Icon6 New Tail Lights

I was just wondering if anyone has used these Tail lights before and are they bright? I broke one on my Ranger and I thought I'd replace it with these instead of stock ones.

I was looking on Ebay and I was thinking the ones with the chrome backing but then I seen these and my Ranger is black so I thought they would look good but I'm just wondering how bright they are.

They look sharp. I like them. I bet they'd be plenty bright for you. There's alot of trucks around here running those type of tails, but I haven't seen that style with the black background. I think those a pretty sharp. I say Git-R-Done!

They looks ok to me and they should be just as bright as your stockers.

it looks good and I think the black would look great. I haven't seen a ton of them, though.

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.

you will have to convert to a 2 bulb setup.

basically you get a trailer plug adaptor and splice into it.
theres a how-to on here.
