2 ?'s- LED replacments, Harley lights

I know Recon sells replacement bulbs, and complete light housings. But, lets just say their prices arent "competitive".

I used the Sylvania guide to find which bulbs I need. No issues there.

A quick Google search came up with a few sites. None of them seem to have a complete bulb selection. I would like to be able to order all of the bulbs from one place.

Does anyone sell a "package" for our trucks? That would be ideal! Bed cargo light/stop light, reverse lights, license plate, turn signals (with proper resistors). And then maybe do an interior kit as well?


2nd Question- Harley Headlights. Best place to buy them? I found lots of threads showing pictures, but not much about who to buy from. Are the eBay ones durable enough? Leak proof?


TIA

I am sure plenty or people have done some. Basically it is a bulb by bulb thing. If you go to Sylvania's website they will list every bulb for your vehicle, then it is just finding good LED replacements.

One reason this is not more popular is that many poor LED bulbs offer less light than the bulb they replace. people see them, they look goofy, and no one wants to the same thing.

I would like to replace my stock tails with all LED tails. The stock tails are not nearly bright enough IMHO.

For LEDs check:
Super Bright LEDs ? LED Lights, Bulbs, and Accessories
-OR-
V-LEDS.COM | LED Dome, Map, License Plate, Reverse, DRL, Turn Signal, Brake Lights

I have LED tails (ebay), Recon's 3rd BL, White 194 LEDs in my license plate lights, I have a 3 light Ident bar under the tailgate (usually seen on duallies), I have Amber 194 bulbs in my front side marker lights and Amber 3157 bulbs in my front turn signals. (the side markers and 3157s came from the same place so they color match) - When I added the tails, the flasher worked the same (I think they added load in the tails), but when I added the front 3157s I had the 'fast-flash' problem. What I did to solve that was to change to an Electronic Flasher (EP-27). It isn't load dependent. Works well.
