Try searching for the" buy truck stuff" website. Also try innovativelight.com, and seasense.com. I am in the process of replacing mine with Maxxima leds all the way around. In my research I have found that fewer better diodes are better than alot of cheap diodes. The first website will explain this if you go to the learn more about led lights. Stay away from the american superlites, I hear they leak.

Well buck, if you're not willing to put the time into researching the lighting on your trailer I hope you are happy with what someone else comes up with for lighting on YOUR trailer. Just don't don't get get it, "I don't have time" then, *****, *****, *****.

I'm NOT beating on you buck, just seems like no one has the time to do the things they want to there boats or trailers and cannot convey to the mech./assembler what they want. Then they SCREEM AND YELL because it wasn't done the way "THEY" wanted or it was toooo much money. I spent $700.00 in lights and two days on my trailer, but I go to the extreme.

NO buck, I guess niether one of us can read the right emotions from behind the key keyboard. My interpretetion(sp) was that you wanted some cheap LED lights and didn't want to spend the time to do the research. My BAD, I apologize. If you have a late model truck, one thing you might want to think about is putting large clearance lights in the center on the rear of the trailer and then wiring them to the third brake light circuit so you have "BLINDING" brake lights at night.

Griff,
No, I don't have a job. I just hang out at CHIEF ENGINES all day.

Tonto,

Fair enough.

Money is not an issue to me when repairing something. Cutting corners does not pay in the long run IMO.

I'm just trying to find one certain style of clearance light that I currently have in LED to match the mounts on my trailer....that's all.

I have found everything else I need.

Buck

buck, I would go to a LARGE truck stop and see if they have something, checkout www.chromeshop75.com, that is the BIG truck stop at 75 and the turnpike here in Fl. If I can help you do not hesitate to call 770-363-2185 cell, I'm in S.Fl.
I put 35 LED lights on my trailer, including the third brake light trick, which gives me 7 LED brake lights on the drive guard, you DON'T want to be behind me at night.
