Default LED Tail Lights

Got my tail lights and reverse light done.... The tails REALLY stand out because they're clean and the paint is covered in salt.

I am ashamed to post pictures of my truck in this condition... But I'm 100 miles from home at school, and its 15 degrees out

Pictures were also taken with my phone. I'll be home this weekend, so look out for clean pictures on Friday evening!!!





These tail lights are for a 2 bulb setup. So I'm using the main LED's for my brake lights, and the reverse slots for my turn signals. I'm using chrome covered red bulbs's for my turn signals, so it's pretty stealthy. I also wired up a single 55W reverse light. That little sucker lights up twice as good as the factory setup, really impressed with it for its size. I used the stock wiring so it can only come on in reverse, and only used 1 so I wouldn't melt the factory setup.

I know, a tear comes out when I look at it lol. It hasn't snowed for a week and they're still laying salt everyday

It will be washed on Friday when I go home, no exceptions lol

Love them lights! I got the same but in black. Don't worry about the salt and such I was the same. It's going to look awesome when clean. And agree with Clinton, get some night shots

The how-to wasn't too clear, this works, and it was cheaper. My reverse light is a lot better than the stock setup anyway. I'm happy with it.
I also read some people were having trouble with it after a couple months...
