Low beam headlights use 25watt just fine. the 50 watt are more for high beams. For a blinker i would get the 25watt and they should be fine. you will need one per bulb.

Call me lazy, but I just put in an electronic flasher unit. (EP-27). It is not load dependent like the stock ones are so I get a nice steady flash rate.

Something to consider.

When you say better what do you mean? sorry i honestly dont understand what they actually do... i know they trick the truck into thininking its a real bulb, but do they actually take taht power like will the truck shoot 25watts to the resistor?

the 50s are cheaper but if they might make it still flash or something then ill get the 25s just kinnda wondering what it is.

Thanks
