Switchbacks

Hi all,

Stupid question time. Im going to replace stock front bumper turn signal housing to one with black housing and clear front panel (off ebay).

Id also like to install switchback LED's. Now the dumb part. Theres 2 lights within each turn signal housing. After swapping out the bulbs, do i install switchback LEDs into each socket? Will the switchback LEDs function in sync? Ie) requiring me to buy 4 switchback LEDs off ebay?

Hope that made sense.

Cheers!

If I were you I'd order one set for the larger bulbs and you may need resistors. When you install the new lights just leave bulbs out of the smaller socket. The larger ones are obviously the turn signals but the smaller ones are just parking lights. They come on with the lights and go off with the lights. They don't flash while signaling. I'm sure you might could make them blink with the blinkers but there are only 2 wires (a hot and a ground) to the small bulb vs the 3 to the turn signal.

I only suggested using bulbs in the signal slots & not the running slots because it's what I did. I bought switchbacks with projectors on them so they where like mini fogs kinda lol
