Time for some change!

I am wanting to change the look of my truck a bit. I dont want any big change just something small. Im thinking lights will refresh it some. Do yal think smoked cab, mirror, third brake and tail lights will look good on my truck its bright red and a good bit of chrome. Im just not sure if the dark lights is what im looking for kinda thinking they may clash with the headlights what do yal think?

Here are my thoughts since I have the same color. Smoke the roof clearance lights using the VHT night shades. I wouldn't go too dark though. Just by doing that they will match your mirror lights because they are darker anyway. Personally, I won't be tinting my tail lights or 3rd brake light because I like the way the red lenses blend with the paint. However, I am considering buying LED tails and 3rd brake light. Keeping red lenses, of course.

You could also add lights...

Thanks! I used the running light kit from Harbor Freight. I simply drilled holes in the metal and used some machine screws, washers, and nuts to hold them in place. You could also use self tapping metal screws if you wanted.

No, no corrosion problems at all so far. The lights aren't fully sealed and sometimes I can see condensation in them depending on how much rain we've had. As you probably know it is quite wet here in WA. However, during the winter the roads don't get salt where I am. I was just under the truck running some other wires on Monday and the wires for the running lights were dirty, but other than that they looked like I had just put them up.
