The illuminator/equalizer product from Badlands is, in effect, an electronic flasher. It just plugs inline instead of plugging in the flasher socket. It is a solid state device that detects current in the circuit and manages the flashing. It doesn't load the circuit in any way through resistance. That's why it is preferred. It generates no heat, doesn't burn out and doesn't limit use of the flashers and/or hazards in any way.
And to the OP:
If you decide to swap out the whole rear end, there is a nice little dual intensity cluster you can get for the fender tip. It plugs into the taillight housing and, when used with a run/stop/turn rig, you get four lights with brighter intensity when the brakes are applied. It's very cool.
