    Where did you get the LED lights from? Are they the really bright ones?

    ...or you can do what I did and just make some. Just takes some scrap sheet metal, tin snips, and a hole saw. I've even got a "no-go" (as in, don't put the hole here, move it inboard a little) template. I think Keith made his own, too. Noone in ATL is going to have stock tail lights at this pace. What happened, junk yard finally run out?

    When you cut look at the area behind where the light will pop in. My 1st was too far over, that's how I got the bad one. I also added a side marker in the upper, forward corrner of the filler plate. I used one of the round lights that are secured in the same manner as the tail lights you are using. I have yet to break any of the trailer style lights. I went through several stock ones when running the stock bumper. I think the bumper I have now would have saved some of them, but deff not all of them (I have a dent in my filler plate).
