Love the switchbacks! Are they LED’s? Pardon if that’s a stupid question, but I’m not sure if switchbacks are exclusively LED or not (or vice versa).

Yes, these are LEDs. However, because they are LED bulbs working in a system designed for OEM halogen bulbs, they cause a hyper flash situation where the turn signals now flash at a higher rate. While this does not cause a problem, it is different from the normal flash rate. To resolve the hyperflash, I have already acquired some quality resistor devices to splice into the turn signal wiring for each LED bulb. The resistors will restore the proper flow of electricity into the turn signal wiring so the turn signals flash at the normal rate.

Hope that wasn’t TMI ;-)
