I have LEDs in my reverse lights and they light up entire houses now haha. I didn't use a resistor with them and don't have any flashing or "afterglow" issues. I think it's because the power to the reverse lights is completely cut off when the car is not in R. Here's a pic.

They're 194 bulbs whereas the stock bulbs are 912, but they're interchangeable. This is where I got them from:

194 LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Wide Angle Wedge Base | Miniature Wedge Base LEDs | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs

There are plenty of different style bulbs to choose from on the site.

I would check with your local State or County police before installing them. They might just be illegal and if someone hits you in the rear, you could be totally responsible for it.

Tag lights? If anything cops will love that so they can see your tag. I was pulled over awhile back for having a clear plate on mine. The stock lights and the natural lighting in the day produced a glare so he couldn't read my tag. So, led and plate less for me

What year Mustangs are you folks refering to? the 2011 taillights are mostly LED, with the exception of the reverse bulbs. Here are the bulb typs for the taillight housings from the 2011 owners manual:

Tail lamp, brake lamp, turn lamp (LED)
L1230R-3N and
L3230R-4CX

* High-mount stoplamp (LED) Non-replaceable LEDs

Backup lamp 912
License plate lamp C5WL

All replacement bulbs are clear in color except where noted.
