Default What bulb number do I need?

I bought bright white LED license plate bulbs and they look great. They are very bright and there's no ugly yellow hue to them.

Now I'm trying to find what bulb number I need for the 3rd brake light on the back of the cab (2013 sport QC). It has the brake light in the middle and has the two reverse lights on the sides. They have that ugly yellow hue to them and I want to replace them.

1. Does anyone know what bulbs I need? I searched on superbrightleds.com but wasn't sure which one I needed. It says reverse light, but I don't know if that means it's for the reverse lights in the tail lights or for the reverse lights on the 3rd brake light.

2. Is it easy/possible to replace those lights?

Its very easy to check, there are 2 screws one on each side of the 3rd brake light, thats all that holds it there, pull the unit towards you and you have access to the bulbs. I think they are all 3 "T10" bulbs or 921's if you want, same thing

i personally just went and took out all 3 lights. 1 top of rear cab. 2 tail lights. 3 license plate lights. here are the numbers.

1. top of the cab housing: 3 "921" bulbs. no red or white difference. the plastic housing is the color.

2. tail lights housing: "3157k" bulbs for brake lights. and the reverse lights are the same "921" bulbs as on the cab.

3. license plate lights: "194LL".

so total of what you need to order.

"921" - 5
"3157k" - 2
"194LL" -2

Default LED reverse lights

Thanks for doing the research 1991 AWD Talon

Have you installed them yet? if so, how do they look? What's the quality of the LED? cost? Where did you buy them? pics?

I'm looking at these: http://store.ijdmtoy.com/25W-CREE-Hi...led-sku319.htm

but curious what everyone else is buying.

Word of warning... If you replace anything but the cargo lights, you will need error correction resistors or canbus bulbs.
Another word of warning, you should get as bright a RED 921 LED as you can for the 3rd brake light. The red portion of the lens will not appear very bright with a regular white LED behind it. Trust me, I know because I did the swap and had to go back to an incandescent bulb until I have the time to research one and the funds to buy it.
