Would recommended Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene or you may be doing the repair again before long.

UHMW is an impact-, chemical-, and moisture-resistant plastic with a low-friction surface and more rigidity than other polyethylenes

Changed my taillights on my Roo from incandescent to LEDs. Really easy. I now have an extra set of bases and lenses. Probably just keep the lenses. I wish FR and Roo would do this from the Factory. What, a few bucks more for the LEDs.

OK, it's official. I hate this forum because it has cost me so much money!

So I have to know, why are people changing all the marker lights and taillights out with LEDs?

What kind of "have it" is this mod?

Got to have it?
Want to have it?
Need to have it?
Should have it?
.........?

I would agree LED tail lights are needed. In fact the last trip we were on I was thinking of putting a high mount centre brake light like cars have. This would be seen by gravel truck tailgating.

Installed my Shoe Caddy onto the door. I'm mostly happy with it- there was a minor miss in communication over measurements between the maker and I. Neither of us is to blame, so it is a little oversized. But, ultimately, I think I'll really like it. It should clean up our entry way a lot.

To me, it is a few things. One, LEDs seem to be more durable, especially quality ones. Second, they come in faster and usually brighter. Third, less stress on my little TV electrical system. Fourth, I travel a lot at night going to coaster club events. And fifth, I just love LEDs.
