    we are wanting to convert our bradford flatbed (truck) to LED lights...my first question is, is there anything special we have to do wiring wise to make this happen?

    there are (6) 6.5" brake/tail lights (red) which are oval/oblong in shape, (4) 6.5" reverse lights (clear) that are oval/oblong as well, and (4) 2" round (red) lights

    does the amount of diodes in each light mean anything as far as how many you can install?

    and where is a good place to order lights online, i can't find any locally especially for a decent price...

    get your lights at a heavy truck and trailer repair shop ,you will probably need new pigtails ,and you will need an electronic flasher in your tow vehicle or the lights will flash too quickly .You can add pretty much as many as you like,they use very little hydro .
