Default Smoked headlight and taillights

Ive got a 03 edge new to ranger and was wondering what is the best brand of smoked head and tail lights that are still visible.

Night shade what ever tone of tint you want clearly still visible to other drivers. Dont put it on your headlights though

you should make your own retrofit. They are pricey but your best bet

Don't be a douche and tint your headlights. Do you not like being able to see or be seen at night? Some people's kids...

Do the Niteshade on your tails and then do the headlight mod... it will not decrease light output at all... and it is super cheap to do

This exactly.

I also can't stand when people niteshade tails, but whatever. When someone plows in to the back of your car cause I can't see your stoping, don't cry about it.

also, if a person rear ends you because they cannot see your ILLEGALLY tinted tail lights, It's be your fault.

Mine are tinted and are still bright as stock so your argument is invalid

If they can be seen at 300 feet at night there still legal right? Thats what I heard.
And I have niteshaded headlights before. 1 or 2 coats will not affect much but will give your headlights a blue look instead of a "tinted" look

Headlight mod on headlights.

And we're just giving you advice. So stop being a cry baby about it.

well you have to be a dumb ass to want to smoke your head lights, so hopefully my smart ass will educate yours.

and in CA it will be your fault for getting rear ended because most dumb asses don't realize it's illegal to tint your tails since it no longer leaves them red in color.
