    Depot and TYC are the 2 common companies that make oem looking replacement light housings. Quality is hit or miss, much less consistent and controlled the actual OEM. Personally I but brand new 2014-2019 Toyota housings on my 2011.

    Kustom54Lighting is probably the only company I would use for aftermarket tail lights. They're expensive but completely customizable.

    Yeah I just took a look at that. Those are Retrofitters, Im def staying away from that cuz
    1) Ish gets super expensive
    2) Most times, they want you to send em your OEMs OR they use low quality after markets (so they can capitalize on their up charge)
    3) Takes forever

    I heard of em before and kinda thought about it for the headlight too but eh. I saw good things about DEPO also TYC but what I have seen is

    TYC lights are the same as the 14s but the DEPO Ones are Blacked out so I kinda want that.

    F it imma message em on instagram I see they got pics there

    Ok those look nice. I'd say jump on em if the price is right. Think I prefer those over Kustom54..

    Looked at these awhile ago, but they didn't have them in stock. Still waiting for the email from them to tell me they are.

    Does it take away the chrome look from the top outer side. Getting a nightshade and I don't like the chrome on the taillight.

    No it’s stood out like the rails and ugly valances I just noticed again today and it’s the last part of that.

    Had signs put on my back windows and after that the lights didn’t standout as bad. At a distance they look like a blob of clear plastic.

    Yes Think the stock lights look awful. The chrome looks silly.
