing! 2 Rigid dually's, amber for turn signals. Well, that's for when I get my tube bumper down the line a bit. Kind of over kill and would put every Audi and BMW to shame...well, front turn signals anyways.

    I'm sure it's different, but by how much I'm unsure of. The '05+ are different than the '96-'04 Tacoma's.

    This is a thread a few months old, but I would like to add that you can get these relays at Superbrightleds.com since last August. They have the right ones for your application, and now they are showing that they have the flashers for those with DRLs, which have a larger connector on their flasher.

    I have LED front signal lights, I installed resistors as well as this EP35 Relay mod, the turn signals are slow and fine UNTIL I press the brake pedal - for example if I am turning left at an intersection and rolling the turn signal is fine, but as soon as I press the brakes the turn signals go fast!? anyone have any ideas?
