3 bulb setup on '06 Tails on Gen 3...Pics and Video!

I like this alot better than doing a 2 bulb. To me ANOTHER light flashing beside the brake light is a lil safer. As in you can see it better!

The bottom one needs to be cut completly out, and in order for the reverse light socket to go in you need to TRIM a LITTLE bit for that one.......

Yes I know my LOF sux, its a cheap one and I DO need to get a REAL one!

Leme know if yall have any ?'s

B4 Cut

After cut

Piece that I cut out

Cut done 1

And yes i know the cut is nowhere NEAR pretty, but hey, works for me!

I def like how you cut out for the 3 bulb instead of converting to 2, I was thinking about gettin the new tails this summer but I just got a can of niteshade so maybe i'll just black out the stockers

Very nice I did this on the 00's and 01's I have on my truck now.

Only problem is they are 2 chamber setup unlike the 00 and down and with the break light on and the turn signal on in the same chamber you cant see the turnsignal.
