DIY: LED Brake Lights

I just upgraded the stock brake lights to LED. I LOVE the new look! I know that not everyone agrees, but if you like it and have been thinking about it, it's VERY easy.

I really wish they sold those here in the UK, I'd snap a set up, but it's the import charges that kills it for me. They look beautiful.

Oh I didnít realize that. Figured there would be a bunch from China that would ship. Extra for coronavirus free ones, of course

I think they look awesome! What was the $$ expense, if you don't mind my asking?

Have you considered the headlights... you know, the newer look with the 4-square LED setup? That would look clean.

Great looking dog!

I'm not comforted that on the box Taiwan incorectly was spelled.

Keep the vids coming! Thanks!

Thanks! There were about $630 from eBay. I put the link in the description. They don't sell these exact ones on Amazon, but I put a link to a cheaper option via Amazon there as well (under $300).

About the lights... waiting on Fred's lights and I'll be doing another video on that!

Youíre welcome! Iím just sticking with stock headlights for now, but I may do something similar to the ones you linked there eventually. I havenít heard any great reviews on them though.
