I have them both front and rear and they're great. (I have converted to 12v) They're sized right to fit in the mil style housing, too. Looks "correct", IMHO. People following you might think they're bright, however. If you have a 12V conversion, you'll need an electric flasher, as the LED's won't pull the amperage load needed to make a bi-metallic flasher work. Or you can just leave a regular bulb in series with the LED, but that sorta defeats the purpose of the low current draw LED light.

The army has a Mil led composite light. They look like the "new" style composite, but are half the thickness. A friend of mine put them on a 1/4 ton trailer he was pulling with a tj. The good thing about them is that they work 12-48V. But they are expensive to buy. I would like to find 24V hallogine bulbs to put in my composite turn and tails now that would give some bright!

The military also has a heavy aluminum light housing that looks like our composite ones that houses and led system. I pulled a set off of my M1?? deuce trailer when I rewired it. Should be 24 Volt.
