i ordered it from jims autoparts ... after i did the install i thought about what happens when the LED's burn out..reason i ask this is i have changed my rear brake light/signal bulb atleast twice on both sides within the last yr.do they make replacement LED's for this or do i have to order a new tail light ?

Not sure about replacements but LED's should last much longer than regular bulbs. 100,000 hours rating on some I've seen.

Mike not really, the led's are on a curcuit board they could be replaced if you wanted to tear them apart to get to everything. also as NewBlue said they <span class="ev_code_RED">should</span>(the magic word)last 100,000.hrs but they don't.
i had 3 go out on the D/S a few months after i got them. and thats been a few yrs ago. and no more have went out.the set before once they started going out whey slow worked their way to every bulb.

I've changed taillights several times and haven't had any issues. The better brands can't afford to have to many issues. One of the reasons I make sure the seller has a good warranty.
