6 volt LED Replacement Bulbs

They now have 6 volt LED single eliment and duel eliment stop/tail light bulbs and also the smaller base instrament type bulbs on the market which will replace the standard filiment type bulbs...the 6volt LEDs are as bright as the 12 volt LEDs both of which are brighter then the 12 volt filiment type and draw about 8 times less amperage...Anyway, I spoke
briefly with a vendor at the Monroe Swap meet this weekend (www.flipflopled.com)he said that the 6 and 12 volt LED bulbs have off-set pins on the sides like the 1157 filiment type, most 6 volts have their pins streight across from each other so you would need the offset socket or I have on occasion groung off the pin that was out of alignment...The bulb dimentions and piticulars are in his website, be sure and read (more information)as there are some do's and dont's...Anyway, just wondering if anyone has looked into the LEDs or have tryed using them...Bill
