Do you like the LED Tail Lights or SES Dark Tint Tail Lights?
I think I like the dark tint SES tail lights better? I like the tinted look and for some reason in some pictures the LED Tails look kinda werid.

Anyone else have more pictures in the daytime, night too?

also another cool thing about the led tails is that they have load resistors already installed, so when i put my switchback bulbs in my projectors upfront i didnt get the rapid flash! cool little extra i think:)

I thought to stop rapid flashing you need 4 resistors. One at each bulb???? That is a great feature then............hmm...

I had ses tails and got led tails a few weeks ago. I love the led tails. Just wish the Chrome was dark like the ses tails.

Yeah I think its the chrome that looks werid on it. The chrome OEM tails look better than the chrome on the LED.

See that is the part I dont like. Is the look, the chrome look, I like the tinted look of the SES tail lights and if you put LED's in the SES it will sorta do the same purpose right.

Not at all. They will look the same as stock but brighter with led bulbs.

The LED tails have different placement of the light. Looks way better and they are about 10x brighter than the stockers. I made a video with one stock and one led tail in to show the differences but the video came out super twitchy for some reason.

Lol that is not how it works.... you need a resistor on the wires going to your switchbacks. You may not have hyperflash but it will affect the longetivity of the bulb.

Haha its not one huge wire running to all of your headlights and tails

I was thinking of doing VHT on my stock tails but now I am thinking of doing SES tails. I like the look and you have all changed my mind (plus I saw some on a car in a parking lot, looked boss as hell). Also, if you have scratches that are not too deep can you sand them out with some fine sand paper?
