thoughts wanted

ok my GF wants to get me some 08 up style LED tail lights. I'm just not sure what color to go with clear, smoked, or red. I will be putting a white strip down the center of my truck when I get the money. please give me your thoughts on what color LED tail lights would look best on my truck.

I'd go with a smoked lens. I've never been a fan of the clear ones..

Call me over cautious. But making your taillights darker is just not a good idea. I cant figure in heavy thick fog, in the middle of a dark night that I would be happy that the tail end of my truck is darker than it should be...

The led ones he's looking at are still super bright with the smoked tint. Tinting the stock 99-07 ones do get too dark sometimes. 08s aren't as bad..

What do your local laws state about light colors? I know in MD, they are illegal. Not that you would get pulled over for them, but I don't like to give anyone a reason. Just a thought.

I had the black housing Anzo tail lights on my last truck with the clear lenses. They were so bright I would get flashed by people behind me when I hit the brakes. I smoked the lenses just a little so it wasn't annoying or dangerous to people behind me.
