I mounted mine right behind the tail light in the interior. Just make sure theyre not close to any plastic or carpet because they get hot.

Each LED bulb needs a 6ohm 50w, so if you have four LEDs then you need a four resistors. Or two LEDs then two resistors.

If you plan on doing LED blinkers on the front and rear (4 bulbs) then you can use two 3 ohm 50w resistors also. The descriptions below might clear things up...

4 bulbs http://www.v-leds.com/Load-Resistors...-p5679822.html

2 bulbs http://www.v-leds.com/Load-Resistors...-p4783296.html

If you go with the RL-650, you'll need one for each bulb.

I'm not sure what would happen, too much resistance maybe?
