Default Running Lights

Just installed some running lights on my sammy. I only did it to be move visible,since its already a small car its tough to see. These are the camaro led on the outside type I purchased from ebay. They say they fit the samurai but they don't. There has to be a slight modification and one of the three screws needs to be replaced with a longer one so don't think its a plug and play deal. Here is the picture of ONLY the running lights on. I will post a pic of how they look during the day. Overall I'm satisfied with the look and fuctionability.

Thanks, those do look sharp!
How would you say they perform as opposed to regular halogen sealed beams?
My kid has a similar set on his Forsa and they seem to scatter the beam everywhere except front and center, LOL.

I agree, The scatter the beam and do not send the beam right in front of the driver like the old style. I like this better than the old ones because I can see around me not just in the center. They are a lot brighter and a lot sharper. The beam looks blue and so does the bulb but when you turn them on they look white. I will post pics of how they look during the day..they are bright.

Yeah, those are very much like the one on my kid's Forsa (except they're the rectangular kind).
I hope your LEDs last longer than these, though.
Some of these started to randomly flicker and/or burn out after only about a month.
When they do, they stick out like a lost tooth!
I ended up ordering a 100 pack of super bright white LEDs on eBay and replaced them all.
I first went the lazy route and just swapped out the bad ones, but they were very much brighter and whiter than stock (stock were bluish white), so they stood out in the opposite way.
So I desoldered all the old ones (noting their polarity beforehand, as they will not turn on if installed backwards) and soldered in all new ones.
It's been over a year now, they look great and thankfully, no further burnout issues.
Oh, and another tip, the reflective coating on the inside of the housings is super-thin and delicate.
Do not touch, rub or polish it in any way, as it will come off almost as easy as dry-erase marker on a whiteboard!
