Lightbulb Led reverse and license plate lights

Alot of the users here are looking for a kit that contains the needed LED bulbs and load resistors to allow us to run LED Reverse and License Plates lights. Is there anyway that you could develop a kit. I am sure you'll have alot of buyers. Just look at the lengths of the threads that are on here talking about this.

We've had a Cherokee in the studio previously for testing. Unfortunately, due to heat generated by electrical resistance, you can't integrate resistors on the base of an LED bulb.

As LED technology continues to improve and become more efficient, that may not be an issue, but for the time being, we don't have the ability to develop an LED with enough integrated resistance to prevent hyperflash or bulb out warnings.

I was just asking a light company about this today actually. I wanted to switch our my halogen front blinker bulbs for LEDs one, but not at the expense of filling my entire engine compartment with wire harnesses. I really like the performance and look of LEDs, but I have to draw the line somewhere. I was floored by the amount of resistors, wire harnesses, and relays etc on the HID headlight kit and fog lamp replacement. I wish I could just replace my interior cab light with an LED bulb and not have my TH go bonkers on me.

I found some inexpensive bulbs called GP Thunder. Did my entire interior in them including my vanity mirrors. No bulb out warnings. Been in appx 1 month with no issues. Just FYI

Interior locations rarely have CanBus related issues, even the most finicky German vehicles.

The exterior is a different story, you'll need quite a lot of resistance on reverse lights, license plate lights, and other exterior locations to prevent warnings.
