Independent studies conducted many years ago proved that the addition of a Center High Mount Stop Lamp (CHMSL) helped reduce rear end collisions by 50%, so the NHTSA mandated that all new cars be so equipped effective with the 1986 model year. While you should keep all your lights in good working order for safety, with such percentages it’s particularly important to make sure your CHMSL, more commonly known as the 3rd brake light, is in good repair.

    Featured Brands

    We offer both custom and replacement 3rd brake lights. One of our replacement lights is identical to the original equipment light that you can purchase from a dealer in every respect except for the price tag. It will fit, function and appear just like the one that was installed by the vehicle manufacturer on the assembly line, it just won’t lighten your wallet as much. Our replacement 3rd brake lights are 100% legal for highway use and meet all DOT standards.

    While 3rd brake lights have significantly reduced accidents, they can be improved upon to further increase your safety. Our custom 3rd brake lights have LED bulbs, which have several advantages over incandescent bulbs including faster rise time, which is especially beneficial for a brake light. LED bulbs light up 0.2 seconds faster than incandescent bulbs, which may not sound like much, but when you consider that at 60 mph a car travels 88 ft. in one second, that 0.2 seconds can give a driver behind you almost 20 ft. of additional stopping space. That could be the difference between a collision and stopping in time.

    LED bulbs last 50,000 hours or more, so once you install one of our custom 3rd brake lights you’ll probably never have to touch it again because the bulbs will last the life of your car. LEDs are unaffected by vibration, unlike the fragile filaments in incandescent bulbs, so they’re perfect for use over pothole strewn, decaying roads and rough off-road terrain. But beyond the functional benefits, you’ll want one of our custom 3rd brake lights just for the way it looks. Our selection includes a wide variety of styles and finishes, including chrome, black, and smoke.

    But don’t think that because you have an older, pre-1986 vehicle that you can’t have the benefits of a 3rd brake light. We offer a universal 3rd brake light with bright LEDs that can be installed on any vehicle. And because it has a right and left circuit that can be operated independently, it can also be used for turn signals. The light is retained in a handsome low-profile polished billet aluminum housing that will look at home on the finest street machines and street rods, and it mounts to a swivel base to accommodate attachment to various surface angles. And for added safety with custom style, we offer an LED 3rd brake light encased in an original-style chrome bezel for select classic cars.

      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.

      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.

    Brake Lights LED
    Third break light did not fit contour of the cab so will need to be sealed with some type of sealant. When hooking up the cab lights stay on even when the key is turned off so it was needed to remove the wires to the cab lights. Tried different combinations with no success. Break light works well just cannot make the clear lights work correctly.
