Here You Go Brother! Its that Blue thing on the right! the opening is sealed with some sort of blue mesh that has a million tiny holes in it... I know its for heat dissipiation.

I guess, if we put a hole in our Jeep's Tail lights they wont warp anymore..

I'm With your theory Robpp! Scott Also Stated that the fast cooling on the outside of the hot inner lense makes the warping ... Its Logical to me. I Guess this is the real Reason of warping...

Re: Found out why our tinted tail lights warp.

Re: Found out why our tinted tail lights warp.

You guys are all wrong. It's from letting your blinker fluid get too low. Regular blinker fluid changes are important for taillight lifespan. I always use synthetic.

Luckily mine didnt warp yet so im still good so dont keep it in reverse to long and u will have no problem.
could it be the tint does not allow the OEM plastic surface to dissipate the heat, instead, the heat stays inside the housing and causes deformation of the plastic?
