hey, my TYCredout tail lights came to my door like 30sec ago, so i look at them, and i see that they dont have light bulbs. can i use the bulbs from my stock lights, or do i have to buy new ones?

yes, that is what you suppose to do, use ur stock bulbs.Oh yea installation is easy too. Just take out the back seats and all those panels when you put it ur new ones. One of the screws is a bitch to take out

the stock bulbs/clips on them fit right into the TYC...
and you do NOT have to take out the rear seats or plastics spineyes

you just take off the cover on each side, which allows you to get to you tails. thumbsup

there is 1 bolt on each side that is a PITA to remove or tighten if you leave the plastics on

your best bet would to remove the plastics

When I installed my black TYCs the top screw was a bitch, but i didn't take out all those pannels. Just be patient, but ya that screw can be a bitch.

How do you get to that one nut/bolt if you don't remove the entire trunk plastic piece covering it? Just popping out that panel only lets you get to 2 out of the 3 bolts confused

the third bolt is hidden behind the plastic...you can use a wrench to get to it.

Man, you guys must either a) have the smallest hands known to man or b) you're able to contort your arms in unnatural positions
