LED License Plate Bulb

I'm planning on replacing my burnt out license plate bulb with an LED bulb, and I want it to be as bright as possible without modding the cover. Does anyone know if either of these two bulbs will fit?

That's what I did on one of my old durangos when I got a fix it ticket, the bulb, socket, and housing all somehow melted together haha a few waterproof led strip and some wire splicing and it was good as new for like a quarter of what it would have cost for me to fix it the right way haha

I just happened to have a roll of waterproof white leds laying around that I got from China for like 6 bucks so it was basically free..

You don't have to mod the cover, you could just stick those right on top haha

I'm not wiring anything up either. Just a direct replacement.

But I don't want to make one. I just want a pre-assembled bulb that goes directly in. I don't need a light bar, just the brightest replacement bulb that will fit within the existing housing.

the LED yoru looking at is too big, you need the smaller 194 bulb and it will be a direct replacement I replaced mine with ones like these and its quite bright
