    I installed that LED diode dynamics switchback turn signals. These give you an upgraded turn signal and DRL cool LED light.

    I wanted a LED DRL but didn’t want to order lariat headlamps

    Easy install and I like the look

    The result looks good, I guess they just switch whenever you put your turn signal on?
    Reallly hate that they supply Quick-splices (Vampire Taps). Its just not a proper way to do automotive wiring.

    Just tap the resistor to the positive & negative blinker wires. Headlight wiring PDF attached

    Yeah, it just switches when you signal. I wish it was a plug and play resistor

    It comes with instructions, you just tap the yellow and green wires to the red resistor cables

    Yellow is turn
    Green is ground

    Anyone with a Lariat...let us know if you’ve done this :idea:with the front turn signals and with a resistor. Thanx!

    One note, the resistors fix the hyper blink but the blinker sound inside is sped up, might be a software fix.

    Hmm, that's disappointing. I'm thinking of getting LED turns (not the switchbacks), but it's disconcerting that the blinker sound is still sped up. Has that been annoying, or is it just the new normal now and you've gotten used to it?

    Is there any FORSCAN options to fix this? I know on the current gen F-150, you can change a few parameters to stop hyper blinking without the need for resistors.

    There is. I have a Lariat and switched all my lights out to LEDs. Used Forscan to get rid of the hyperblink, no resistor was needed. There's a thread here: https://www.ranger5g.com/forum/threads/forscan-crowdsourced-wiki.2008/
