new tail lights

I'd like to get new tail lights. Has anyone ever heard anything good or bad about these and if they'd even look good or not? lol

Those appear to be APC 00+ Ranger tails....well...probably not APC brand, i'd call them APC_wannabe's. Something to be said about aftermarket tails....they suck. I've had 3 differnt aftermarket tails in the past. All never fit right. All had moisture buildup problems. BUT...I did put a set of APC brand euro's on the 2wd about 4 years ago...no moisture problems...no issues whatsoever. Go name brand, not ebay no name brand. Just givin' you a heads up on my experience with aftermarket tails.

IMO...I think all Euro, Altezza, JDM-Yo Tailights are all ugly on all vehicles. They just look cheap and tackey, and yes they do have problems with fitment and leakage. But if you like them then go for it. I'd rather spend the $50 on something better then that.

yeah man no problem. i will tell you this though....i paid $40 for them with $8 shipping (?) cant remember on the shipping. there is a TINY HAIRLINE scratch, I emphasize TINY, because it is not noticeable unless you put your eyes right up to it. I was aware of this before I bought them and I had no problem with it. Problem is, is that I have a Mazda not a Ford, so they didn't fit. I'll give them to you for $20 + shipping on your end. Just let me know.
