Have to wait two weeks since they're out of stock :sad 1: but they look good. Cant wait to install these and the 3rd brake light i ordered.

I wish someone would make a set of smoked taillights to match in the future.

I installed the Smoked ones last night with a friends help, very easy install and they look awesome at night and even better in the day with the tinted taillights!

Just one suggestion, the wire clamps that are provided are to big for the wires that the reflectors have... went through 3 of them before we got a good connection when wiring them up as blinkers.

Also, for people installing these on a 11+ year model, we did not have to remove the rear tires to remove the bumper, we just used a 10mm socket to remove the screws that are in the wheel well instead of a screw driver, made the job a lot easier and quicker.

Thank you for the feedback! I have passed the notes along to our engineers to consider for product revisions and to incorporate into the installation instructions.

Can you do a video of them as blinkers?
You bet! I will try to do one tonight if I can.

Just as an FYI, these only work as blinkers when you do not have your lights on. (Only if you have these wired up like the instructions say, to the license plate lights) I always have my running lights on during the day so they are never used as blinkers. I just wired them up as blinkers just to use as Hazards if I ever needed too.

You could wire them differently to not come on with the license plate lights and then wire them as brake lights or as extra blinkers at night, but I wanted to try them as running lights also. So that's why I did them this way.

I may change my mind later and decide to wire them differently, but for the time being I like them.

That and it was an easy wire up since we did not have to drill through anything on my 2012 model since there were some holes already that ran directly to the tail lights.

I would love to get some video of them functioning as blinkers for our product page. If you would be interested in sending some video along, I can hook you up with a little something for your troubles :)

It would be much appreciated!

Never got around to posting pics...

Will doing the video tonight. I have also decided to rewire them to act as extra brake lights and blinkers instead of running lights and blinkers, will be doing that in about two weeks or so. And will also do a video of that as well to show how they work.

We do not typically set-up group buys on new products. We want to wait and see how they sell so we know what we need to maintain our inventory levels. It may be something we would consider down the road.

Are you guys planning an update to the instructions that shows how to wire the lights to the blinkers?
If they are not any time soon I can try to give you a explanation on how to do it. Its pretty simple once you route the wire through.
