They come on those trucks. I had a pair but I sold them. IMO the tails are ugly as hell go back to the 06 tails!

The talis are ok, Better than most aftermarket lights I've seen. But the rest of the truck (save the tailgate) has a really great and mean look. I think silver is starting to grow on me.

I like the tails. The clear lens in the middle almost loosk like a sets of eyes squinting. I assume they are LEDs. I wish I could tint my Ranger that dark. Here we can only tint 27% unless it is an SUV. Police must be able to read your license through the tint or it is considered too dark.

I like the truck! What tires are those? I know they're good years, but I absolutely don't recognize them!




Little suggestion: You can tweak that bumper back into shape. Loosen the bolts that bolt the bumper to that outside reinforcements, tweak that side in question back into shape, then tighten those bolts back up. Then, you can close the bumper to grille gap by loosening the 4 bolts on the front of the frame, adjust, tighten. Would clean the truck up immensely.

looks good, how does the 15 over the factory tint compare to the 5 on the side windows as far as darkness?

Looks good. Only thing I would do is put a light tint on the tails.
