    I've searched and haven't found a LED third brake light that doesn't have issues with either water/condensation in the light housing or that it allows water into the cab. Has anyone come across a quality unit that is bright?
    I did swap the incandescent out for LED bulbs. It's an improvement but I want brighter...

    Waiting for @mesojdm to make a rigid rock light compatible housing for our trucks. Should be the brightest.

    I've tried an aftermarket one but it was a fish tank after the first rain.

    Why not get an aftermarket one and seal it up with your own handiwork?

    I might have to go down that road. Is a 2nd Gen brake light in development?

    I know Meso made a 3rd gen one and in his post he said he made a 2nd gen one but I'm not sure if he's going to actually put that into production or not.
