OBS Third Brake Light

Everything on the exterior of my truck is clean and newish except for one thing, my third brake light.
So I need a little help on deciding what direction to go in the way of 3rd brake lights.
Would I be able to fit an 05-08 brake light on my truck?
Or whats the best looking 3rd brake light that would match my truck?

Hmm I wonder why cruise control wouldn't work with LEDs?
Anyways I'm still looking for a 3rd brake light that is clear on the ends and red in the middle, like the stock ones.
Would a brake light off of a NBS work on my truck?

I have the LED third brake light, and my cruise works fine... IDK why anyone would say that... I mean, they wont interfere with the brake signal for the cruise shut off...




And the cab lights are twice as bright... Just make sure you get the GOOD LED one, there are two versions floating out there.

Ooh dang I like it!
I wonder what it will look like on my truck since I have all stock lights, would it blend well?
The LED looks really cool at night, great pics.

Thanks!

I think it'll look just fine, especially since your truck is white! I had mine on with stock tails for a long time. I just hate the amber turn signals... You need to ditch them too lol
