Started LED conversion

With thanks to Josef15111, I bought and installed LED lights to replace the incandescent factory rear brake/turn signal bulbs. What a difference!! It just doesn't make sense to have a cool LED ribbon for the rear tail lights and still have incandescent lights for the brakes and turn signals. Even the Limited trim has incandescents. As someone else mentioned, this is 2018!!

Also, per Joe's recommendations, I've ordered the amber LED turn signal bulbs for the front. Will tackle swapping out the fogs a little later. When done, we can turn the headlight switch to the "parking lights" setting (12 o'clock on the dial) with the fog lights on and have LEDs working throughout both the front and rear.

Not sure if/when I'll do the headlights.

Yes, our rear brake/turn signal LEDs look like dstruktNine's video. Hopefully the fronts will look like the video of his front lights, as well. They should be arriving any day now. The ribbon LED under the headlights are brighter on his Limited than they are on other trims, including our Touring L Plus.

I just started this as well based off of Josef15111's suggestions and guide. Got the side markers and brake lights / turn signals done last night. The backup lights and front turn signals should be coming soon. Overall I'm really happy with the results

No. If you buy CAN-bus LEDs, then you don't need to
