The most popular kit seems to be the one by WebElectrics. Here is a gif of the turn signal:

And here is a link to a movie from Roboz, showing the brake light sequence:

I personally do not like the brake light sequence. Maybe it's just me, but if I have to slam em down, I don't want the 0.5 sec it takes for the bonehead behind me to realize what all those flashy lights mean. You have to admit, during that one sequence, a driver behind you could misinterpret them as a hazard signal, or simply get distracted by a sight he isn't used to seeing. That half a second could mean the difference between him coming to a safe stop or riding up into your ass end. I would get them if they had a feature to disable the brake light sequence however, because they are pretty cool looking. :)

Yeah that is what they do. The turn signal effect by itself is pretty cool, but it's almost like the designers of that kit said, "oh lets see what all other lights we can make do weird ****". I think it's kind of going overboard at best and potentially unsafe at worst. I'm not sure of how any other kits operate.

It's not up to the makers of the kit if you want sequential tail lights, the brake lights (same circuit) will sequence also. However, they only sequence once then all stay on, unless you let off the brakes & start again.

I installed them on my '05 & they work great. I bought them off e-bay (using make an offer) they install easy. The one I bought also had a connection to make the inside light function as a dual element like the rest of the bulbs, so you get a 3 light sequence all the time. Ford already put in dual element bulbs, just not dual element socket. :thumbsup

<LI id=websterItem1>sequential
(adjective) 1 : of, relating to, or arranged in a sequence : SERIAL < sequential file systems>; 2 : following in sequence; 3 : relating to or based on a method of testing a statistical hypothesis that involves examination of a sequence of samples for each of which the decision is made to accept or reject the hypothesis or to continue sampling I don't think #3 applies to the taillights but it is an interesting concept. :winks

I have the webelectrics splice and dice kit installed. I can't speak for other manufacturers, but the webelectric kits include a feature to disable the single sequence when you hit the brakes. You will have to do some wiring up to the fuse panel though. Just a couple of wires to run. :yup:

You are considering buying seq tail lights and you don't even know what they do!!!!!!!! If i'm a pr!ck, you're a HEAD case.

"Daddy. What's a *****?" Now children!....No name calling you putzs. :heha:

I like the seq. light (I do know the definition) but only for the turn signals. I tend agree with the distraction brake light theory.
