Default Changing to LED's

Im planning on changing my turn signals to LED's on my 2008 Jackpot and i just had a few questions.

what do you need to do if you change just the rears to LED's? anything?

and if I change the fronts and backs to LED's what exactly will i need to do?

where exactlly does the Load Equalizer get tapped in?

thanks,
Robb

Anybody?


When you change to LED's front and back what happens if you don't install the load equalizer? The signals just blink fast? I installed rear LED signals (im waiting on the fronts to get here) and they are blinking fast, but I kinda like it. Its more noticeable. And you only need one load equalizer right? That's on the way also.

Thanks,
Robb

I installed LED's all the way around with no resistor. They blink faster but I think it's more noticable. I tell people it's an aftermarket rapid-flasher for added safety.

Thanks. How long have you had it like that? Do you think there would be any long term issues with the ACM?

I think your wrong with the fast flash being good.
Turn the blinker on and walk a half a block away and see what you think. Then do a normal blinker and see that normal is better. It shows up more.

it blink a little less than twice the speed. plus being a bright LED it appears to have great visibility at a distance.

I don't think there would be any long term issues. There is actually less current flowing through the ACM and harness.
