I had a stop/turn signal go out due to water intrusion so I decided to do new lights all around. I chose to swap them all out with LEDs.
Here are a few pictures. Job can be done in about 1-1.5hr with the most time consuming being the clearance light bar underneath.

Standard bulb side/clearance lights were sent so I have to get those swapped out later.

The only concern I have is that the LED gaskets seem to fit a little more loose, so I might put a couple dabs of silicon on them.

The pictures don't do them justice on how clear and bright they are compared to the stock/standard lights.

Where did you get the lights? Reasonably priced?

I got them from my dealer. The only thing I forgot was the 2 round lamps near the hook-up / actuator. I'm guessing my price will rise a bit when I get the 4 red clearance lights swapped out for the LED versions, but my dealer was VERY reasonable...AND he sent me a 40th coffee table book! :cool:

Did the LED lights have the same plug connection or did you have to cut into the harness and install a different plug?

Did LED's on my trailer a few weeks ago for $109.00 and wow, what a great additiom. Can see them form 200 yards in the daylight. I am very pleased with the change.

The ones I got from the dealer had the same plug connector and the grommets fit same cutouts in trailer.

$109...for all the lights? That's great! I paid a little more, but thought it was fair pricing...and supported my dealer in the end.

They are a neat addition. Brighter, nicer looking, and hopefully last a little longer.

I guess!?!? I actually asked for a couple of their (BOATWORKS) shirts (figured I'd do some advertising for them), but they were out and the book showed up in the box. Extremely nice gesture, I thought!

Go for it!
In addition to the cool looks, the project gave me; 1 blood blister, 2 splinters, ground-in dirty fingers, and a stiff neck (from having to be a contortionist for the center clearance light). :D

Looks great. LED's make a big difference for sure.

When I did new LED's in my '96, I went here (http://www.trailerandtruckparts.com/LED-Lights_c_23.html). They had good prices and were very helpful.
