WTT - Tinted Taillights from 2011 JGC
 
Howdy folks - I had my taillights tinted by Scots Paint and Performance in a Medium Tint. Local LEO and I disagree on how visible that makes things (I have bright LED bulbs, and in my oh so humble opinion, it is similar in visibility to the regular lights). So - I have a couple choices - I can wet sand all of the tint off, or trade someone for their light tint, or non-tinted tail lights (which I will then get tinted in a lighter tint). Rather than go through all the work to hand sand them then have them tinted lighter, I thought I would put out a call here first.

PM me if you are interested. Need to wrap this up in the next couple weeks.

The US DOT folks approve the lenses. Cover them with tint and you don't meet safety specs. Don't know if you have an state inspection requirement, but it would be an fail issue in ME, NH & VT.

I agree with you, but DOT doesn't take into account the brighter LEDs. I would guess that they put out 150%+ of the light of the factory incandescent bulbs. If you look at "apples" to "apples" - I think mine are as bright as the factory ones - even with the tint.
