Reverse light LED's

So I'm thinking of putting led's as my reverse lights and I'm wondering do I need a resistor or any other equipment, or is it simply plug 'n play

Get those with a CREE in the middle minimum. Reverse doesn't need resistor.

So I'm taking it, any white led will work as a reverse light

Not really, you need at least a high power CREE in the middle pointing backward. If there are a few 5050 SMDs pointing in the reflector it's OK but more for looks than light output.
