Finished my tails

for anyone who cares, I took the 2 bulb setup that my 07 had and spliced in another socket (194 socket size | 921 bulb) and at 1st I had an issue doing it like Shane (FX4Wannabe) did his, on my truck Ford decided to run the passenger side wires to the 3rd brake light so if I spliced into it when I hit my signals the 3rd brake light would always be on and flash, to me that looked kinda lame; so I went back and just made them into running lights, I think it looks very good here's some pictures with no flash to show how nice they show up, thanks for the help guys

Looks good. If I ever get around to doing it I would like to have on as a brake light and they other as a turn signal.

Looks really good. Think maybe that side light would look ok as a side marker light? Maybe make it flash opposite of the other light, like the newer Chevy's. Just a thought.
