    whaddup ya'll

    My truck didn't pass inspection because my tail lights are a little tinted. Even though the light is barely dimmed at all, you aren't aloud to tint tail lights to any degree in Utah apparently.

    Which of these two look best?
    Smoked, or chrome?

    yeah man go for it. Ya, I've read that the nite shade really dims your reverse lights so you shouldn't tint them..plus it looks sick haha.

    well I've redone them twice, and it sucks. You can either spend a while and sand all of the tint of with some sand paper. Gas gets it off too, but you have to use quite a bit of it. I just sanded them off tho. I only did two coats of vht and then two clear coats, they look sick!

    I'm thinking I'll go with the Spyder chrome LED lights instead of the smoked ones.

    I think I'd check if they are rated off-road only before buying.

    I 'm partial to tails blending with the truck paint color, therefore i'd go with the chrome ones because your truck is white, but then your 3rd brake light won't match... that's IMHO
