Anyone done HID reverse 08+
 
Iv seen a thread on 05-07 hid conversion on tails which looks much easier then the 08+ tails..

Just wondering if any one has done this and the steps they took for mounting the bulbs themselves

I know a few have... Not myself personally. I would recommend LED's and not HID's and that's just me. The HID's may take too long to warm up, possibly not worth it. IMO.

Yeah im not really doing it for the light output, really just doing it cause I have a extra kit laying around and get bored on my days off lol.

Haha don't blame you. If/when you do this, you should set it up so then you can turn them on while driving. That'd be sick.

first off, the 07+ tails are the same, its the 05/6 that is different.

i have them on my 07. I was able to take part of the stock reverse socket and siliconre it to the HID capsule so now it goes into the tail same as oem .

they will also briefly flash every time you take your truck from park to drive!

If Im wrong about the year then my bad lol.

But if yours has "sockets" I dont think its like mine. If you could show me a pic that would be great.


My tails are the 2 bulb style with one reverse and one dual filament bulb for turn and brake. the only write-ups iv seen are on the 3 bulb style with the "sockets"

Id dunno maybe ill just find something else to work on.

07+ have one bulb for turn/park/blink and one bulb for reverse.
the early ones use a 3157 for reverse. the 07+ use a 921.




have fun

I wasnt asking for you to take it off. I thought you might have a pic of your install. I wasn't doubting you on the tails when I think sockets I think of the other style tails.
