Having a problem with my rear marker lamps that are mounted on the back of the dump bed.  Seems as though I replace them and they only last about two weeks before they go out again.

Using standard type bulbs - but was wondering if LED lights hold up better to vibration.  I think they are blowing out due to the slamming of the tailgate.  Anybody else have a situation like this.

Don't believe it is a wiring issue as the other marker lamps at the front of the bed continue to work - and they are all fed off the same power source.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

LED's do hold up better

Are the lites you have now well sealed so moisture doesn't get in?

LED's are more expensive, but can last a looooong time

My 2011 granite still has all but one factory original LED lamp. A marker light on the fender lost half the diodes a few years back. It was replaced on warranty (lifetime) and that's been it.  

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part....

my 2 cents-Are the lights in a grommet or solid mount to the bed?  If solid mount probably the banging if in a grommet I would say it was something else as the grommet would protect it from the jarring and shock.
