UPDATE!

On my 3rd replacement set of the 13 SMD Amber LED bulbs.

They do honor their product but how many times can they keep replacing poorly designed LED Bulbs. The resistors are under sized.

I had one of my turn signal / DRL bulbs go out on me last week. So, it only lasted 4 months

I guess we won't find any that will last :(

I suppose they would be long lasting if we could find a quality manufacturer.

When I spoke with V-Leds, I said why not use higher quality parts and they said they would have to double or triple their price, they would never sell.
So the old saying is WYSIWYG!

I re-manufactured the 3rd set. I re-biased, changed all the resistors and added some transient suppression diodes. So I hope these last longer!

Are you talking for the front?

Check local laws regarding the use of red bulbs in front lights. Most states do not allow red bulbs in front with the exception of emergency/law enforcement vehicles.

One lead to the blue turn signal feed wire and one lead to the black ground wire of the harness from the truck.
