Justinr666 I didn't use a resistor, and really, yes it flashes quicker, but not to the point where its having a seizure. Imo I don't think you really need one...

Curious if anyone has used any of these:

Slammed_2.0 As far as buying a flasher unit to support LED is hard to find but I can say use the load resistor with a quick connect/t-splice to connect it.

I use LED switchback and use a quick connect. Easily able to remove the splice to go back to factory

Yeah I know you use the stock housing but I don't want to cut the wires to pit in the resister and the normal turn signal flasher is a thermal unit meaning when there is a load on it it will flash a but a led uses less current and the normal flasher don't flash cuz it uses less current but a led flasher has a computer chip on it and can make a led flash with rapid blinking. I am looking for a led flasher
