When I paint my truck here in the next month or so, I am probably goin to do the Caddy Taillight coversion. . . I think it is rather new (the kit that is) b/c I found out about it not to long ago. I know that the front end conversion has been out for quite some time now, but I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of them on a finished truck. Oh by the way its for a 93'. The kit I found was for 88-98 so yeah, i dont know if they have one for the 99+, Im assuming they probably do. Let me know if you have a link to pictures and your imput is also welcome. :bowtie:

im fixing to do that also. got the lights just need the kit. Go to SirMichaels.com and theres the kit with pics of different lights on different trucks. Theres the 88-93 or somthin like that, that are parrallel and the 94-98(i think) have a curve at the top that if it curves right its the left tail, vice versa. I got the lights from a local pic-a-part and were really cheap.....10$ a pair and all i had to do was polish the chrome and wipe down the lenses. Compared to the 400 a set you find em on sirmikes. And all i have to buy are the buckets and light fillers so a total of about 150$(im doing labor) It will be more expensive if you get a shop to do it.

Caddy Tail Lights are pretty common, but still one of the nicest mods, with LEDs right up there. Heres a few pictures of them on an OBS truck.

Wow, I didnt really notice how far they acctually are sunk into the bucket. I am really looking into doing it, but I have to see who has the best price on the buckets and relay's and such. I will definitly get some pictures when I get everything and get all of it on. If anyone eles can find some pictures let me know, thanks guys

I'm sure you could have them shallower, but putting them in deep (frenching) looks badass :worship:

he used the 94-96...im glad he did, because everything else hes done ive seen, and when i heard caddy tail lights i thought "wow an s10 with bags and caddy tails, who woulda thought" but the caddy tails were diff then i had seen and they arent sunk in the back of the truck like 2 inches...only enough so they fit to the truck

the only way they should be done... having them frenched in. Any other way just looks cheap and a waste of perfectly good lights. They need to be sunk in a good 2-3 inches.

If you want them upside down for the "fang" look:gay: :LOL: Those tails look good on the orange truck, but I dont know about the suspension work, that shop is known to do some crappy work :imo

i think LEDs in teh rollpan looks a lot better than the lights, but if theyre done good and right, the caddy lights do look badass.
