    Mlucas555,

    Just curious but you can keep stock and upgrade the bulbs to led.
    I bought led's from Headlight Revolution. Super bright!.

    I think the one your looking at might involve more work like removing the stock housing?

    The third brake light mounts to the cab with two studs on the back that go through the roof. Number of screws doesn't make any difference.

    I think that with the 1st and 2nd gen trucks it was a little harder, but the 3rd should be easier. At least I am hoping.
    I like the look of this one more than the stock one.

    I installed a tinted overlay from www.lamin-x.com, I don't use the cargo light for anything, but you can trace out the cargo lights if you don't want them tinted.

    Just a thought, as it's pretty simple.

    That's cool, thanks for sharing, but I think I want the change of the whole unit.

    After more research, I am going to replace the bulbs with leds and not the whole unit.
