I didn't install anything yet, but I planned on ordering a 6-ohm >25watt resistor to wire in parallel with the back hatch light. This will draw roughly 2 amps and should load the circuit enough to make it work correctly. I may shoot for a 1 amp fix to see if that works. (12-ohms, >25watt)

These are available at Newark, mouser, or digikey for like $1.

There are a few options:
1. Put a regular bulb in the tailgate.
2. Put a 1.5K ohm resistor on the map light.

Here is a thread with similar discussion.

I didn't need anything special with my led install because I bought the correct can bus style led bulbs

Your welcome. I just went to radio shack. With how cheap resistors are shipping would probably cost more than the actual resistor.

Led interior ltg not dimming

I used a 194 lamp holder witha filament cargo area lamp in it, wired in parallel with the cargo light fitting(with led). This I ty wrapped into the body of the tailgate, the Leds all dim correctly now. Leaving the glove box lamp as a filament lamp does not work as it has its own switch isolating it from the other interior lighting.
