    i replace my old bulbs in a 1982 International dump truck i am fixing/restoring and am very happy with how bright they are,,,,,i am especially happy with my dash light replacements. in 1982 the factory bulbs probably weren't very bright to begin with

    I was comsidering the (LED 360° Premium Replacement Bulbs or the Putco Nova LED bulds) for my roof clearence lights. From what is listed on their website I don't see replacement bulbs for the mirrors or cargo. I want to change these 3 areas out and then modify the wiring and install a flasher. My goal is to have normal factory operation and then operate them via a switch to flash.

    Hi, I know those Led bulbs, their are bright, but not that bright you think, if you use as a conventional bulb for a long time tend to burn faster due to poor heat dissipation.

    Maybe with a flasher you will get a better life time...

    What bulb sizes are you looking for? Superbrightleds.com and ddmtuning.com have leds. I am thinking about getting led for the signals and cargo with a flasher.
