1997 tj brake lights not working

So all my rear lights work blinkers, running, hazards but no brake light?
I installed led taillights almost 2 years ago no problems.....now I have an issue
I checked fuse and was burned out so I replaced with same 20 fuse but once I press brake it pops the fuse. I checked wiring at the light looks solid but can't figure problem out anybody have suggestions on wat I can try??

Im no wiring pro, but sounds like a piece of wire is exposed somewhere and blowing the fuse. When I did my LED lights I joined the wires on the inside of the tub, had to remove rear inner fenders to get in there and seal everything up well. May have to check the wires front to back, is it possible the there is a problem with wire near the brake switch? Good luck finding the problem, hopefully someone might have something more helpful.
