Default Tail Lights!

Need some opinions. Just came to the realization mine are pretty ricey....
Leaning towards the clear red ones, a little more factory looking.

The truck: (note-fx4 stickers have been removed)



The Tail Lights: (clear or smoked)



Any input will be greatly appreciated!

Get either the 06 stock lights, or the ones you posted a pic of. Those look like a nicer version of the 01-05 tails.

or these

L.E.D tails that are smoked black look real sharp then you only see red when you hit the brakes or lights it turns. either that or 06+ tails

06+ are my #1 choice, after that would be the LEd w/ smoked reverse.

The smoked led's are pretty cool. This coming from a diehard hater of aftermarket taillights. Hahah
