    Default Smoked headlights and tail lights

    Hey guys I'm new to the forum but just recently purchased a 2007 black z71 extended cab... Put a leveling kit on it already but really interested in getting blacked out head and tail lights. Anyone have idea on where I can get them? Want HID bulbs too... Heard a lot of people tinting them but don't want to reduce brightness of the lights. Appreciate any responses!

    If you dont want to tint them go to ebay, they have great looking blacked out headlights/tail lights and you can buy them with the HID conversion kit. I blacked my tail lights out myself and I also blacked out my headlights but like you said they lost some of the brightness so I ordered HID black headlights and I haven't had one complaint.

    Welcome to the site and congrats on the new truck. Search the site for some answers to your questions. A few of us, me included, have used vvme.com for HIDs and have been very happy with the results. There's a real good write-up by Rotaryenginepete on installing. For blacking out your lights, there are a few write-ups for using the spray can VHT Nightshade. It works real well, and you can make the lights as dark as you want. I'm considering covers for my headlights so I can remove them if I don't like the result.

    Hey godawgs thanks for the quick reply! Yeah others have told me to order off eBay as well... Going for the all black look so I'm a little particular in the way it turns out and also want good quality product. Any other ideas? Doing tires and rims soon as well as black front bowtie...
