, yeah led's need resistors on them. Maybe just research it a bit more man. I've just converted all my courtesy lights to LED, and its sweet as.

Did you make up the LED conversions by yourself, or buy ready made led bulbs?

I'd say these ready made leds you have just suck.

Have a geeze at this, it shows how to convert to leds.
