Anyone have thoughts/experience on this requirement?
"Make sure to add our TIPM Stabilizing Resistor if you own a TIPM-enabled vehicle! Most 2007 and newer Chryslers, Dodges, and Jeeps have a TIPM computer system and will require this resistor."
This is from the Opt-7 website (I cannot post links yet)
I am debating if I should install this resistor. The problem with this is: it gets so hot that you need to keep it away from plastic and/or any type of wiring. There's no place for it... maybe on the diagonal cross bars?
Only in the corner housings, not in the lift gateSo I've read all the pages in this thread - still have a couple of questions (sorry in advance if they've been answered and I didn't see them):
--Do the tail lights have bulbs associated with braking and/or turning in the lift gate area, or are these actions only happening in the edge housings (i.e., the outer, non-lift gate plastic light housings)?
I replaced all external light bulbs with LEDs. No hyperflashing. Chrysler chose to trigger the hypeflashing at a lower current. Low power bulbs may still cause hypeflash.--Has anyone found a metal area on which to affix resistors for the tail lights? I understand from various postings that people have been able to get by without using resistors, but that there is hyperflashing on the side mirror turn signals (for Limiteds like mine). Or maybe the hyperflashing has to do with amber LEDs installed on the front turn signals. I've always used resistors for each LED in previous vehicles, so I'm surprised that people aren't getting hyperflashing without them.
Resistors are not needed.--For front turn signals, are there metal locations for resistors?
it is easy, I posted it a how to a while ago. However replacing this bulb with a cold white LED will result in an unnatural skin color. I decided to leave this bulb as it is.--How easy is it to access and replace the vanity mirror bulbs with LEDs?
There are access panels on the lift gate. They need to be carefully pried out. I had a good experience with the bulbs similar to these: https://amzn.to/2PPMHkB--Reverse light replacement with LEDs should be pretty easy and not require resistors since they don't blink. Is there a tutorial on how to access the lift gate light assembly, or is it pretty obvious if I look at the access panels from inside? (I just took delivery of my 2018 Limited last week, so haven't had a chance to check yet.)

What about the hyperflashing I've read about in the side-mirror turn signal lamps? Does anyone with a Limited (I think that's the only trim that has mirror turn signals) have hyperflashing, and if so, did it trace to either the front or rear (or both!) turn signals as LED without resistors as the cause?
Glad to hear that there is no hyperflashing - even in the side-mirror turn signal indicators - on the 2018 Limiteds.I have a Limited. No hyperflashing. I myself was surprised that the van handled the aftermarket LEDs so well.
I see you're using the old-style LED bulbs a bunch of us tried way back.Just went full LED today on my 2018 Pacifica Touring L+
