Smoked tail lights. WHY????????

I understand that when you have an all blacked out truck that they match and look great. If I had a show truck and it was all blacked out I would have a set of them to install when the truck was at the show also but. In the day time when it is very sunny out they can be hard to see. I was behind another truck the other day that had some real dark ones on. I almost could not see the brake light action in the middle of the day. I am sure that they are not legal being that dark so if I had not been paying attention and rear ended this pick up then it would have been his fault. Is it really worth it to add that little bit of cool factor? I guess I am the opposite of cool due to the fact that I have 50 red ultra bright LED bulbs in 5 clearance lights pointing rearward. 240 red LEDs in my 4 tail lights and 240 red superbright brake light LEDS. There is no mistaking me if I am in front of you, and have been told by several friends that at night with the foot on the brake at stop lights that the red is soo intense that it is obnoxious. JJ

Not real spectacular to look at. Just 5 clearance lights with 10 superbright LEDs in each. And a total of 4 4inch round tail/ brake lights with 60 superbright LEDs in each light. JJ

I've got smoked RECONs and they are as bright or brighter than the factory, unmodified light that the truck came with. Plus I have RECON lights under the tailgate for more lighting.
