If i get the LED's it might be for the reverse lights cause thats the only thing I really need since my lights are blacked out and at night you can't see the reverse lights from inside the car at all but you can see it from the outside so atleast I can't get a ticket

LED vs Stock

Once they get approved you can see big pictures!!!

Here are pics of my new taillighs. Bought these off ebay from camouracing
http://www.ebay.com/itm/120908537043...84.m1497.l2649
No connection with seller,just for your info. I paid $158 / free shipping.

First, the left one is the new LED and the right is stock. You can see the extra strip of chrome on the ford tail.



Next is with just the lights on



And now with brakes on. Camera blurred due to brightness. Actually can see individual LED lights. Super Bright! If the other drivers can't see you now...they are blind...or texting!!!



This gives you a side by side comparison. What'cha think??

I got these LED tails less than 1 week after buying my 08 SES. they have worked without a hitch. The problem I have is now I have to drag around the factory SES tails as they are just like fresh out of the factory look and condition. I guess they have less than 100 miles on them. I didn't want to trash them so I can use them if the leds fail.

One of my resistors in my LED lights has went bad. I know as the blinker goes too fast. I cant find another resistor to replace it with so I now will use the stock tails again. I cant believe the seller of these tails doesn't have replacement resistors.

They are not for sale I figure someday I will be able to figure out what value the resister was and replace it. The lights still work great its just the turn signal on one side blinks too fast. The register is separate with a plug in wire so it seems it would be easy to replace I just don't know the number for the resister. The resister went bad after 4 years of heavy use. But not 1 led has stoped working
