    Default LED Lights

    Guys, I put a new Galion dump body on my '56 B61X. The truck is 12V. I want to replace the two rear tail/stop lights and the two rear turn signals with two new LED combo stop/tail/turn lights.

    some say there is an issue mixing LED's with conventional lighting.

    Any opinions?

    I want to do the same, whats the issue? I like led's, plus you can get more lights with much less voltage. I would have all LED's if JD had led headlights.

    I think the only issue is with LEDs and older trucks is thermal flashers. If your blinkers won't blink swap out the flasher for an electronic one and you will be good to go.

    They also make loads that simulate the current pull of a bulb to allow the old style flashers to work.

    This is right on the money. I've swapped out many incandescents for LEDs over the years.

    I'd like to see some pics of your B model !!
