They won't stop harrassing you until you put either factory ones back in or something clear with correct bulbs. They are trying to make an example out of you. If you want them to stop harrassing you I would go with clear ones with a very light tint coating.

I have never seen LED taillights for our trucks. You can purchase aftermarket housings and install LED bulb assemblies in them. There is a company that makes an expandable LED bulb assembly but I can't remember their name off hand.

I had a simmilar problem a few years ago. I had used severall thin coats of black paint to black out my tail lights. You could still see the lights fine but a cop pulled me over ad tryed to give me a ticket for them... I decided to get balsy with him figuring i had nothing to loose since i just moved into this province. I started to argue with them that their was nothing wrong with them and that is how i had purchased them. He then started to argue with me that they were not leagle... I then pointed out to him why to they say DOT on them then dosent that mean they are leagle? Boy did his fase turn red..hehe ... he ended up getting me on having my drive and pasanger door windows tinted... Had em limo black at the time... So i agreed to take it off if he didnt give me a ticket for it and forget the incident about the lights what he originally pulled me over for.. Took the tint off and wated a month and put new tint back on just not as dark. Figured what do i have to loose no ticket no record of me being pulled for it..LOL

i save this thread from the fte forums from a few weeks ago because i was considering doing leds in my dash.

Anybody running LED's - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums


you gotta make sure any bulb you buy has the proper resistors an what ot in them to make sure that they dont confuse the truck to thing a bulb is burnt out.

SUPER BRIGHT LEDS - LED Lights & Accessories has quality bulbs, that you simply match to your old bulb and style.

DO NOT USE EBAY LED BULBS. ive heard of people using cheap bulbs and their tranny began to shift weird when applying brakes because the amount of load that the lights were putting on the system was less than it should be
