    Has anyone had good success with aftermarket (Ebay) taillamps? I'm looking for LED. Can you show pics? I'm looking at this specific set- but I'm interested in all opinions. Thanks!

    I looked at those but they stuck out to much IMO. Look like old dodge ram tails.

    That's the reason I went with the smooth black'd out ones. Wish they had yellow blinker instead of red tho...but they don't has pink reverse lights, lol.

    If they work for the 09-10's then there's no reason they wouldn't work for the 2011.

    You ever considered tinting stock tail lights? I took my stock ones (non LED), which were red, and actually matched my red truck, and tinted them about two shades darker... Looks great IMO.

    I'm actually looking to go LED, and I'm not tinting the headlamps. On my Indigo Ink truck, I'm not sure tinted lamps would look good unless I'm looking to black stuff out.

    See my build page!
    You if you tinted these, they would look pretty much the same as tinted OEM LED tail lights?

    I think they would and its way more cost effective!

    I personally will never drive a vehicle with tinted taillight lenses. If I were ever rear-ended, it would be a great excuse to sue my ass off, even if it wasn't my fault.
