I have full led tails, but if I were wanting to get led bulbs, I'd go thru retrosolutions.

Not sure what socket type bulb your tail lights take, but these are the one's I bought a while back, pretty sure they'll fit yours toohttp://retro-solutions.net/product-info.php?3156_3056_3157_3057_3457_4157_T20_5W_CREE _LED_Reverse_Wedge_Bulbs-pid704.html. Definitely improved light output behind the truck

Retrosolutions site has a link to sylvania's site that shows what your stock bulb number is, then you can match it up to retrosolutions led bulbs

Thanks everyone. So when you look at those bulbs its asking to choose a bulb type? Top 5w only and something else? What do I choose?

Personal preference i guess, i ended up going with the top 5w led only and very happy with them. To my understanding, the second option-radial led-emits light around the sides of the bulb as well? Not too sure on the difference, but either should work
