    Your wife Cheryl called and said no aftermarket tail lights ever.

    What happened to your upper bed trim?

    they should work. Just make sure you get the same one trim wise. I think some of the lower trims have different ones. I haven't seen any aftermarket ones that look better than OEM.

    16-17 are difference then 18-19. Make sure you get the 18-19 or it won’t match the other side.

    As stated above there are differences and most aftermarket ones all depend on your taste. But I will have to say I think mine look better than stock but limited production and very hard to get right now.
    Left stock....right new led

    You may also be able to find sets for sale fairly cheap from people going aftermarket.

    I know TRS said they're coming out with a tail light this year. I'm curious to see what that is like. Their headlight looks great but comparable in price to a true custom retrofit.

    Anytime! Those look great.


    So, I guess we're in agreement that OP needs to convince Meso to build him a set :rofl:

    The full housing tail lights.

    Yes, the turn signals are the lower amber lights similar to the stage 1 and 2 total tail light kits

    Question, I remember they came out but don’t remember the price. What did you guys pay for those when they were available?

    Thanks! A little bummed to hear this is by MESO since it seems like he's not doing taillight stuff anymore. I was just looking for a Stage 1 but they're all sold out everywhere and thought the light you guys posted would be a great alternative.

    I've seen a few drops.. I want to say somewhere in $800ish +/- range. It's been a while
