They do look great, I got the black ones so they look blacked out during the day and shine red leds and white leds for backup. The tail lights were easy to install. Just used the factory harness installed a resistor that we got apart from the tail lamps since they do not come with any. That gives you little blue clips that cut into the wire and hold it sealed. I got this one - http://shop.poisonspyder.com/LED-Res.../41-04-650.htm
The only problem we ran into was where to mount the heat sink which is required to keep the resistor from getting too hot. We ended up buying a pack of small steal L brackets used to hang shelves and drilled the heat sink to that mount it then used industrial magnets on other side of the bracket to stick right to the metal inside Jeep. Worked great since the wires on the resistor weren't that long so you had to mount it pretty close to the tail light itself.
Overall pretty straight forward upgrade that looks great. Also keep an eye on amazon that is where I got the IPCW Black Taillamps for $218 + shipping. Which was the best deal I could find like what the exact same thing on Quadratec was $329 + shipping.
