Tail lights are important for safety, making your vehicle visible at night and enabling you to let other drivers know when you are stopping and turning, but they’re also styling features that are so distinctive that you can tell the make and model of some vehicles just by the pattern of illumination revealed in the darkness. Whether you’re repairing a daily driver, upgrading its appearance, or restoring a classic, from basic incandescent bulbs to the latest fiber optics and LEDs, we have all of your lighting needs.

Our collection of custom tail lights includes lights with European style, lights with LEDs, fiber optics and other high-tech sources of illumination, lights with smoked lenses and unique bezels, and some lights that include several of these features. Euro, also known as Altezza, tail lights, are a style of light typified by a chrome or black background with red, clear, or yellow individual lenses or bulbs under a clear or smoked outer lens. These lights are available in numerous color, tint, and bulb/lens arrangements, and provide an easy way to personalize your vehicle and give it a distinctive look. Options for light source includes conventional incandescent bulbs, LED lights, and fiber optic cable.

Their compact size makes LEDs easy to arrange in unique patterns, allowing designers to create many interesting styles. They’re extremely durable, with an average lifespan of 50,000-75,000 hours. The light they produce is much brighter, much more attractive than incandescent light, and they reach their full intensity approximately 200 milliseconds faster than incandescent bulbs, making them particularly appropriate for 3rd brake light use. Many of the latest custom style tail lights feature LEDs paired with fiber optic technology to create brilliant light bars. And if you’ve got a pickup, you can add style and safety with our LED light bars that function as running lights, brake lights, turn signals, and hazards.

For a custom look that will stand out on a light colored vehicle or stealthily blend in on a dark colored car or truck, choose lights from our selection of black and smoked tail lights. We have lights with black backgrounds, dark bezels, and lights with smoked lenses, and like our other lights they’re available with the latest high tech features including LEDs, fiber optics, and Euro style. Besides the very latest in lighting fixtures, we are your headquarters for all your tail light bulb needs. We have incandescent bulbs and super bright LED bulbs for tail lights, stop/brake lights, 3rd brake lights, and reverse lights.

An inexpensive way to give the custom look to your factory tail lights is with a set of our chrome tail light bezels and a chrome 3rd brake light cover, or consider adding supplemental exterior LED lights for a unique effect. By now, the original tail lights on classic and muscle cars have become faded and cracked, with corroded housings, and that won’t do if you’re restoring one of these special cars. We offer lenses, housings, bezels, and gaskets and seals where applicable, manufactured by restoration specialists. These parts are made to original specifications using modern tooling, for an authentic appearance that will be the finishing touch on your project.

    Tail Light Guards: Good-Looking Protection For The Back End Too
    Unlike passenger cars, virtually all modern pickups, sport utility vehicles, and Jeeps feature squared-off rear corners – a configuration that’s dictated more by necessity than by choice. Positioned on those sharp-edged corners at the most vulnerable spots possible are the tail light assemblies. We use the word vulnerable because tail lights really are sticking out there, with no protection.

    Can I Still Get Factory-Style Tail Lamps For My Car Or Truck?
    While we love the idea of customizing every corner of our vehicles, we also know that we sometimes face constraints, whether they be logistical, practical, or financial. Custom tail lamps? Sure, there are plenty of choices out there - the reality is that your particular situation may force you to consider a factory-style tail lamp. And in doing so, you may be thinking "dealer" or "salvage yard".

    What Are The Differences Between Euro And LED Tail Lights?
    To define a "Euro tail light", it's important to first define a modern "Euro" headlight assembly. Dating back to the 1950s, headlights on European cars were distinctive for their flush, aerodynamic glass surfaces, a design not permitted in the U.S. until 1984. At first, these Euro style headlamp assemblies did not feature a great deal of distinctive styling other than a smooth, one-piece glass outer surface. By the end of the last century, as high-tech xenon headlight assemblies grew in popularity on luxury vehicles, OEM Euro style headlights began to imitate their technical projector-beam look. Frosted glass lens covers were replaced with clear plastic ones, allowing a look at multi-faceted mirror pieces shaped in a variety of patterns. Today, Euro headlights have become associated with those complex shapes as well as circular cutouts that look the part of projector beam lenses. Euro tail lights (sometimes called "Altezza lights" or "clear tail lights") pay tribute to this look with designs modeled after modern Euro headlights.

    LED Tail Lights | Are They Brighter, Better-Looking, Or Both?
    One look through the Custom & Factory Tail lights section of our website will convince you there’s no question that tail lights equipped with LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights boost the look of any car, pickup, SUV, or van. Once you consider that more time is spent looking at the rear of vehicles compared to the front, purchasing LED tail lights to create a memorable and unique look for its backside is simply money well spent.

    What Choices do I Have for Tail Lights?
    There is an ever increasing range of taillights available, thanks to the rapid development of modern lighting technology and to changes in the legal requirements for automotive lighting. There have never been these many options for taillights, and it has never been easier to create a completely unique lighting signature for a custom vehicle.

    Automotive LED Lighting Explained.
    There is now LED lighting technology available for every conventional automotive lighting purpose. The incandescent bulbs haven’t really developed that much in the 140 years they have existed, while the development rate of LEDs is very rapid, with LED performance being doubled every 36 months, a development rate that is similar to the fast pace of computer development.
