Yeah lots of discussion about this.

You'll want a Command Electronics LED sealed triple tail light (looks like they are sold out). If you call them you can even get them with the Thor connections so it is a really easy swap out. (Looks like etrailer has them but those come with bare wires so you'll have to splice them in yourself.)

You should also toss the gasket that comes with them and put in something that won't crush and leak (like a rubber one--I took a rubber sheet and cut it to fit).

I never understood why Command Electronics made the center backup lights with two screws and a lousy paper gasket that will also fail. I sealed the new lights with butyl rubber and external sealer but those damn paper gaskets on the backup lights still seemed to allow moisture in. Still better than the stock incandescent lights.

I just changed out the bulbs to LED on the OEM tail lights and sealed everything up with Butyl Tape
These LED bulbs were $9.99 on Amazon for a 10pk
I needed 6

Ref Paper gaskets. What I found on my lights is the gasket is foam but had a paper over the adhesive. I removed mine, took off the paper and flipped the gasket over and stuck it to the housing side and reattached the lens. Then I plugged all the screw heads with soft butyl. That was 3 years ago and no water behind the lens since.
