    I was thinking the same thing. It's too bad they don't make a "wingless" version that isn't almost 500 bucks. I also wonder how the wing illuminates being on the tailgate.

    Probably just a reflector like the Lincoln version of the f150

    Well, it's a 4 piece, you could toss the wings. I personally like the newer 2nd tail lights. The smoked ones from factory.

    If you look at the other pictures they definitely show it lighting up.

    Haha I'm too cheap to throw out half of 500 dollars worth of stuff. Damn for a few bucks more I could probably get one of the retrofit builders to throw a small projector in the reverse light and just drive around backwards everywhere.

    So f'n gross haha.

    I'd like to meet the guy who has these on his truck and just give him a firm slap across the face. Yeah man, throw some H1's in there and drive backwards. I'd pay to see that.

    they probably use some contact points between the two pieces to pass the electricity through. doesn't really matter how it is done, i am not a fan of them.

    They're not "too trashy." They're waaaay too trashy. Looks like something one would find on a clapped out (and lowered) Kia in a high school parking lot.
