No I haven't. Some people don't like them because they are from "back in the day" But I think they look fine on our trucks. Idk?

I have seen these on couple of rangers and they do look good. I was wondering how to get them on and if there is any risk of them falling off?

I'm not sure, but i think they snap on, and snap off. I do not think there will be a risk of them falling out if they are installed properly.....

I have carbon fiber tail light covers for my truck sitting in my room. They attatch with heavy duty velcro and were on my truck for over a year, they will not fall off lol. I think I will be putting them back on soon, I was very partial to that look.

i had the covers before, loved them and so did some other a**hole, i had them on forever and loved the look. it was a little dark backing up but other then that their great, its a pretty nice ticket up here if you still have them on when it starts to get dark out though! had a couple warnings

I like the covers better because they are completely black and if you dont like them you can always just take them off. With nightshade, im not all that familiar with it, but i doubt it just wipes off.



I also had black headlight covers but since got the black corner headlights. I never had a problem with either falling off.
