    I used VHT nightshades a couple years ago. faded off but still noticeable. So I taped the taillights off where the lights would be. and used several coats of VHT nightshades on the areas that werent taped off.

    That's what I was wondering. I'd love to black out my taillights buy I don't want to sacrifice light output

    You wont lose a whole lot. tape off the reverse lights. and do a light coat or two and see how you like it. If you have 06+ which you do. The LED taillights are bright even with a few coats of nightshades.

    I love these tires, handles everything like a champ and, for a MT, they are relatively quiet on the road

    Thats good to hear! Do you have any rubbing issues? I have the stock sport wheels with 1.25 All-pro spacers. Most reviews seem to be positive.
