Default Black/Tinted Tail Lights?

I want a pair of black or tinted tail lights? I would prefer to keep my stock ones the way they are instead of tinting or blacking them out. What are the best brands/options to go with?

Lamin-X is a good option and is easily reversible if needed.

ZZ went with Recon taillights. If you decide to tint, mask the reverse light. Tinting the reverse light will pretty much make backing up impossible.

How is it backing up with the reverse lights blacked out? I have a camera and it would suck if I couldn't see anything in it when it's dark. Especially when I'm trying to hook up trailers in the dark quite frequently.

I doubt he can see a thing backing up. LED lights won't even fix that. I love the look, but look over function is a bad idea. Backing up is a constant on a SCREW. They turn like cap going forward.

Mine are definitely dark, but i can actually see just fine. LEDS would absolutely fix any brightness issues you might feel you have. i would recommend going any darker then this simply cause of state laws
