    Default need some reference pics of black headlights

    so, im on the fence of either clear or black headlights. because, if i tint my altezza tails on the truck now, i wanna do a black headlight. if i put stockers back in i want to do a clear headlight. so im just looking for a reference pic(s), because i dont know if its been done and im kinda iffy on doing a black headlight on the pewter.





    also, does anyone have any pics of tinted tails on these trucks? i know, i know, search function. but i wasnt able to find anything.

    IMO sell altezza tails, go with OEM 03-06 Chevy taillights and clear headlights/corner lenses

    i would go with the 03-06 tails, but im not good at all with wiring. although i would love to do 03-06 tails and yeah I am leaning more and more towards clear headlights.

    I have the 03+ tails on my 99 GMC and they look so much better. I have clear headlights on my truck that have a dark gray look.

    And to change the tails all you'd have to do is shave a little bit of the socket which is what I did with a knife.

    As I mentioned in your other thread, you only have to do a Hard Wire, for the One Extra Bulb that the 03" and up Taillights have, if you don't want that extra bulb to work, then you can just use your Taillight Wiring Harness, and as rielyjr16 has mentioned, would just need to trim some of the socket, for the bulb to fit.

    No worries..............I should have been a little more clear, bottom line, its a easy swap to do......and when you get the New Clear corners on, post-up some pics.

    Here's my truck with the 03's.....
