i just bought a set of fullsizexj taillight boxes w/o lights in em so i can set em up with LEDs. i got both the red stop signal and the amber turn signal. but simply cant find a white LED the same size as the amber to use, similar to what farmboy designs used to use in theirs before they were discontinued.

theyre 2.5 wide and 1.25 tall, pretty standardized size with other lights of the same nature.

that could very well be it, and if it is, you are a god haha, its Definitely the right size

do you think 4 LEDs in it is enough for a relatively bright reverse lights? seems low to me but im a pretty big n00b in LEDs

I sold Grote band lights for the reverse, but the trucklites are the same idea. The pig tail is different...

You can order Grote lights through your local auto parts store, just find the part# on grotes site, and have them cross refrence it.
