If you want your third brake light tinted as well you can paint it with VHT niteshades, and then clear coat it, and it will match the tails perfectly. I noticed your front LED turn signals dont seem to light up very well, you might want to consider switching to the style that has the LED's mounted radially (in different directions). Otherwise, looks good.

thanks for the input.my buddy is tinting his taillights here pretty soon so im going to throw him a 20 and have them paint mine as well.and as for the leds.they are the ones that have them radially.they have them on the front,sides and on the back as well.camera isnt one of the best but at night it actually lights up the whole thing.just kinda hard to capture on a camera.thank you for the input tho like i said

o why yes i know all about that.that is the reason i got rid of my old truck.they said if they say it on the streets again it would get towed because i had a built 6.0 in it with nitrous.they didnt like me too much.

as for the roof rack, a custom one is slowly coming together as i type this.its a roof rack/spare tire holder/light bar

Get rid of the headlights! Blue lighting is always a big no-no, and you gotta be real careful with the red. Truck looks great, just lose the blue lights and it'll be good for a long time. Oh, and when I saw that wreath I immediately though you're from Texas

They tend to dislike guys that can outrun them... in a truck!

Nice ride!!

yeah your lights are fine....you cant have red lights in the front, makes you look like a cop of fire department or something like that...

i got a buddy with a 1970 K10 pick up with a light up wreath but its not that big...

sweet cant wait to see the roof rack! i love the roof rack look... but i would HATE to get your tires up or down from it...

Yes, wreath lights currently (if you have them), but not only - it was more of a general warning really, that in case you wanna add more lights in places where they usually don't belong you may wanna stay away from blue and red.
