Default 2013 Ford F150 FX4 - LED Brake Light

Curious to ask if anyone has had any issue with installing LED bulbs for the brake lights on a 2013 F150?

I ask this because the tailights on this model are also the turn signal lights. I think there is an issue with LED bulbs not being able to handle reverse polarity or some jive talk like that.

Anyways, let me know. I am sure resistors will need to placed on each bulb to prevent hyper flash.

The Anzo's are pretty sweet but I actually like the stocks since this is the text Sedo black version of the FX4, the tail lights are already smoked.

For the life of me I cannot remember the brand, can't find it in emails, I'll see if I still have the package at home. I think the brand was a three letter abbreviation with a G in it that stood for German, IIRC....

But anyhow..... I swapped my bulbs out for LED's a while back. First set was cheap ones and they died quickly. Spent a little more on replacements with "German" (I think) in the name and they have lasted quite a while. No resistors added, they do flash faster but not enough to be an issue.

AGT. Advanced German Technology, although they are branded Genssi. Just Google "AGT led 3157" and you'll find 'em. I got the red ones instead of white.
