    Good evening agents,
    What’s the brightest 4 inch led you can’t get
    I would like to swap out the ones I have in the back of my sleeper. Also what are the brightest 3/4 lights.
    Also where can I buy them at?

    I'd go with a name brand like a Grote, stay away from the cheap Chinese crap from Amazon.

    Clear lense with red led seem a touch brighter. Also use a stop, tail, turn and wire it up to the bright side

    Yep, Grote are about as good as you can get IMO.

    Just remember if they are too bright, some cop can write a violation for it.

    I like Grote 54492 red 4" round LED's. They only have 3 diodes and look like the old incandescent type taillights until they light up then there's no doubt they are LED.

    Honestly I do not see what the big deal is about having LEDs. Frankly I'm getting sick of being blinded 10x a night.
    I have LEDs on my brights, just so I can punish the people riding LED bars all night and day. But I got halogens for the dims. Really there is no need to have such brightness and it is inconsiderate to other drivers. I'm not one for regulations but I'm starting to think it's necessary since people just keep installing brighter and brighter and I do not doubt it is shortening my driving career long term.

    Really, what is the big deal with having LEDs top bottom and center on your rig?

    With the recent pandemic of ####tards that don't dim their lights while following I am putting rear facing LED lights on all my vehicles.

    I've got a big light bar plus flood lights on the back of my trailer on a switch in the cab. I definitely put them to use when someone is riding my butt of has high beams on. Brings me much joy
