Pretty sure these Lasfit LEDs will work great, plug and play and no flashing. I've installed pretty much their full package aside from the turn signal lights. These are expensive so I figured I'd stick with the halogens for now.

Thanks, I bookmarked their page.
When I ordered from eTrailer the bulbs showed "In Stock". The following days is when I found out they were not in stock. I've been told next week.....next week...next week, since I ordered them.

They either shipped today, or will ship tomorrow. I got a call from etrailer needing updated payment info since it has been over 30 days. But with the hurricane hanging around the shipping may be delayed as it gets closer.

By the time they are ready to ship you will need to worry about a blizzard delaying them again.

They're coming from Wentzville Missouri. I hope they can get far enough south quick enough to avoid snowfall. BUT, it is 2020.

I finally got the bulbs today. I put the rear left in it first, hit the turn signal and got 5 good flashes out em and away they went hyper flashing. I didn't bother putting the fronts in. I assume if it flashes with one set in then the other won't make a difference.

Says "Hyper Flash Prevention", but also like the "In Stock" on the website, they lied.
After waiting a month and a half for these and they not working, I'm exhausted over light bulbs. I will keep the white ones for the back up lights.

Well...so much for those then. They don't look to be correct for a proper reflector retrofit anyway. Modern LED bulbs try and mimic the location and size of the halogen filament they are replacing so that the light source emits from the same spot and is then correctly reflected by the parabolic lens in the reflector outwards. Those you you have pictured don't do that at all and there is a bunch of wasted light that just bounces around and not out toward where it needs to be.

Bummer. It really seems like someone could come up with a "plug and play" solution... It really can't be that hard. I would think that the first one to do so effectively would sell a lot of product. At least until everyone else jumped on the bandwagon.

I know I have five (FIVE!) vehicles for which I could use that product.

Yeah, if I had the brains and means I'd start development on something. The resistor size is probably the issue. But they coulda shorted these bulbs a few LEDs to get them closer to normal brightness. Cause these bulbs are bright. But I guess with less LEDs the more resistance you gotta pick up slack on. I wonder if an inline whole harness resistor could be made? Again though, brains and means, 2 things I'm short on.
