    Hi guys!

    Im new to GMFS but have been on FSC for some time now. I have a slight addiction to LEDs and really enjoy retrofitting tail lights...All my projects plug into the stock locations using stock wiring. Please excuse my picture vomit ;)

    Here is a few of my projects. Enjoy:

    There are (2) 10w LEDs in each tail light for reverse, running at about 1A each. I will post comparison pics with HID when I get some time :) I'm curious to see how the LEDs will do...they are easily 3X as bright as stock!

    Materials for the reverse set up cost right around $35-40, but the downside is labor. Depending on the tail light stubborness, they can take 30+ minutes to get apart each which would put the cost well above a cheap 35W HID kit or a set of V-LED plug-ins. I'd say a safe bet on a pair of 03+ tails for reverse only would be $75-90 (retrofitting, installation and labor).
