    I went with these:


    They have that stock look with an updated feel. Here is a link to similar ones on eBay.

    Sure I can put it up for you. I recommend using photobucket. It lets you store photos online and you can simply post the link from any photo you've uploaded and then this forum doesn't have to host the photo (no quota overages)

    They are plug and play(you just plug them in like a regular bulb) but they are available with red lens(which mimic the stock housings)
    Here is the site I got mine from www.carid.com

    Also thanks for helping me post the pics of my taillights
