    That ought to get their attention.

    Sometimes I worry about myself. BAKRD - It took me 3 minutes to figure it out Back Road.

    :bash It's OK I feel better now

    Yes indeed, please do! I would like to see before and after pics, and pics of the LEDs you put in there. I am going to do a write up on auxilary signal lighting like this for my website and I would like to incorporate other people's ideas and implementations too.

    FWIW,

    Um - I am not sure he did; I thought so too at first as that bright light behind the reflector was the first thing to catch my eye. But look at the pics again right now, I just noticed a bar of LEDs below the tail-light and just above the license plate.

    Ah yes, as usual, you are correct Lauren. I guess I was thinking that it was a dual filament bulb like on the GS, instead of a separate brakelight. Just verified on my RT. So...in my best Emily Latella voice, "nevermind". :thwak

    Is the LED light from the Ford pickup red ? If it's the cargo hi light one would think it's white...

    Gonna have a look at my local scrap yard for sure...
