Smoked side marker lights?

I want to put a few lights down the side of my truck but I don't want to have orange lenses sticking out during the day, is there any place that sells some type of smoked lense side marker lights that light up orange? I also hate the long strip of LEDs that you can get!

BLACKOUT.... gone but never forgotten!!

Smoked would look nice, but I wouldn't think you would really notice much difference between smoked and the clear led's that light up in amber. I guess it all depends on the mounting location though

clearcoat and 2000 grit sandpaper work wonders, especially when combined with a high speed polisher.

Yep, if you clear (which I recommend) and wetsand and reclear (if you don't want to polish/buff) and it will be high gloss and have some depth to it.


You can see a pretty good reflection in my tail lights.
