Anyway, I don't see how this would be too hard once you get the light open/apart. There's quite a few LED aftermarket units on eBay, but everything I've read on them say that the LEDs go out after a month or two. If you get quality LEDs in there, I think it would look awesome

I noticed it dripping after a automatic car wash actually on the driver side rear door sill. tried to get it covered under warranty but they denied my claim. Ford offered a updated high mount lense for over 100$, since I want a darker lenses I will get one for a fx4 or something. Thanks.

Yes and you can clean them off with distilled water and a clean white towel. Then blow dry, Ive done mine 3 times now.
