    Anyone have any luck with replacing OEM tail lights with cheaper replacement lights? If so, are they reliable?
    Should I just spend the money and get the Toyota part?


    Thanks!

    My truck has one TYC aftermarket tail light from before I bought it, with no issues, it fits and matches perfectly. Being an '06, it's not the LED light though. I'd go used genuine over new aftermarket, but that's not always an option due to the demand for LED tails.

    I won't go aftermarket on headlights after bad experiences with the TYC headlights in my previous Civic, the pattern was nowhere near as good, and they yellowed much faster than OEM.
