    Looks good Will, have you not looked at the LED ones though? Or do you just not like the LED look?

    I know there are some pretty cool looking LEDs for the second gens, not sure about the first gens though. And that third brake light will look good as well :thumbsup:

    if the bezels around the three indivdual light are chrome(can't tell if they are or not)i don't think they match your rugged/tough lookin truck, but jmo, di u use the night shades on ur tailights? i did and it turned out great! not really a fan of the spray paint method that some do.

    I found a guy on ebay that makes custom 3rd brake light covers that are black and have whatever you want cut out of them so a word lights up when you hit the brakes. I was gonna get one that says "TACO"

    I bought one off amazon that is a chrome thing that attaches over the third brake light... It serves its purpose:

    And Will, as I have looked for lights for first gens, I have come to the conclusion that LED type lights just do not look well on the first gens, so go with your original light choice :)

    its not that im into those type lights, but the ones i linked are some of the better looking ones i have found, and pricewise,are good, and already smoked. still not sure im gonna even bother getting any, but if i get any, these are the ones ima get. especially since my pass side light has a crack in it.
