Just replaced the old incandecent tail lights with the same style and size as the originals. These new LED lights are made by Command Electronics like the old ones so the job was quick and all the holes lined up. It is amazing how much brighter and quicker LED lights are!! I went to Command Electronic's web site and although I could have purchased an upgrade kit to convert just the bulb and lens I electred to replace the entire light because on my 06 CF29CK Crossroads Cruiser I was concerned about the condition of the plastic tabs that hold on the lens. I would recommend this modification to anyone. Lane changes and sudden stops would be easier to noticeby the rude tailgating motorist that follow us down the highway.

I did this mod, it was worth it. I went through 2 sets of bulbs in one trip with the old system. Edited by: dja29RK

I believe this is the link to the site for the LED upgrade. The LEDs will also reduce the electrical load on the TV.

I just switched over to the LED taillights. I did the complete light assembly. They are a very nice light!!!
Also ordered one of their interior LEDs, item #K-900UPG. I couldn't believe the lumuns they were claiming for this light so I had to try one. Now I wish I hadn't already purchased so many. That is one heck of a light!! If anybody is thinking of switching out your lights to LEDs, I suggest you try one of these first. It's probably the closest there is to an incandescent bulb for the quality of light it puts out. It's not cheap tho.
rcflyer has the link on his post.

Just got my kit today. About 15 minutes to install. I didn't use the "Scotchlok" type connectors supplied. I used sealed crimp splices.



Cost was $42.00 if I remember correctly.



Those babies are BRIGHT!!!!

I also did mine but instead of the supplied wire clips, I used a soldering gun and heat shrink tubing. They are bright. I hope folks following me like them as much as I do.

I had the same bulb problem on the side without the plate. The water was going in the lens and hitting the hot bulb and the bulb would break. I made a plate to go over the bulb just like the one on the license plate bulb and it worked, if you don't want to upgrade, which I did.
