    LED Reverse Lights

    I'm looking to replace the regular bulbs with LED's. I own a 2008 Explorer XLT I believe it's been done before but how would I go about removing the tail lights in order to actually remove and replace the bulb? Is there anything else I should know? Thanks.

    I recently replaced all front and rear turn signals and the tail/brake lights with LEDs. I got an EP27 LED relay from Advance Auto, so there's no rapid flashing. The only problem is that now when I use my turn signal, both front turn signals flash (as if I had the hazards on) and both rear...
