    do LED tail lights need rewiring?

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone knows if it's required to do rewiring to switch from stock tail lights to the stock looking LED tail lights or if they just connect right into the stock connectors.

    LED tail lights or LED bulbs? I swapped out my bulbs for LED bulbs and I needed to install a new flasher module otherwise I would need to wire in load resistors.

    I'm wanting to ones like these where it's the whole assembly with the LEDs already in them

    Ohhh...Ebay specials. I'd imagine the manufacturer could tell you whether you need to do any splicing or anything. I imagine there'd have to be some kind of harness or splicing considering you're no longer using a bulb, so the stock connector wouldn't work.

    I take it you've come across this kind of tail light before, I did see them on eBay but saw them first on a few different websites. I don't think they are that bad looking, I mean they look just like the original tail lights and have red lenses where the brake light is, they just have LEDs instead of the standard bulb, kinda gives it a newer tech look I think anyway.
