It's not at night that it matters, it's DURING THE DAY!!!!!

I too would have taped off the reverse lights. I like them bright when I'm backing up. Plus it makes them look better.

They are pretty damn dark too. I have two coats on my Bronco and three on my Ranger and haven't had any problems with johnny law.

^^You're also NOT in Burbank! lol.








duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude......THIS should be your next mod!!





In all seriousness, niteshades when done smartly and in moderation, look and perform just fine. BUT...90% of the shaded folks out there literally black them out. This my reasoning for being a hardcore niteshade hater. All this coming from a former 2 or 3 coat niteshade rocker!

and here's some proof...

I posted it due to what seems to be a common occurance when things get heated.....people saying I hate all niteshades and that I'm a total hater. Well...I'm self proclaimed a niteshade hater AND a former owner. lol. Just showing proof because sometimes, I gotta show it anyway. lol.

Thats why when i tinted mine I didn't do the CHMSL. It's stock and unmodified. Sure some people might notice that its still red, but most never say anything.

Plus you can still see red in my lights, even during the day. (lights off some sun on one side but you get it... yes i keep the tailgate locked now lol)

blah....won't change my opinion...


idk....maybe it's that I've got the last 6 years without needing them when I go wheelin'? and if they do get coated, I got that case of water in the toolbox and my hand as a rag...

oh....and i'm soooo past 'muddin'. lol
