I put the original incandescent bulb BEHIND each light fixture, the plastic tail light, whre the bulb plugs into. The LED is in the original socket, plugged into the fixture. the "extra" bulb, with black shrink tubing over it, goes between the plastic light fixture and the metal body of the truck. There is a depression in the pastic that the bulb fits in nicely, and when the fixture is reinstalled, the blacked out bulb is trapped between the plastic fixture and the body of the truck. A long brake will probably get everything pretty warm, but not like a resister. If nee3d be, I can get a picture.
