I will say that they look much more at home on your rig than they do on my neighbor's late model Caddy CTS.

And once they were installed.



Hey man I was planning on getting these and I was wondering if you bought any different actual bulbs for the lights, and if so which ones. I plan on ordering the actual lights off ebay but i don't know if I need to get any bulbs or if the ones that come with it are crappy. Thanks!

They are LED tails, the only part that you have to reuse is the revers bulb. So if you want to upgrrade those at the same time I would highly suggest a set of 7W Cree bulbs.
