Headlight mod on 06+ tails

I've read around that its not possible to do although they look like the F150 tails. to the people who tried and said it can't be done, you're wrong

Ive seen them done. Its a nice subtle touch if you ask me.

You just need a lot of patience when getting them apart.

Did you do some Pedro?

Interesting. I'd like to see this. I don't want to nightshade my tails but would do this. Would help break all the red up on the *** end.

Haha i technically already pulled it off. Just need to paint and seal. The hard part is getting THe lens off. I have an hour and fifteen minutes just takin the lens off and another hour masking. Headlight mod is a joke compared to this lol didn't expect it to be harder
