    Front led tur signals ??

    I was wondering what led lights are you guys running for the front turn signals? I know Lmc/Brothers ect make rear tail lamps but don't you need to run front as well?

    I have been searching for the same thing, and even though Iím not too computer literate, search on eBay for ďFlat Mount LED Taillights C39A - 3Ē. Iím probably going to order these and if they donít fit, harvest the inner LED Ďbulbsí and see if they fit in our stock housings.

    Sorry, I made an assumption that this post was for 1st gen VCVs. Thatís what I was mentioning in my post since Iím looking for LED replacements for those turn signals.

    I have a first gen and used these light bulbs I found on Amazon.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1.

    With these in the front, and LEDs in the rear as well, my lights all worked fine. I did put a new 6 bulb flasher in as well.

    I'm not sure, but someone told me the LEDs can be voltage sensitive and you might need some sort modern electronics before the bulbs to facilitate the flashing.

    My van has turn lights mounted on the roof at the rear as it was originally a fire truck. I found if I put LEDs in those the signal lights did not work/flash. So I run incandecent in those and LEDs in all the stock lights.

    if anyone knows how to solve the roof light issue I'd be appreciative, and psyched!

    I used 2 electronic flashers, turn signals and 4 ways work fine, one problem ... when I turn off 4 ways the flasher continues to "click" , installed an on/off toggle , how often do you use 4 ways ? Think mechanical flashers work off heat , all LEDs no heat .Click image for larger version.
