    When you swap the LED's, you will put your flasher into outage (fast flash - it thinks a bulb is burned out). You will either need to replace the stock flasher with an LED compatible one, or put line load resistors in. Flasher swap is the easiest.

    I have seen some on ebay before.

    Is there a difference in the one lights for barn doors? I have barn on the Yukon and a Tailgate on the Suburban and I cant tell the difference.

    I don't think there's a difference with barndoor vs tailgate.

    All good suggestions here. As was suggested eBay always has LED taillights - I was just looking at some yesterday - and not expensive at all - but you take your chances with eBay.
