Cheap Junk Yard find

So I went to one of the many junk yards an our area in search of newer F-250 parts. So I went to the first junk yard and it was an special back lot with nothing but wrecked 08-10 F-250s. Most of the Trucks had the mirrors on em at 65 a piece. I wanted em but dut to some errors I wasnt able to get em. So instead I found some 08-12 tailights at 40 for both. So I cleaned em up, and sprayed a light coat of black spray paint and this is what I got.





I made the reverser light hole bigger so I could fit the bulb in, and its an tight snug fit,but I got to make the reverser light lead longer to reach the hole.

You could make a small fortune by stripping those '08+ trucks and listing parts here.
