Default FS: Custom Blacked Tail Lights

Very glossy, look great. Very Dark. Buyer will be advised to purchase LEDs for brakes so they shine through well. You can see tail lights but it's somewhat dim.

Off of a 2003 ranger tremor stepside. Tail light are supposedly the same between truck beds. $125 obo.

Pm w questions.

Not at all, they sell painted on ebay for 200 plus shipping (25)

You could always say "Would you take X amount", this is possible to ask.

Make an offer. Professionally painting tail lights is expensive I paid 300 for my charger tails painted.

I love people who come at me with no cash but they want nice stuff. People do it to me all the time on craigslist: "hey ill trade you some pocket lint and some old used boots for that truck"

I paid 12.50 to do it myself. Isn't just black and clear mixed?

Good luck getting LEDs that will actually be bright enough for realistic use as I am not selling the remainder of my L1224R collection.

Flashtech sells plenty. eBay didn't have many that could do the job from what I saw, however.

You could retrofit, or wire in a second bulb, or buy LED's from a specific vendor that are brighter, not eBay.

I always keep a set of factory lights around, that way if I run in to police trouble I will be OK. Here in Indiana there is no limit the the lumens tail lights must product, and in many states where there are a third brake light trumps this law.

Some states say that the reflectors must be visible, but they are; just not as bright and you come to the lumens argument again.

Most people who paint them themself end up with a matte, terrible finish. These tail lights are fantastically sprayed.

I challenge you to show me an LED solution as bright as the L1224R's work that does not require opening the lamp.

These are mine, and you can talk to RangeRansom and ask him how well these are done.

I don't recall saying I could show you an LED solution as bright as the L1224R's but I can assure you that if Flashtech felt it was in their best interests to do so, it would be attainable.

If you will note, I said that MOST people who paint their tail lights on their own do a poor job. I too have seen exceptions. For every light done like this, I see 10+ that look like someone sh*t on a light and painted over it.

The thing about the word MOST is that it implies that it does not include all of a given population, and that there are exceptions.

Your tail lights DO look exceptional.
