If you're looking to just slightly tint your tail lights, there's this stuff called VHT Nightsahde,it comes in a rattle can and you can find at most auto parts stores (Pep Boys, Autozone, etc....) Just clean your tail lights of dirt & grime and spray it on.04 ECSB Custom silver & grey, Soft 8's, BFG KO's, ReadyLift Leveling Kit, Hellwig front sway bar, K&N filter, DeeZee EZ-Down, Rhino liner, Alpine CDE103BT, Rockford 6.5's, 12" V.A.T.

I took my tail lights to a a local paint shop and had them done. They dropped a few drops of black in to the clear and sprayed them.

The only way I have seen it done is the rattle can, you can build up the layers if you want it darker.
