Hey all! I apologize if this has been covered before but I've been searching for a bit trying to find some tail lights that I love...I'm looking for some that don't have the raised bumps where the bulbs are (if that makes sense) and LED would be nice. The closest ones I've seen to what I'm looking for are spec D I'll try to find a link...

Anyway, it'd be awesome if y'all could post some pics of your aftermarket tails. I know there are some sick TBs out there!

Here are the ones I was looking at

Mine are IPCW. I have a decent set, but some have been known to have LEDs go out.
Picture 1 is before tinting. Picture 2 is after.
(personally, I would recommend Depo instead)

Nice! I was looking at those as well. Those are some of the better looking sets IMO but I'm unsure of how they'd look because mine is white

I've got the Depo tails, in black (they also come in chrome and carbon fiber) with the star LED reverse lights. Since my truck is silver, you can get a decent idea how they'd look on yours.

The come in different finishes, so you can choose one that looks right to you. BTW, here are the Depo tails.
I think they look as good as the IPCW and I haven't seen as many reported problems with them. (and I think they're less expensive)

edit - and, of course, Carlton beat me in posting pics of them.

Yeah, they are less expensive, otherwise I would have gotten the ones you have back in the day.

I had to buy sockets and do a little wiring to make these quads.

If he will sell it I want it. Ive looked for a year calling junk yards all over. I bought one online last January only to be refunded with an email no longer in stock. Not a single chevy dealer in the US has one.

I am at work right now so I will post a link to my build thread, my tails are about half way down.

Edit. Figured I would just post the pics from the thread to save time.

Figured I would add the Avalanche 3rd brake light for good measure. They are just some ebay lights. I did not like the full chrome so I opted for the black. The chrome on the LED portion actually makes for a good reflector. Also added the spider reverse lights, only thing I have seen brighter is the CREE LED bulbs.

Thanks for the input so far!! Lots of good looking options. I'm def gonna need a LED 3rd brake light now

I couldn't make up my mind on tails yet so it looks like I'm buying a new double din. So the tails are gonna have to wait a few weeks....anyway keep the pics coming. :thumbsup:

I was google searching the other night and ran across an Envoy with Asscender (?) tails and thought it looked sick. I'm a TB noob so I've still got lots to learn but to me the Envoy has smoother lines and looks pretty good when done right.

I like those assenders a lot. I search the internet every now and then but seems they are difficult to get. If I found them I'd change them in a heartbeat...

Reece are those ANZO tails? I was kinda lookin at those too.

I did a little research last night. I might try to make my own lenses. So far I've seen some good lookin stuff but haven't seen exactly what I'm looking for. Plus I like to be different :biggrin:

There is a vendor on tbssowners that are making these. The original oem ones are hard to find. Ive seen oem ones (like shawns) sell for $150. That's stupid crazy for a piece of plastic.

They aren't ANZO, I liked the look of these keeping it close to factory but led. They are bright also :thumbsup:
