I've completed my first mods last night. Moved plate under taillight, removed rear turn signals, added LED taillight with smoke lens and move reflectors to fill all the holes. Also added LED plate lights.

It should have come this easy from the factory. Love it.
Welcome and enjoy.

So where's your turn signals? Don't tell me you're not going to use any.

Welcome from northern Illinois!

I like what you did with the rear end lights... AWESOME!!! It looks much better without the turn signals sticking out. Great work!!

The turn signals are now integrated into the LED taillight. Half of the light turns yellow and sequentially flashes toward the left or right. Looks pretty cool and it's brighter than stock.
