Aftermarket LED Taillights advice? New member!!

I have a white 05 titan. I want some led smoked tail lights and I'm having trouble deciding whether or not I like the ones available. Any help? And if anyone has pictures of their taillights installed that would help a ton!!

are you talking the e-bay ones or some higher quality ones? I know guys really like the led tails, but some have issues with the e-bay leds going out. don't know if the more expensive ones do it. so i went with spider led bulbs. rolling over 3 yrs with no probs.

I have the Volant knock-off LED tail lights. A row of LED's on both tail lights no longer works and another row flickers. I'm rather disappointed. If you find with a good quality LED tail light let us know.

I have the "Volant" LEDs also. After 5 years one row of 3 LEDs went out (it started out flickering). I opened up the housing and found a solder joint to be loose. New solder and it's been good since.

Also it's probably NOT a Volant knock off. Volant actually bought these from Laster Tech (original maker of these LED lights) put there name on it ans sell it for 3 times as much.

How did you open the housing? I tried that and cracked the outer covering.

Do you have three or five LED's on the side? I have three and from what I've heard the real Volant tail lights have five.

Maybe you do have a knock off. LOL I have 6 on the side like the Volant.
Mine had some screws and was seal but I pry the cover off.

Oh, sure. You have the NICE ones.

I think I had a couple of screws on the inside but they didn't seem to hold much on. Makes me think the cover isn't going to come off with gentle persuasion.

I know this thread is old. But I'm frustrated too because I have a row of 3 out and mine has the 6 LEDs on side. I contacts Burtman industries several times and he saying they're Ina warehouse somewhere and they can get ahold of the guy...I dunno I just spent a lot of money on these Taillights and they prob 3 years old-Ish...disappoints me cuz they the only ones I like. I even tried to but another set from Burtman industries or anywhere else even but I can't find them. Plus I have two buddies buggin me to help them find the same ones zzz smh...I'm thinkin bout takin them apart so baseballs and it wasn't too hard I don't wanna crack anything...
