    Default LED 3rd brake light for me!!!!

    some poor shmuck paid my shop $130 to replace a bad LED 3rd brake light with a dealer one. Curious, I did some investigating and fixed it for 75 cents!!!! I'm gonna install it tomorrow!

    Mount it in the grille and rig it to go back and forth like K.I.T.T.

    why dont u guys like 3rd brake lights???

    this thing came off a 90 something gmc Jimmy. Its an exterior mount light, so its all one sealed unit with 2 wires coming out of it. It should look sweeeet. Its let up raining here so maybe I can work on it some now... I have to tap into the brake lamp switch wire and run a wire all the way to the trunk. (the hard part) :cuss:

    I think it looks cleaner without it, you know having a full uninhibited back dash.

    Wow! That is low profile! I would like that much better than my stock crap, if it were not so bright (I guess that is easy to fix, a little tinting ). Looks great though! I'm convinced I want it. If you run into another one, let me know!

    Are you going to through a little tint on it to help that?? I think that whatever it came out of prolly had a factoy tinted rear window and that is why it is so bright. I'm serious about letting me know if you find another one. What vehicle did it come out of??

    He said it came out of a Jimmy. On Jimmys they were outside just above the rear glass. So no tint.
    Looks really cool 85crown!

    Damn that sucker is bright! It almost makes you regular brake lights look orange-ish. Good job on that clean install!
