They move the reverse lights to the bottom to give the lights a cleaner look. Look them up on AM!

For all of you who have a 2011+ but love the 13 tailights. I just did a custom job on mine to make them look similar to the 13's. what do you guys think?

Plasti dip is good too, but if you've ever worked with it, it's a pain trying to get straight lines, when you pull the tape the plastidip likes to come up with it. The VHT just gave it a cleaner look

Razor the edges of the tape lightly when getting ready to remove after plasti dip. Keeps it where you want it.

You could always try to matte black surrounds from AM. They aren't exactly the same but I personally thought they made a huge difference in mine. Especially if you have a blackout panel. I think these only cost about $100 bucks.

Thanks!

If anyone buys them I would suggest adding more 3M tape to them. From AM they do not have much on the pieces that run up and down between the lights. It allows the plastic to raise up off the light. I added tape the full length of those and it solved that problem.

I think it's a creative solution. It looks good. I'll bet it's a good conversation starter at car meets too.

Thank you. I'm sure it could be done better maybe with a vinyl, but for VHT it looks pretty good. Haha
