Customization is the name of the game when it comes to modifying your mini-truck and making it stand out at the local cruise or at a big time show. Basically, a good rule of thumb is "Stock sucks." So, anything stock just won't do on your custom ride, including the taillights. Depending on where you live, you might want to take into account the DOT laws that apply to certain modifications, including messing with the factory lighting (if your anything like most mini-truckers, you probably don't worry too much about Johnny Law) before shaving your taillights and installing a set of LEDs.
Custom Classic in Howe, Texas, offers LEDs in many lengths and color combinations. For this install, we chose a set of 8-1/2-inchers that have white reverse lights built in. The crew at Street Issue Customs in Poulsbo, Washington, decided to use a first-generation Blazer as the guinea pig for the LED install. After the basic measuring, cutting, and wiring are taken care of, the hardest part was the bodywork involved in smoothing over the LEDs to give them that true "flush-mounted" appearance. Follow along with the crew at Street Issue Customs as it shows just how easy this do-it-yourself LED install really is.
