Ok so my right led tail light is a lil burnt and appears a lot lighter compared to the left side. Would I get in trouble/pulled over if i just disconnected the LED tail lights but kept the reverse light and brake lights on?

you dont need the led panels legally. As long as your rear corners lights are on and they get brighter when signaling or braking AND the 3rd brake light works then its fine.

I drove like that for months with my last tbird.

Just keep an eye open on here or put a wtb for a 96+ led panel...lots of people have some left...

its just a running light

you can also take out your inner front parking lights seeing how they dont flash or blink or seve any purpose...

yeah, they will be spares. well, sorta. the ones from mine are cracked, and i will be dissecting those to see if it is possible, then i will migrate that to the good ones. (with half burned out led's)

as far as the cold cathodes thing sinhumane the only things is they crack easily so you lay find yourself replacing them every few bumps in your car.... or at least my cathodes break easily.
