Thanks for the information once more, i ordered some 15W 5630 18 smd, appear to be very good. How did you hook up your other back-up lights? Just spliced into reverse or an additional switch?

Also one more question, yesterday i crawled under my dash to locate the flasher relay, and i did not see it; however, i found a white box where it might be, would it be inside of it? :

They're on their own switch and a fuse so I can use them even with the truck out of reverse. I'm not sure where the relay is though, haven't ever looked for mine

Not bad, and really? I thought that you used the led flasher relay instead of load resistors

I haven't done LED signals yet, but when I do I'll be doing the relay since its the safer option.

So i bought that relay from ebay (posted the link earlier) and it works! Installation was a pain, but i didn't take any dash pieces off, i could crawl under and it was located closer to the head unit it had black cover (2 tabs on each side) but as everyone else had posted turn on your blinkers and you will hear it ticking. My only concern is now my blinkers are going off about 1/4 of a second slower than they were before, is it normal? This is the bulb i got for the rear blinkers:

I put some in my buddy's truck. I'd recommend them over plug and play HID's
