Cadallic ? a lot of US vans run 2 on each side, but that single one looks good

Ben, Led lights do look good & modern, & I have bought several LED light sets from Ebay. Sometimes disappointed at how bright they were.

One thing to look at with Led's, I have found, is the type of bulb they use & whether the casing is polycarbonate or plastic.

The size of the bulb is not always an indication of brightness either. ( Yeah, Yeah, I know, they are at the back, so Im not looking at them when they are on.)

Here's an example I found on Ebay looking like your intended purchase. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/2-X-LED-TAIL-LIGHTS-TRUCK-UTE-TRAILER-STOP-INDICATOR-12-Volt-PAIR-WATERPROOF-NEW-/121356922719?tfrom=131185969720&tpos=top&ttype=price&talgo=undefined.  ( just an example of round ones... not a recommendation....Doesnt mean they are no good either OK.. Just a look.)

So make sure you can get a return if you get ones off Ebay.
