    I just got my tail lights and front windows tinted. I like the 09+ tail light style and was proud to be showing it off, but now it's hidden...bad idea?:confused: Oh well, let me know what you think!

    I also painted the wheels black this past weekend, I just like the contrast of white and black. When I get the $$$ I'll get the lift and new wheels and tires but for now this will do.

    I have the same tail lights and was thinking the same thing. But honestly, it doesn't look bad at all in my opinion. I think the tail lights look nice tinted or non-tinted.

    a lift and more aggressive tires would set it off ofc. I like the tails though.

    Well to each their own. I was going to try the BTLM instead of tinting but I got too scared of messing them up!

    ^ true, but you asked, so i posted!! also, BTLM cant be done w/o cutting and hacking them up, so tinting is the only way.
