    Check out the links the other members here have posted. One thing I do recommend is that if you're planning on using the LEDs for functional turn signals use either Osram or Cree. The Osrams are a bit more delicate as they're generally not water resistance, but since the housing should be sealed you should be all right. The Crees are marginally better in light output but they're fully weatherproof.

    I've already got the Minis in a box, along with a pair of Matchboxs for my fogs Lol.
    As for output, my lightforces take care of that

    Sure, that would be sweet. They'd just be for a semifunctional accessory, mostly to be different than everyone else's.

    You do a lot of offroading at night or something? Damn brother, that'd light up your entire state. :) You better have a strong battery and alternator to be running that kind of wattage. :)

    I'm running an Optima redtop right now, will eventually run dual batteries with a Yellowtop, but I don't need it yet. LEDs and HIDs don't pull that much power.

    Not off-roading, but we're getting ready for 6 months of winter and have to watch out for moose
