I have had them....but I had the REAL ones......APC brand is who made that same exact looking one that are now appearing on ebay for cheap. But the ones i have are carbon fiber, not flat black. They are bright. I had them on my '01, now my brother has the '01 and they are still on there, and have been since '02. They do light up bright....the back up lamps light up bright than stock '01s do. The only downside, is that when the brake is pressed, it does have kind of a pinkish tint to the red when using a clearbulb...if a red bulb is used, i dont think you'd have that problem.
Since the taillight is designed for 93-00, and they have seperate bulbs for the brake and turn, and the 01+ the brake/turn are in the same bulb, I added a second bulb to the unused socked in the lamp, and wired it up as a running light.
Both "red dots" are running lights, but the top one is a brake/turn, and the bottom is strictly a running light. Kind of reminds me of a dodge.
