Yea, I've seen & played around with some led's that didn't look like they had much separation in the hi/low settings.
I've been doing some testing with these (while waiting on more bases) and I think I have a pretty good separation in brightness.
Here's a video (click the pic) I did with some 68 white led's in an 01 tail light... I didn't have the red 68 led's at the time, but they should be pretty close... just more vibrant red.
Yet another UPDATE:
Boys & Girls, I now have a very limited number of 120 white 3156 & 3157 led's.
I also have a handful of the 68 white 3156 led's.
Also, I have one pair completed (more in the works) of 68 red 3157 led's.
Finally, I have 2 pair (4 led's) of 3157 amber 42 led's. They aren't quite as bright as stock, but the color is much nicer.
68 white led's 3156 or 3157 (when available) = $16 a pair shipped in the USA
68 red led's 3157 = $20 a pair shipped USA
120 white led's 3156 or 3157 = $25 a pair shipped in the USA (I highly recommend insuring these for the additional $2)
42 amber/yellow 3157's = $18 a pair shipped in the USA
i see you got your amber leds ready. i might have to get a set when i purchase my new corners. do your brake leds blind people behind you?

NEW my white/yellow switchback led's in a clear 96 corner:
I can verify the quality of these folks! Bump for a great guy.
The 13 LED 3157s are slightly brighter than the stock amber bulb. The overall appearance of them in a clear corner is amazing tho.
what would be the pricing on the switchbacks?
I'm not sure just yet, I only have the one pair of led's made up & only 2 pair of the adapters right now.
As soon as I have more of the switchback led's & the other parts, I'll have a better idea of what I have in them. I'm hoping to keep the led's & adapters less than the price of the "name brand" switchback led's that have the circuitry built in though.
well if you need a ginnea pig to try out the switchbacks, lemme know
could you do them in yellow unstead of the orange so it would match my badge lights
4th of July bump~~
BUMP... plus info update.
In most cases when using LED's (not just my led's, but led's in general) in your turn signal sockets, you may experience the dreaded hyper-flash. This happens because of the much lower resistance of the LED's as compared with the incandescent bulbs.
The quick & easy remedy for this as well as for other LED or turn signal related issues is to upgrade the stock flasher to an EP-27 Electronic Flasher.
They should work with 95+ rangers and only take a few minutes to install. Simply locate the stock flasher under the dash or in the side panels depending on your truck, unplug the old flasher & plug in the EP-27 flasher. Finished.
Newer rangers will use a different flasher relay... I forget the number at the moment, but it's NOT the ep27.
They can be found online (evilBay) or at most auto parts stores for $12 - $16 and they all have basically the same internal components. I can't say that the expensive ones work better than the cheap ones, but I got mine on evilBay from a guy who bought the wrong one for his vehicle, it came from NAPA. I do know of a few other forum members who have got them from various evilBay sellers & have had no issues.
If I had OEM backup lights I would go this route.
They look very bright.
Buggman, where do you find the time.
Good news, Bad news...
I'm still doing these super cool & extra bright led's
I'm going to have to go up on the pricing a little due to the increase in parts
New Pricing for my White 68, 102 & 120 3156/3157 led's:
68 white 3156/3157's $18 a pair
102 white 3156/3157's $22 a pair
120 white 3156/3157's $27 a pair shipped/insured
I still have some amber & red led's in the works, just need to find time to get to them.
