Flasher block w/ LED\'s

Here's the story I finally hunkered down and made my first modifications to the body of my TJ that the trail didn't do for me. I flush mounted 4inch round LED tail lights in the rear. I did it for three reasons #1 I came deathly close to breaking one apart a few weeks ago when I backed into a tree to try and adjust my line #2 I think they look really cool and will look even better once I cut my flat fenders(thanks for the links LEVE very helpful [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]) #3 [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I'm too oor (that's actually poor but I currently can't afford the "P") to do anything else. So back to my issue I measured, drew a template measured again and cut, grinded and shaped wired everything in and they look great!!! Problem due to the LED lights having less resistance and using less power when I turn on my signal they flash so quickly I fear I may send the person behind me into an epileptic seziure [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]. I was told I should use a different flasher with this appliction but nobody seems to know a part number for a flasher block that will work on 97 TJ for this application. So anybody know what I need to get or do to solve my problem.

Re: Flasher block w/ LED\'s

you need an electronic flasher. you can get them at most Autoparts stores for less than $10.

Not for the TJ Matt, he needs to do exactly what was done on Stu's website, I did it to mine and my LED's flash fine, a wee bit faster than normal, but fine nonetheless.
