Default 06+ tailight conversion

I did search and all, maybe i missed it, but what all do i need to do the conversion, is it difficult( i suck with wires but im sure i could figure it out over time) ive heard its easy but, also do you guys think these years will look best on my truck i think they will because the red color looks kinda close to mine, i think they would look clean. also who ever has some for sale, let me know.

if you have 2 bulbs right now it's a plug and play set up. if you have 3, that gets more interesting. i've seen people splice wires together to get the brake light to blink instead of the 3rd bulb, or someone put an amber bulb in the reverse light spot and tapped a new whole to put in a clear reverse light.

Its basically plug and play like /\/\ he said, the only problem I ran into was the bulb sockets didn't fit in at first so I had to take a dremel to the new lights. But it was easy!
