For safety considerations, I would consider replacing the brake lights. The fact that LEDs activate much faster than incandescent give cars following behind extra notice that you are on your brakes. I've read that at 60mph, that can translate to an extra 20ft of stopping distance for someone following behind.

Thanks for sharing; I'll replace mine soon.
