Drop-in LED taillight bulbs?

Is there anyone that sells drop in taillight/reverse LEDs? I just put Nite Shade on my taillights and it looks awesome but I'm afraid it'll be difficult to see during bright sunlight. I'd like to find something thats just a quick swap replacement.

None that really work.

You'll have to install a resistance load to ensure that the flashers work at factory rates and since the lens reflectors are designed for incandescent bulbs, you'll have a minimal light output.

I didn't even consider the reflectors, good point. Even then, just as long as the bulb itself is more visible/brighter through the lens cover I'd be happy. Does anyone have any experience with this kit: Delta Tech 03115657JK - Delta 13 Piece LED Light Bulb Conversion Kit for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
