Question L.E.D. Tail, Marker and Parking lights....???

I am considering replacing my tail lights, marker lights, turn signals and parking lights with LED bulbs. My brother put these on his Wrangler and they really look nice. It is a very distinctive look that the LED's give off and I really like it. What I am wondering is if anyone has done this mod yet how did it turn out?

My primary concerns are these:

1. Do the turn signals still flash at the right speed?

2. Has it caused any "confusion" with the electronics (tail light out
indicators, etc.)?

3. Do chics dig it?

(1 of these 3 is not a technical question)

I know from reading the Sylvania web site that a standard 3057 bulb is 23-29 watts, the LED's that I am looking at are 24 watts so I really don't see how it could cause a problem. Still yet, better safe than sorry so I am asking the experts to step-up and give their advice.

Please let me know of any experiences that anyone has had. I really would appreciate it.

Thanks, Paul

1. You flasher should be more than adequate to push the LEDs.

2. Not if you do it right.

3. No. They really don't care. Even the ones who act like they do don't really care.
