Why would you cover up the rear reflectors for the sake of "looking cool" ? Why not also do the head and tail lights ?

I agree. :crazy: may as well do the windshield and side glass too. Glass is pretty shiney.

Personally, I don't leave my taillights on 24x7, so if I am parked along side the road, I like to have idiot driver see my car, instead of running into it. Maybe it is just me ! There may also be reflectors built into the taillights, but tonight (New Year's Eve) an extra reflector or two may be worth it !

I also like the all black look, so I'm gonna give op :thumb:
And to think the wife was actually trying to convince me to buy a white truck, lol. My defence has always been Batman, and the Bat-mobile ;D

Happy New Year!!!!

There are no reflectors in the taillights that's why there are separate reflectors. It's a federal mandate for the exact reason you mentioned on all vehicles. Same with the side marker lights. Its a safety item. But like the OP said, to each their own.

this observation might be funny to some and unfair to others. i have noticed that the people most likely to dislike my mods and raise safety concerns "issue" are usually the people that own LTZ's with a high chrome content and are over 60. :eek:hno:

its in the spray paint area. there are cans that you can dip your tools into and right next to it should be the plasti-dip spray. if not i know a site on the net that offers it at $5.50 + shipping and you can get it in diff colors including clear.

Went back to your first post, and while I envy the California plate since is so freaking cold where I am, it looks to me as if your truck doesn't have the factory dark tint that comes with the 2LT trim. Was that not standard for the 2010 2LT models?
