Was it as simple as switching out for LED bulbs or did you have to swap entire tail light assembly?
Yes, all you have to do is swap bulbs. The light assembly is completely stock. However you have to splice a resistor onto the power & ground (green & black) wires of the bulb. Otherwise, it will think your bulb is burnt out and your flasher will go nuts. LEDs consume less power than regular bulbs so you have to 'fool' the flasher into thinking that a regular bulb is still there. That's what the resistor does.

I posted the how-to in this thread:
