    What are tail light covers? I've never seen any. Do you have a link to some?

    I have a silver tacoma and I am planning to lightly tint my tail lights when I have the funds. I will not be using covers though, I will be going the route of vinyl tint. Vinyl tint takes a little longer to apply but is just as easy to take off and is a lot cheaper. One thing I don't like about the covers is how dark they are and they only come in one tint. I do not want that much light cut out of the effectiveness of my tail lights.

    the covers are way too dark, just spray tint them, if you want you can take it off with contact cleaner

    I like the concept but those look really dark. I wouldn't want someone ramming into the back of me and then saying it's my fault. Do they come in different shades?
