FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

Well I've finally decided to offer my services/ideas. If anyone is interested I will be retrofitting the stock tail lights with LED's. Now they are clear LED's, so if you want to do them with the LTZ tails you can while still having them appear clear. These things are BRIGHT and give the bland rear end a menacing look, kind of like the G35 aggressive styling. Turn around time is typically 24 hours from when I receive the tail lights, if you want to purchase a set it will be a little extra. Here are the prices, if anyone is interested Ill post up pics later:

$150 + S&H: You ship headlights, I retrofit, you pay shipping back
$150 + Cost of Tails + S&H Back: I will help you locate a set, purchase, retrofit, and ship out to you.

There is no price difference for LS/LT tails and LTZ tails, and I typically only accept Paypal but money orders will also be accepted (can ship with tail lights).

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

Yea Im at school currently, I've got some pics on the camera Ill be posting up as soon as I get home. I get looks from everyone and honestly when I step on my breaks I probably light up a good 2-300+ feet in a shade of red. I think this is how the tails should have been made from the factory, does something for the bland rear-end!

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

It's very hard to capture the LED's as they're too bright for the camera and when I use flash they look to dim but believe me these things are BRIGHT. All these pics were taking with parking lights on, so not full power.

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

Very nice. If I could afford it I would do it. They would look sweet on some LTZ tails.

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

Thanks guys! Anyone have any tips on trying to get a clearer shot lol? Im going to try to take some pics tomorrow in the morning without flash and see if it could catch them better. Pics really don't give them any justice.

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

I have always had good luck with some side angle shots for HID's or maybe a shot of how much they light up into the dark in the yard. A side angle should show the individual LED's better. I use my point and shoot camera for lighting shots with the flash off and the camera on auto.

I was curious, how many LED's are in each light? Also, does the harness have to be changed on the vehicle at all or is it plug and play?

Re: FS: Custom LED Tail Lights

24 LED's and completely 100% plug and play. Theres a small 6" harness that goes from your main harness that you plug the light bulb in, I modify that so it simply becomes plug and play and does not effect the main harness in any way.
