beware of cheap quality....
I like the look of aftermarket lighting as well as the next guy. But i've had literally crappy luck with them. It's all supposed to be just like factory, but it isn't I don't think. Hey LilRed did you look your APC's over real well? I went with APC's on my old chevy for tail lights, parking and side markers, but I got tired of the not so perfect fit and apparent low quality. APC should stand for All Parts'r Crap! The tail lights never fit right and had a large gap between the bed and the light that I could never get to go away no matter what I did. One of the parking lights fogged up sometimes and took as long as 3 days to go away. The side markers fit decent but one of those fogged up too. I got some sweet projection headlights for it but by then I was sick of that APC junk and got a different brand that I can't remember the name of. And they were the worst of all the aftermarket lighting I put on! Never got them aimed right, I had to modify and cut up so much behind the grille. I finally got them to sit in the grille flush but like I said, never got proper aim. Thank goodness for auxillary lights. True they were for my chevy, and I have yet to buy any for my PSD. However I think that i'm going to get the 05+ head lights cuz I know they'll look good and should fit without or with minor modification. As for tails i'll buy some at a show, and install them there that way if they suck i'll take them back and try again....
Oh by the way Ebay is a great place to get parts from.
