    Finally got them and they were really easy to switch out. I'm keeping my old set in case the cops give me any problems. Only negative is the reverse light is pretty dim. Pardon the dirty ass truck. Supposed to rain for the next week here.

    I forgot to say. Sideways from CustomTacos actually will spray tint your lights and clearcoat them. He did a hell of a job for me.

    Looks good, and i think its a good idea to keep the originals cause it looks like that might be something the cops would bust your nuts for

    My bad in bringing up such an old thread, but I was browsing and those tinted tail lights look so frickin sweet with the indigo ink color. Can't wait to do the same to mine, once I get it.
