got some led's

yep. had a couple roof markers out and i had decided, ya know what, i'm just gonna start going led all over the place because well, i have 18 lights that operate on the running light circuit. that would be nice to limit the amount of power pulled
so the roofs are now amber led's which i wasn't exactly happy with cause they kinda direct the light up instead of all around and up but it makes it a real cool dark orange.
but i was wondering if maybe some of you guys who run led's have maybe some different lenses to make the light better or (i've heard you have to do this) if anyone needed to run a load equalizer

sorry for it so long. just wondering

one more hint...get the same color light as the color of the lens..in other words..the stock cab ID lights are amber..use a amber LED...use a red LED for the tail lights...

i got mine at auto zone
i like the guys, but sometimes they just don'e have what i need. oh well. it was just trial and error with these lights. next time i'll know
i figure i'll just stick these led's that i got on the cab on the travel trailer and that way all the light will point the right way, forward and sideways
