How do you get to the bulbs? Do you need to remove the tailgate to get the whole assembly out? I want to replace the bulbs with LEDs. Thank you.

No. Just remove the 3 brush guard screws and the whole assembly pops out. I've put LEDs everywhere on my 855D and 865R and they are typically brighter and will certainly last. The only rub is if you have turn signals, the lower wattage of the LEDs mean your flasher relay likely won't work. I replaced the stock relay with an electronic motorcycle type unit (less than $10 on Amazon). I did find even these flashers don't necessarily like the Osram blade type rear light probably due to very low power requirement. You can see that if your hazard will flash but a turn signal won't.

CaptSeabee: They do make LED specific relays to prevent the hyper flash from occurring. Not certain what JD uses to be able to match upto though.

Example: LED Flasher Relay
