I'm ordering 10 LEDs for my step/courtesy lights and high mount stop light, these are the packs of 10 I'm looking at. Anyone try them yet and if there's a better way to go let me know.

I used the first ones with the 5 LED's that are on the top and sides, not just on the top, they spread the light out better in the reflectors, I'm afraid the ones with them only on top you will lose most of the light, and you'll have hot spots in the doors.

I used the equivalent of those EC9s posted (in hyper white). They throw light in all directions, and aren't too long to fit in the gauge cluster. In my '98, they WERE too long to fit in the license plate light assembly, but they fit everywhere else.

Ya I was thinking the same thing. I think I'll order the 5 LEDs like you say. Thanks!

If anyone is interested in a different option I put these in my doors, they are 1.5 watt single led lights. They put out good light but they won't fit in the license plate housing.

I'm considering replacing the reverse lights on my '99 scab. Would I have to put a relay in just like the turn signals? Or would it just pop in like a normal bulb?

Not for reverse, the resistors are only for lights that flash.
