Nice man! Thos pics don't do any justice though.... It really makes a huge difference from the ugly stocker!

Glad you're happy with it!

I think it goes in this order

Shane
Trevor
Jordan
Jason
Justin (Soon)

And any others I'm missing running the SD 3rd mod!

Looks good, especially if you're tying to keep that OE look.

I have the smoked LED 3rd brake light, but the clear lens matches my setup.

Red part of the lense is more clear, and the reflectors are a little different, resulting in a brighter third light. ANd...it's ALOT better looking compared to the regular one... When I first put mine one, went over to Trevors to compare. Mine was significantly brighter and more vibrant red if i remember correctly. Both were still running the 906 incandescants.

I think it looks clean and gets super good reception right there. I love it actually. People always ask what that is... lol

I've only seen it on select 06's (FX4's SCREW's so far) and 08 and 09... Don't really find many 07's anywhere... Even then, it's not on every 08 and 09 I've seen at a JY.
