I installed LED lighting but need a new flasher.

Has anyone seen a 5 pin flasher for our Ford trucks?? When going to LED lighting there is not enough resistance and the blinker "hyperflash", basically flash way to fast. I thought I seen flasher made for this purpose but havent seen them anywhere but ebay so far. Ebay was 49.95 for a flasher and I just wanted to check prices. Thanks guys.

Don't know about the flasher for our trucks, but the flashers with a 555 timer will cure the problem with using LEDs

Head to napa or autozone and purchase a Trico EP-27 flasher for about $13. It is exactly what you need.

If you need instructions on finding/replacing the stock one (it's tough to get to, easier once described) let me know.

Let me know how to do if you could. Any help would be appreciated.

No problem. I just remembered I shared this in another thread a week or so ago... here's my post from that thread:

Turn your ignition to RUN so you get power to the blinkers, and turn your blinker on... you can hear it clicking, and when you reach up in there, you'll be able to feel it. It's inside a little plastic box, and if you feel carefully you can feel the tabs to release the lid, then pull out the flasher (it's the taller of the two, and you can feel it clicking), and replace with the new one. It's a real tight fit and you're doing it blind, but it's really not tooo tough.
Also be sure to watch how you have the little box lid and the relay aligned when you pull them out, so that when you put the new one in and the lid back, you have them oriented properly to reinstall. Since you can't see what you're doing, that'll make it easier so you don't have to fiddle with them in there when putting them back.

How do the LED's look? How bright in day and night? Did you keep the stock lenses or change the lenses and change to LED's?

I saw the LED's the other night when i was buying a taillight. I didn't know if they were a direct swap or how they'd look inside the stock lenses.

I put new clear aftermarket len's on front and rear. The led's looks very cool, they are real bright white/blue in color and in Michigan you can have clear on the front turn signals so they are impressive. I have the silverstar headlights and they look near yellow compared to them so I am resolving that too. Maybe I can get a few pics to put on soon. My truck is an 01 so the look is way different than stock, I have a few photos in my gallery but only shots of the lights installed not of the lights on at dark.

Looks great. Are those clear lights from ebay? How much light do they put out compared to the stockers and do they focus it well?

I bought some clears for my old 94 F150 and they sucked. My 01 with the stock stuff has better light output/focus
