    im really happy with the look as well, it compliments the lunar mist and blacked out badges.

    They look good during the day, do you have any night shots. If that's the total light output that can't be safe...?

    i have those ones, i can say the brake light and the turn signal are pretty bright, but the reverse lights are as disappointing as the factory ones. i put leds in my back up lights, didn't help.

    Those look bad ass on a white truck to :cool:

    I ordered these through "genntec" on Ebay and they sent me the wrong ones (I think they were for '05+). They refunded me but I'd like to find these with the 3rd brake light included. Does anybody know where I can get all three?

    Not sure if anyone here is still subscribed to this post, but are the LED tails worth investing in? I saw a guy running some the other day. The turn signal and the back up lights I have covered...but how does the square of LEDs perform? Is there a significant difference between running lights and when you apply the brake? I don't want to get these if the LEDs just look like they're bright all the time, even when NOT braking. More info would be good thanks! :woot:

    Was considering these too. I think they're just like any other car with LEDs as brake lights.

    Well I've seen plenty of Silverado's with LED brake lights...but you can't tell a darn difference between when they're running and braking. I want a clear distinction between running lights and braking...for the sake of safety. I have 2057's in my brake lights because the difference between running and braking is about 20.1 watts as opposed to 1157's with about 18 watts. When I press my brake I want people to know I'm stopping.

    Have you tried looking up a youtube video of the lights? Cause mine are extremely bright. Lights up everything in the block when I brake lol. Was considering some LEDs for the rear and some HIDs with LED drls up front to modernize the truck a little.
