    I would like to install my led hideaway kit in my reverse taillights. Does anyone have a picture of where they drilled the hole?

    I ordered clear. Did the headlights no problem just wondering where everyone is mounting in the tails?

    There is a spot in the tail for hideaways from the factory, but it is behind a red lens.

    I know almost nothing about strobes, but am going to get a set of hideaways. So if I want to use the factory hole in the taillight would I get red strobes or clear, same with the headlights, I was going to put them in the amber turn signal, so clear or amber strobes. I'm sure this is a dumb question, but I don't want to order the wrong ones. Thanks

    With led's you want to use the same color for the lens you are putting them behind. I just installed some in my reverse lamps (2012 F350) but had to notch the metal to make it work (don't like doing body modifications but had no choice after drilling the holes). They turned out ok and you can't see the notches as the taillight hides them.

    Those kits now have a steady burn override in them. Do you have an extra white white on your flasher? If you do you can use them where your factory bulbs are. Email me with questions if you are unsure.
