How visible are you with these things on? Not very well, I'd imagine.

I didn't know they made tail light covers......
I've already done the "Nite-Shades" mod to my 97.....

I'd be worried about your reverse lights more then anything..... your brake lights you could always put in brighter or LED bulbs.

What I really want to know is when will they come out with headlight covers for the 96-99

In my opinion, those look pretty good. You just need to get that LUND off of it.

I too didn't know that those were made. But, hey, kinda makes the trunk nonfunctional with them on, doesn't it? I like the look but I think the Nightshades accomplish it well too.

Just my $.02...but headlight covers and tail light covers were neat 10 years ago. Now I think they look kinda trashy. Plus it will be a lot harder to see your brake lights during the day. If someone ever rear ends you that could be a problem.

Again, just my opinion.

looks pretty good, I'm wondering the same as Princess, hows that functional with the trunk?

as for the brake lights, you can see them when lit; There most visible at dusk (as far as pre 96'* who use the headlights during the day)
