Default LED lights in the stock light housings

Hello
i want to keep the stock light housings (4 on top, 2 in front) and put LEDs behind them.
i was going to pick up one of these kits to hold the lights, then drilling holes in the stock panels Amazon.com: RPM Roof Mount Light Bar Set, Chrome: SLH RPM80923: Toys & Games


my question is, what LED electronics should i buy? this would be for powering 6 white LEDs.

thanks!

I was going to use the axial simple light kit and just replace the 2 red leds with a couple of whites ones that I didn't use in another build. It just plugs into the receiver. I have a bunch of axial light buckets and lenses and was hoping that those would fit into the holes in the body. Guess we'll find out when I get mine (hopefully this week!!)

You can't run two separate sets of white lights on the simple controller, but you can cut and solder a set of 4 and a set of 2 and use the one plug. That leaves a plug for red. The white/clear lights and reds run on different voltages... Learned this with my Exo.

Good info. I did not know that. I have the pieces to do what you're talking about though.
