yes there is. OEM is a better quality light but not enough to make them worth $70 more a light.

Don't really see why everyone's making a big deal out of what you paid for them. You said you paid too much, but you didn't want to wait. Regardless what you payed they will look better than the 04 tails.

I paid $70 shipped on here for OEM ones used.

Patience is a virtue. You truck was perfectly happy with your 01-05 tails, it could have waited for you to find a good deal.

$204 is a lot of moolah for two pieces of plastic.

Certifit is usually Depo brand, brah. You would never notice the difference once installed.

idky your getting ripped on, oem parts as clean mods ftmfw. $100 aint bad at all especially from the stealership. ill await pics of the tinted lights before i judge, nightshade is terrible looking, but a light smoke to give the lights a dark oem look is possible at a shop so it could be win.

His truck is the only one that Ive seen on the site that is completely murdered, and I thought it was pretty cool.

It will be interesting to see what it looks like.

Surprised you are selling the wheels, they look great.. You can have black wheels on a black truck without being murdered out. You must be planning on getting something different though...
