Eagle Eye Tail lights installed

Hey all, newbie here and I've been lurking around for a few weeks now.

I just installed a set of these tail lights from ebay, and I'm pretty impressed. The only issues I had were the inner tails didn't fit 100%, more like 90%. They don't sit as flush and stick out a little bit. They're not too bad or noticeable to anyone else, only the owner.

Install was pretty straight forward. Came with a resister that I tucked behind the rear bumper. Inner tails were also tapped into the 3rd brake light so they function as brake lights as well. The install took about 30 min total, super easy to do.

All in all, not bad for the price. Bought them on ebay for $260 shipped.

I have the same ones, mine didn't fit as well as OEM either. I don't notice it now that their installed though.

Re: Eagle Eye Tail lights installed

do you guys know what socket is used on the tailgate lights that is tapped into the brake light? Wondering if this socket could be used in the oem tail lights to integrate the brake lights on the tailgate.

Not a socket, just wires going into the LED board. There is no way to light up the tailgate OEM lights as brake lights.

Re: Eagle Eye Tail lights installed

Good idea,I don't know why it's so difficult to use the oem lights. Splicing wires into the harnesses is just something that some folks are hesitant to do.

Re: Eagle Eye Tail lights installed

Sorry for the late response. The camera angle isn't so good from the ledge that I recorded from but it gives you an idea of the lights.
