So what exactly are you going to do? Sounds like a good idea but im confused are you going to chop the inside of your lights and mount the semi lights on the inside? Or are you going to shave your tails and mold in some.....

I work at a semi company so i could get whatever lights....a friend of mine actually put in these lights on his nissan

I just bought those led's for my 06 lights on ebay. The mirrored background is hard to find on regular trailer led lights.
