LED Replacement S/T/T and Marker Lights

Hi,

I have a 2015 Primetime Avenger 26BH, and I'm less than impressed with the brightness of the stop/tail/turn lamps and clearance markers. Looking at the design of the fixtures i think that it is a problem with the way they are built more than anything (for example the 912 bulbs are recessed in the fixture as opposed to being laid sideways as in most fixtures, and the backing being black as opposed to a reflective material to help fill the reflective material on the outer lens) and was wondering if anyone has tried replacing the stock incandescent bulbs with LEDs, or adding some sort of reflective material to the back of the housing and if so what the results were. Thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you!

I replaced mine all with 13 led marker lights.

Where did you buy the new lights? I was thinking about doing this.

I bought them for 5 or 6 a piece I believe.
I can still get that price if you want.

Thanks, TurDs. I'll check them out and may likely plan for these as a spring job.
