    Well, looks like some ass decided to back into my truck while I was eating at the Olive Garden and didn't even have the respect to leave a not with info. I'm telling you these South Florida people have no idea how to drive and have absolutely no respect for others hard earned belongings. Since I bought my truck in Oct 2011 been hit 5 times while I was in the store, hospital or restaurant. Luckily I have a bull guard and my front hasn't been damaged, but I do have their paint colors still on it haha.

    Well, enough rambling. Looks like I'm going to have to replace it since its pretty much crushed. My question is that they were stock tail lights and I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation about where to go online to get another stock one. I've cruised the internet and seen a bunch of them but not sure which ones are good stock and which ones are crap? Also, would it be smart to replace both at same time or would one be OK? And should I just upgrade from stock since I have to replace, what would you recommend?

    Reason I am asking is because I am not mechanically inclined, but I want to learn. Ask my anything about guns and where to get the best deals for quality, but when it comes to cars or trucks I have no idea and am learning from y'all.

    Thanks!

    I guess since there is zero input I'll just give the Toyota parts department to see what they charge for a single taillight
