Does the Roadmaster Falcon 2 and Falcon All-Terrain Towing Kit Come With Diodes Included


I would like to get the kit part mentioned in the subject however I’m a bit confused on the description vs the photos of what is included. The description outlines diodes and is what I’m looking for but the pictures show light bulbs

The diodes that are included in the Roadmaster # RM-9243-1 are not LED light diodes, but are diodes installed on the electrical system put in place to help protect the tow vehicle from any potential shorts or power surges that could damage it while towing. This Roadmaster # RM-9243-1 does utilize bulb and socket lighting, which are the bulbs you're seeing and will be installed into your tail light housing.

With that said, you might actually be better off using the Roadmaster Smart Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Wiring Kit for Variable Voltage Incandescent Tail Lights # RM26FR which comes with smart diodes that ensure that your variable voltage, incandescent tail lights function as they should while your car's being towed and help prevent electrical feedback. This won't require cutting into the tail light housing to install any bulbs and connects directly to the electrical of the Spark for an easier installation.

I've linked some review and installation videos of these parts for you to check out.
