    Well i put on these new tails today, the fit and functionality is perfect, not sold on the level of 3D they are, but im gona run em for a bit and see how they hold up, i do like the way they light up, they are only for the 07-08 rams at the moment (havent seen them for the 02-06 rams yet) but the way the parking lights are on them, they go well with the headlights i have on the truck, after some testing i may just smoke them and see if they look any better that way...

    Here are the lights im running up front for those who dont know, like i said the parking light function on the tails will compliment the headlights, i just have to get past the level of 3d on the tails...

    I like 'em!

    I had a heck of a time finding good tails for my 2007. As you found out, not all 3rd gen tails work on 07 - 08 trucks. Finally found some Hella units that looked awesome.

    How are 07-08 Rams different from the 02-06??
    Also, I’m curious if you have to have the 06-08 bumper to change over to headlights from those years (I have an 04 and want to change to the later years’ headlights).
    Ordering things from online can be difficult because of the cost of shipping (and those who won’t) to Hawai’i.

    07-08 have different wiring for the tail lights,

    To swap front ends you need fenders, grill, headlights, grill support, different bumper cap, and wiring to match the new headlights

    That's the first set of aftermarket 3rd gen taillights I've seen I don't hate, I like'em. I'm digging the headlights as well, who makes them?

    Im kinda suprised to hear that, im more of a fan of how some of the others look, but i love how these light up.

    Not sure on the brand of either, i got them from one of the usual ebay vendors for both, but they pair together really well and almost look oem-is with em in the combination i have them...

    I do think im gona black out the tails though
