Question Tail Light Covers Blew Off!

Ok so during my 2 hour trip to Alabama this weekend one of my tail light covers blew off and is now gone forever. So heres the choice I'm faced with. Buy new ones (About $50), use night shade, or leave them off. INPUT PLEASE.

yeah, the 06's look nice, I got a set of those a couple years ago, really cleans up the back of the truck.
