hey Don, for the most part, usually most led's running will not be too too bright. there are some brighter than others, but in the daytime, it's still rough to see them. i've tried a couple and haven't been happy, but at night, i like what i have. here's what i have for the running:
2 x 14.39. i found them a little bit brighter.
i also bought the 1157 for the brake. i believe same price. and free shipping or at least they were. they have other models for you to look at though
i did want to look at the plexi donut mod done here, but too complicated for me. custom dynamics sells the same thing though...
cant' find the mod link right now. if i do, i'll pm or email it to you brother.
dont know if this helps or not. others will chime in here...how ya doing?
