Turn Signal Lenses

Im starting to get the front end of my JK looking the way I want it, but want to put smoke lenses on the turn signals. Ive seen $120 LED assemblies, but dont really think the turn signals deserve over a c-note.

Anybody know where to get (if they even exist) smoke out lenses that work with the factory assemblies? I wouldnt mind the whole assembly with the black lense either.

Thats what I'm talking bout! Just saved around 190 bucks after shipping cause I can do the side markers too. You think Blacked Tail lights would look goofy? Dont wanna get carried away, though.

Thanks!!

I was thinking about doing the rear lights also but am not to sure about that. I saw a picture of this on the turn signals once. I will see if I can find it.

Read this thread and SaharaBlackNo1 has the Jeep with the spray on compared to the LED. Post #9 for picture.

good info! missed that thread. SaharaBlackNo1 has a pretty sweet set up going on there. Mine is Red Rock but I'm trying to smoke out the lights, do the grill black and a highrock bumper with a lightbar kind of like the one he has.

I want all accessories to be black (gas door, hinges, tail gate cover, etc.) Just doing all the cheap/easy stuff first.

Thanks for pointing that out.

I have my jeep blacked out (to include painting the muffler with Bar B Que paint) I used the VHT nightshades and posted some on the "what have you done to your jk today" thread on post # 568

The side markers are a PITA to get out but doable lol

I tinted the rear lights too but am going to hit them up again so they will be alittle darker and am also thinking of hitting up the turn signals with one more coat
