    Just wondering.......

    What about doing a black housing or color match on the OEM LED tail lights? We do it to our headlights.


    Edit:
    Didn't realize I was in the build section

    I used to work for the company that makes the taillights for our trucks (North American Lighting) pretty sure the lens is bonded to the fixture (not positive), not like the front lamps.

    What's funny is the fixture is molded in black then metalized to appear chrome in the LED models, best I recall.
