TCS 1343 LL8 8-Function 8-Pin Drop-In DCC Decoder for Life-Like Proto 2000


One Year Goof Proof Warranty
All TCS decoders are covered by a one year goof proof warranty


The LL8 is a 8-function direct-plug decoder designed specifically to meet the needs of LifeLike/Proto 2000 models. The LL8 can quickly be swapped for the existing DC board in your model, making the installation process fast and simple. The LL8 has a built-in circuit for the existing 1.5V bulbs used for the forward and reverse headlights. The remaining 6 lighting functions on the LL8 are rated for 12V.

IMPORTANT! If your model uses LED lighting from the factory, or you plan to upgrade to LED headlight(s), use the LL8-LED instead.
