Yep there are LED replacements for almost all the different types of bulbs out there and lots of colors to choose from. The smaller bulb sizes, 921/922/194/912/161, are the same prong different glass bulb size. For the most part all interchangeable once you go LED. This also goes for the bulb in an aftermarket gauge. I have started running the cheaper Chinese ones off EBay as they are a lot brighter and last longer then the American made ones. They were also the first ones that you could use that have the resistors built in. DON'T BUY RECON LEDS (want a good laugh? type recon.com instead of gorecon.com
). Utter crap, where the dimmest that I've used and half of them ether came dead or lasted at most two weeks (and expensive at that). You will need duel mode LED's and the resistor (ether built in or separate) for the 4 turning/flashing LED's. Otherwise the remaining energy back-burns to the 3rd brake light causing it to light up when you want to change lanes and plays tricks on the overdrive/electric trailer brakes thinking that your stepping on the brake. These are kinda old pictures and I don't have any on me to show all the rest. Tip, they only work in one direction.
