Default New Tails For My '98

I ordered these taillights for my truck. My truck is stock, the only thing I've done to it is paint the grille and front bumper white to match the truck. I would like your opinion on whether I should run it with just the new tails or if I should upgrade the front corners also. Here are a couple pics. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I will post more pics when they arrive and I put them on.

Go with clear headlights and corners. It will clean up the front end.

you may have to do a little modification on your tails.. the ones you ordered look to be a three bulb set up and you probably only have a two bulb set up on your truck.. just sayin.
