I built this truck from a 1951,53,54 Chevy and a 2011 Dodge Ram 6.7 Cummings diesel 3/4 ton 4x4 it has all the amenities including the ice chest in the rear floorboards like the newer trucks ,I welded two trucks together back to back so I could have suicide doors. I used a 54 chevy long bed . I welded the bed floor out of the 2011 bed and used the factory gooseneck so I could pull my 31' 5th Wheel trailer . It's also has the Jake Brake.3026.jpeg3027.jpeg3023.jpeg3029.jpeg

Did you have to install some sort of resistor to compensate for the LED HEADLAMPS so they don't interfere with electronics?
I'm not sure if you got my post mixed up with another. I have LED tail lights on one truck, I did have to use resisters to keep them from hyper blinking.

Good morning, as far as can remember, yes you'll need to install one on each blinker light. I remember having to do this on motorcycles converting them to run LED's. the other options are pulling the flasher and going with an electronic style flasher.

I was wondering if I need to do the same thing ,do you install them in line for each ight?
Just one for each side, I assume this is correct but I only have LED's on the back.

I tried a couple of those and didn't have any luck, they may have had factory defects? So I went with the resistors

Some of the newer aftermarket replacement LED marker/stop/blinker lights have a resistor built into them to be compatible with the newer data-link type wiring used by some manufacturers.
