Want to replace the brake light reverse light and turn indicator with LED bulbs. Do I need load resistors? Are there any leds out already equipped with load resistors so I don't have to cut the wiring harness?

Just use pop in replacement bulbs that's what I did. The brake led's seem to throw off an (RF) frequency

I was going to buy them today and the Autozone guy said you'll need the extra resistance to make the lights blink correct. His Jeep had the quick blinker. I converted my old CBRR to LED and did the same thing so I had to find a good place to dissipate the heat which wouldn't burn wires or melt plastic. Today I looked as I replaced a light on my Liberty and there is ample room to place the resistors on the lamp mount. My problem is with what? The Sylvania's didn't have mounting brackets. I may epoxy on some metal plating and high temp epoxy the resistor on there. A little high temp paint on the body where the resistor will be won't hurt either.

The way I see it is that if you replace one you'll need to replace all with the wiring unless you isolate the one bulb you replace. That's around $100 right now so a substantial upgrade to me!

Amazon has turn signal resistors.
