L.E.D 3rd Brake Light

I just bought one! I got it at a pretty good price I think. $63 shipped.

It's basically the same as the one Underdog sells for $89! I'm so happy. Hopefully it comes soon. It'll complement my L.E.D taillight bulbs.

The smoked lens looks great. I can't wait for it to get here. I've got the ugly red and white 3rd brake light now that I got in place of my all red one. This will look good!

Eventually I'm going to get a set of the smoked L.E.D taillights themselves, but for now L.E.D bulbs will do.

Well once I receive the 3rd brake light I'll be sure to get some of everything lighted up. Right now I have the 63 L.E.D brake and reverse lights. Those reverse lights are some bright suckers! I was worried the L.E.D wouldn't do well in a reflector housing meant for an incandescent bulbs but the light output is pretty good.

This is without the L.E.D 3rd brake light. These are both the 63 L.E.D bulbs from ebay.

Looks good!

However, everyone knows it will light up good at night, how does it look on a sunny day?

I'll have to snap some more pictures when I get off work today. It's actually pretty bright still. Hopefully the 3rd brake light makes it here fast!

I got the 3rd brake light today! I haven't had a chance to take any pictures yet though. All I can tell you is it's bright as all get out!
