Default Lighting question

I want to change my reverse lights to LEDs as well as my brake lights. What would I use to do so?

I've seen these on ebay and didn't know how they are.

I'm confused when it comes to lights. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

What? All these **** numbers are confusing as ****. I don't know what will fit and what wont.

Basically give me a link to some cheap ones for the reverse lights and brake lights and that'll help a ton.

Sorry if I sound angry just don't know what much lighting stuff is.

Wow you do sound angry. 168 and 194 are the bulb numbers that will fit in the socket. Generally the difference between the bulbs could be length, girth and power output. The bulb you've linked to would replace the part numbers they've mentioned on the eBay ad. They could replace a single filament bulb with that connector which is why they've listed several types like T20, 7440, 7441 etc.

Bulbs are discussed here Bulbs you can find the ones you're specifically looking to replace and then search eBay.

Good luck.

Yes, I'm sorry, Like I said it's all very confusing but thank you for helping me out. Makes things a ton easier. Thanks for the link.
