change to led light fixtures or just led bulbs on outside of bus?

is everyone changing the entire light fixtures or just putting in led bulbs?

would love to hear what others did, i definitely have enough projects on this so debating being lazy and changing the bulbs

all of my marker lights and tail running brake reverse lights were changed to LED fairly cheap.
look at partsam on amazon.
the front neadlights and turn signals have not been changed yet.
to change to LED bulbs you have to add a resiistor or something like that and by itself is like 60$ not counting the bulbs.
everything else was simple and straight forward.

Some of my lenses were cracked, so I got all new led turn signals and brake lights, and new incandescent reverse lights. I got them from tac bus parts. The leds are much brighter and they were about $30 each. I kept the incandescent turn signal on the side of the bus because it was still in good shape, but without it connected the flasher wouldnít flash. If you have all leds you have to replace the flasher as they donít draw enough power to make it work
