    Do you have the radial version? They look nice, going to order a pair.

    Yes, I have the radial version

    I also upgraded to SONAR LED tails and ditched the crappy stock after burners.

    What does the radial give you over the non radial one? I ordered some 3 watt DDM tunning LED bulbs for my reverse lights and there horrid! These look nice

    The radial bulbs simply have more LEDS around the length of the bulb, where the non radial has only one LED at the top with the lens.

    The theory is that in a housing with a reflector that will push light to the side the radial LEDs will give more light, otherwise they dont do much. the price is identical, and power usage is negligible so you might as well get the radials.

    These bulbs are incredible, i have not taken pictures of my own but flip through that thread and you will see...

    this is a good place to start to find your bulb size, then just match it up with whats listed at retro solutions.

    If they are 3156, then its plug and play. Only using 1 function, so no resistor needed.

    Holy *****......those things are crazy bright! I just put a set in my '09 Silverado. I'm thinking of removing the lights under the bumper now because I have too much light.
