Default LED brake light "bulbs'

Do Our trucks need resistors for LED brake Lights and reverse lights or can i just plug them in and run them..? I just night-shaded my tails even darker and wanted to put brighter bulbs in..

Thanks in advance..

yeah i know i can get those, and i almost bought a set today, but the guy said if they don't work, it might be because i need resistors.. so i held off on it. They were the right Part number and everything, but i was just seeing if any Electrical savy people can jump in on this one and help me out..

They might blink faster, but they will work

LED's are no problem, just plug the bulbs in like a regular bulb.

The issue is usually the OEM flasher. It sees the lower resistance of the led's & thinks the bulb is burned out, so it blinks super fast or Hyper Flash.

Grab a good quality EP27 electronic flasher & you should be good to go with as many led plug-in bulbs as you want.
