So... I looked all over (under bedliner, underneath...) and do not see anything that will allow the removal of the tailight housings! No 10 mm screws, as I saw other places and nothing in the manual to tell how to do.

Anyone know the secret here?

Was going in there to try out some Halogen backup lamps, to be able to see better when backing (dark tint...) at night. Anyone have experience with these? I am afraid of melting the lenses and having too high a power draw.

Thanks!

Nevermind... The same screws that hold on the bed extender brackets retain the light assemblies. BTW: The 50W halgens (GE I think) are not much brighter than a standard 3156, put out a LOT more heat and are $10 each. Think will try the Sylvania whatevers that clain 20% higher output. Use those for headlamps and they are significantly brighter.

The silverstars are what sylvania makes. that might be your best bet. I just roll the window down enough to use the mirror.

So it's not just me? I skied without sunglasses for way too many years and all I see at night anymore is dark and glare... Will try those. Failing that, might have to go for an under bumper something or other. Thanks for reply.

The under bumper lights will be good. I know that with my tint I just guess when I am backing up

Problem is I pick our youngest up at school and there is a special door you have to use. There are no marked spots and the soccer moms park their SUV's and minivans all OVER the place. Really, it's comical. But, with kids running around between the cars, being able to see is really pretty critical...

I'm having to do the samething
sweet, when I find the right lights I plan on doing it as well. I think that square light just below the bumper or something embedded into the bumper would be best.

Not my truck but a great idea. Seen this done a few time on others...




I really need to do this. I've got 5% tint and smoked out tails. So when I back up if I don't open the rear slider I can't see sh*t!!
