I'm looking to have 5 percent taillight tint installed onto the 11 v6 tail lights . Can anyone advise what LED back up lights and brake lights should I buy for a much brighter light output. Also, I checked American Muscle and unless missing something, I didn't see them selling these light bulbs . Can anyone advise a good company to buy these led light bulbs from and any advice. I'm concerned the light output will be not good with the factory stock tail light and reverse light bulbs. Much thanks

Thats some pretty dark tint!! I have 20% with stock bulbs and i can clearly still see the red during the day and night. I would recommend going like 10% tint not 5%. I do have LED reverse lights tho. They are awesome i got them off ebay and unlike autozone ones my friend has mine shine clearly throughout the clear panel. The autozone ones make one single bright spot. Ill try and take a picture at night tonight.

Okay sweet. Thanks bro. Lethal performance had a pair reverse led lights for 15 dollars. Plus 10 dollars for resistor needed. I have no idea if the LED lights are better than the ones on ebay that you are talking about

Sure no problem but just so u know u will need to splice in a resister to fix the hyper flashing. U can get them from autozone and the actual LED turn signals too. Thats where i got them.

AM tail light tint. Idk why everyone hates it. It's clear as can be when brakes are pressed or even on. I think I've seen just led reverse lights
