    Looking for a quality led third brake light to match my smoked tails. Purchased one off eBay only to install it and it blow my tail light fuse which in turn kept the truck in park. So looking for a nice quality third brake light. And yes I did the leds in the stock light and didn’t like the looks of it. To me it looked out of date.

    Thanks for any suggestions

    The LED ones you find everywhere are garbage!

    Replace the lens with LED bulbs and you’re set!

    Have the light smoke with red LED bulbs.

    Wouldn’t matter if you wanted a meso anyway, he hasn’t had second gen stuff for months on end.
