I would like purchase some six volt negative ground L.E.D. red and amber two inch diameter lights that are brighter than the truck clearance lights that I am using now. Does anyone know of a source for these. Brad.

Maybe some information from this older post?

There was a thread awhile back wherein the complaint was the "then available" L.E.D. lights were VERY directional - (but you already know that) - and unless mounted in a forward facing (or rear facing for taillights) the visibility was not that great. Rumor was that some firm was developing an omnidirectional LED - perhaps another reader will have discovered that source.

Good Luck !

(Incidentally, Harbor Freight has a slick 2+ inch rubber surrounded waterproof trailer light that fits nicely inside the lanterns on my '15. Took out the burner for a better fit, but did nothing to destroy the parts and the burner can be replaced by the next owner. Then again, I'm running a 12 volt battery with a "Regan" magneto battery charger)

Brad,

Maybe use this and open up your LED options:

Mike's A-Fordable Model A sells a set that works on 6 or 12v, neg or pos earth. Not saying the lights would suit your purpose but wonder if any of our tech whizz kids can explain how they work. All other suppliers tell me their lights are only one voltage or polarity.

I have 6v LEDs on my Model A that fit right inside the standard A tail light drum and work very well, even in the daylight. Got them from Brattons
