Talking For anyone wanting blacked/smoked out head/taillights

so i, like a lot of you guys have been wanting to black out my taillights and headlights. i didnt want to paint the either of them due to the fact that i love in california and will get pulled over all the time. i tossed around the idea of tossing my headlights in the oven and painting all the chrome black. however i never ended up doing so due to the fact that i didnt want to risk them not sealing back together properly and ending up with condensation in my headlights.

so, after months of contemplating what to do i ran across the best option IMO. looking on the auto ventshades website and searching for any products for my truck i found taillight covers in smoked, or blacked out. and headlight covers in smoked. this past saturday i was at my local 4 wheel parts and had them look up pricing. they reatail for $79 per set. 4 wheel parts was having their march madness sale and i was able to pick up both the blacked out tails, and smoked out heads for $59 per set shipped to my door.

i was also told that these covers stick on with double sided tape, however i want something more removable so im thinking something along the line of velcro. unless any of you guys have some better ideas??

here are the links to the products.

HEADLIGHTS

TAILLIGHTS

they should show up this thursday and i will install them ASAP and get pictures up for you guys.




P.S. - this is part of the process to black out my black FX4. do you guys think i should keep my FX4 off road decals on my bed sides, or get out the hair dryer and ditch them??

thanks
-mike

Not a big fan of the covers. I like the Recon LED Smoked Tailights, even though they are $300, they are bright and look good. I am going to try and smoke the reflector in my head light by doing the oven deal, or have someone do it that knows what they are doing. I would probably screw my lights up

You can cook your head lights in the oven to split them open and paint the inside part that is orange in order to make it smoked looking. I think it looks more professional than a black cover over your head light that is plastic. And the Recon tail lights are LED and very bright. They also match the color of the smoked cab, mirror, and 3rd break light they offer. I like things on my truck to match, but thats just me...

I tinted my headlights and tail lights. I put a little black paint in with clean coat and sprayed them. Came out great and here in Texas i have never been messed with. I would take the sticker off to its a much cleaner look.
