Converting the 3rd brake light to LED

I have recently ordered and am in the process of converting all of my '12 JKU exterior lights to LED and I'm down to doing the 3rd brake light. My question is, can I just replace the bulb to a compatible LED? Since this light doesn't blink, I should not need to use a resistor...am I correct on this?? If anyone has done this, could you reccomend a bulb? Also, even though the lens is red, should I still use a red LED bulb? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out with this!

This "should" be fine. The only thing I KNOW is, use a RED bulb. A white bulb will make the brake light appear purple.

You mean the third brake light is led only right? Just checking because the tail lights are not led while the third brake light is on mine. I converted all to smoke DOT Approved units.
