Default Re: led tail light bulbs?

i dont really care about brightness, i want a design, not just a tiny filament burning, but like a vertical string of leds like the new Cadillacs, or like a halo of leds to match my front halos???

Has anyone though about using the back up housing as a blinker and doing accessory back up lights on the bumper?

well i have my blinkers plugged into my backup lenses because my truck is a 3 bulb setup and the 06 corners are for a 2 bulb setup (and the 98 turn signal plug matches the 01+ backup lamp hole). my real backup lights aren't plugged in.

How is that working for you? I need my back up lights too much because of the tinted windows!

Did significant resrach when I tinted my stockers too dark, tried all sorts of different remedies. Messaged the seller of the "brightest tail light LED's on bay" who said they're only just as bright as factory.

My remedy? Bought LED tail light assemblies, and blacked the SHIT out of them.

L1224R's: Brighter than anything you will find on eBay
L1224R's: Brighter than the tail lights you bought
Custom hand built tail lights with 210 superflux each: Even better still.

eBay is a place where people go for something thats "custom" to make thier truck "unique" when they don't have the skill or talent to do it their selves.

Don't know what that is, nor did I care to mod my beater any further,

And I am not competing, just stating what I did. I am done modifying, pissed literally 100k+ on modifying pieces of shit in the last 7 years. I'm over it.

If the mod bug bites again I will let you know lol

Just be careful with that night shade. Personally I won't even do that work for my customers because of the dangerous situation it puts them in. I know someone that was denied insurance coverage because of tint on the tail lights of a vehicle during a rear end collision.

I have it on three vehicles, and have several insurance claims. I've never heard of that. On charger forums someone had mentioned that the police had pulled them over and claimed something similar. Someone dug up a statute meandering in saying that the tail lights needed to be a certain amount of lumens; most factory tail lights in late model vehicles exceed the lumens about 2x anyway.

The other issue is the reflectors. If I recall, they need to be seen from 90 feet away.

Not sure the repercussions if these are not met, but I can tell you that niteshades works fine for me, you can see the reflectors and tails every bit as well as stock in these tails (reflectors are very minutely affected by VHT... and my LED tails were about 2x as bright as stockers anyway out of the box)

My charger, explorer, and ranger all have tinted tails and corners. In fact, the corners on the charger (which are just parking lights) are painted over indefinitely.
