Opinions on tail lights

Alright, i'm torn up between two options on tail lights.

Either tinted like this (photo credit to BMac):



Or the Recon Lighting smoked LED tail lights (photo credit to diesel power mag):



The tinted tail lights would be done to my stock 04 tail lights, and would be done for free as i work at a body shop.

Which would you guys do? I'm not really a fan of aftermarket tail lights but i would love some LED tail lights and the recon lights don't look bad.

On the other end of the spectrum, i love the look of stock tail lights, but they need to be darker to go with my black truck.

And of course theres the money issue. I could either get tinted done for free, or spend $300 (a no brainer money wise, but not a big issue).

What do you all think?

Re: Opinions on tail lights

you can get led tail lights off of ebay for about half that price. I like the the led tail lights myself. they will be much brighter than the stockers tinted.

Re: Opinions on tail lights

I like the tail lights on the 2010 trucks. Not sure, but they look like thay will mount right up.
