I'm thrilled with my new 7" LED tail lights
for my Scamp
13. They are an exact size replacement for the original wedding-cake 7" round lights
. They are Doran 7" school bus LED stop, turn, tail lights
. The photo is the right side mounted on the Scamp
. I had to drill new mounting holes and installed with 1" 8X32 stainless steel machine screws with a washer and nut on the inside. Of course I had to remove the benches to get to the wiring and mount the lights
. On the left side I was able to mount the license
plate bracket on the lower mounting screw. I still need to find a LED license
, but I wanted to wait and see how these mounted before I purchased one.
The back side has a closed-cell foam gasket, three wires soldered to the circuit board (including ground), and the circuit board is fully encased in plastic or resin of some sort.
I know some LED tail lights
require an electronic flasher rather than the stock thermal flasher, but my Explorer has the factory towing package and separate fuses and wiring for the tail lights
and they worked fine with no modification to the flasher.
They were a little more than I would have liked to have spent, but I am pleased with how the look and work.
I have also redone the side lights with LED fixtures and will soon replace the 12V interior and porch lights with LED bulb replacements..
