    Hey guys, i really want to get some clear corner lights for the front of my truck. I was just wondering if i would have to buy a whole new set of lights or if i could pop the orange piece out and replace it with a clear one. If i could do that, where could i get the clear piece?
    I greatly appreciate any help,
    Thanks

    I considered buying a set for the black trim off ebay too since it looked like masking the trim on them would be a bear. Turned out to be super easy with a sharp Xacto knife once I got them off the truck. And I got to make sure the black on those matched the black I used on the rest of the grill.

    i hear that. well, im gonna bed line the grille, so i think it'll blend pretty good with the ones i end up getting, then i'll have the full brushguard so you wont really be able to tell to much difference then too.

    So you have to buy brand new lights, you cant just pop the orange reflector piece out and replace it with a clear one and replace the clear lights with amber ones?

    Nope... the housing is all one piece of plastic (so to speak). You can't really take it apart.

    correct....and believe, i have tried....it dont work, and i havent seen anyone with just a replacement reflector anyway. $25 aint bad for a new set of corners though.

    Check with your state laws.... They might require parking lights be 'orange' in color.

    So - along with the clear corner lenses, you might have to buy orange bulbs to keep it legal.
