Led switchbacks for 2010 style headlight

I'm looking into getting 2010 style headlights and the led switchbacks look pretty sweet. I'm wondering if I could use the switchbacks on the headlights (considering they have the turn signal bulb) instead of our year turn signals. Or maybe both?

That will get pricey. But I can get the money fairly quickly! Around $400 for all that I believe. Or is there a way to do like a turn signal delete? Haha

As long as water doesn't get in there now if you take the bulb out water isn't gonna get in there still

You can't get smoked turn signal lenses with thhese headlights? Wouldn't they go well together? That's what I was looking at getting too.

Smoked lenses (turn and quarter) and 2010 style headlights.

Also put in switchback bulbs in the headlights AND turn signals.

You definitely can get both! that's what I want to do.. But it gets expensive, that's why I wanted to minimize what I spend. Having the turn signals and headlights in sync with the switchbacks would look incredible. $140 for 2 pairs of switchbacks, $250 for headlights, and $40 for smoked turn signals

how much are the resistors so they don't hyper blink

Just talked to AM. They confirmed everything. It syncs and everything.

Now there is one question.

Whether to install switchbacks in the headlight housing AND the turn signals OR to use Amber LED's.

So essentially the question is, white to amber OR amber/off/amber etc.

What do you guys think?

If you install switchbacks in your headlight housings there is no way you will be able to see at night. I have clear turn signal housings with switchbacks and although they look cool they don't throw enough light to see where you are going. I installed HID Projector Housings and run a 6000K HID Setup.

If you check my previous posts I have videos of my switchbacks and HID's.

Hmmm. The switchbacks replace the TURN SIGNAL bulb IN the headlight housing. Not the actual headlight bulb. There's two bulbs in there.
