Are you talking about the third brake light or the main ones? I believe the 3rd already is an LED

WOW. Must have. I need only a part numbers (4 pieces) and some time to order, and i'll fix it on my '99 TLC. Somebody?

My guess is they are a direct bolt-in. My reasoning is, there appear to be roughly 26 red LED's on the tailgate lamp and about 20 on the side lamp. Most likely, the LED's are connected in series, so for a typical knee voltage of 0.7v for each LED, and you'd get 18.2v and 14v drop on each lamp if each were connected to a single DC supply (ie, more than 12v). This implies there are more than two 12v power connections w/ a resistor in series for each connection (total voltage drop should equal 12v, and we'll assume it's regulated). That means either the lamp itself needs to include the resistors, or it would have to be included in the harness between the lamp and fuse box. Chances are, the latter would have higher production costs (2 different harnesses to stock) while with the former, the lamp is a completely self-contained unit.

I have seen these new lamps and they are incredible. Any one ordered them yet or know how much they cost.

Thanks,

I think everyone was more curious as to whether they would even work as a direct bolt-in. Jim's reasoning is sound but no one has verified this yet.
