Default 98 - 2000 LED taillights

I have seen them for sale at about 400 but am sure they will get lower in price. Hell just get over here damn it ~!
This is not the exact one but it looks like this.



Oh and just for fun here is an upper control arm that is totally pimp it is all aluminum with camber control and much nicer but i cannot find the pic.

i don't know about the whole led tail thing. It's nice but it's risky on the led part. i know of alot of people who have had problems not too long after having the lights. I have a hookup on some rcr tails for our year if anyone is interested.

LED tails are cool, but I've heard of some people having issues with aftermarket LED tails. Like one bank of them will just go out real quick.

And them being in Japan It would be hard just to "return" them and get new ones. Check out their return policy and garuntee and stuff. If it's all legit then I'd say go for it man!

Those look great! About time these are available.

Personally I'll stick to stock as the 98-00 LS400 is too old of a car to make look too new, but prove me wrong guys....

The thing i like about the crystal clear lights is that it is still the same design but is updated in style. Having LED's make it look newer but not like you threw some other cars taillights on it.
The biggest problem with most of the aftermarket lights produced for the LS is that they do not have the black lines separating the lenses which is what made them look cheap.

No one will know you changed your taillights with clear lenses or LED's as it is not like plastic surgery it is more like botox. A slight alteration bring new life to the old skin.


Take a look clear with led's look nice.
Crystal clear alone is nice
and the plain clear lenses with stamped refractors giving the white not clear look make it look like a car from the 90's and not the new millennium.
