They have that stock look with an updated feel. Here is a link to similar ones on eBay.

Sure I can put it up for you. I recommend using photobucket. It lets you store photos online and you can simply post the link from any photo you've uploaded and then this forum doesn't have to host the photo (no quota overages)

They are plug and play(you just plug them in like a regular bulb) but they are available with red lens(which mimic the stock housings)
Here is the site I got mine from www.carid.com

Also thanks for helping me post the pics of my taillights

I'm afraid you will not be able to find LED taillights for an EXT. For some reason noone makes them. They are available for an Avalanche but the housing won't line up perfectly with the body mouldings of an Escalade. You can decide whether or not this would bother you.

You can try avalanche taillights(not sure if they a exactly the same)

I am the same way I am going to have to replace one of the taillights as one of the LEDs is failing(thanks to the shop not checking the the ring around the socket and it bugs me like crazy
