    Cool Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    as I was pulling out of a restraunt this afternoon, a newer I assume a 14 EXT went by, looked sexy of course! I pulled out right behind him and up to the light, I looked and looked again, How could there be LED tail-lights on that! But is it possible that the 14 came with the LED tail-light? If so the big question, will they fit my 09? inquiring minds HVAE to know, since everyone with an EXT has been looking to do this upgrade but nothing really out there.

    So lets hear it! do those 14's have LED's? and will they fit our eariler EXT?

    Thanks in advance,

    Dave

    First of all there's no such thing as a 2014 EXT, the last model year for them was 2013.

    Could it have been something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/TAIL-LIGHT-0...-/400632107926

    Ooops my by, I thought the last year was 14, my badd! They could have possibly looked like the ones in you link. I know I have looked several years ago for these LED, and they only had them for the Escalade and ESV, nothing for the EXT, those must be something kind of new. Thanks for the info and I will look into them. Has anyone heard any feed back on the aftermarket ones that you posted the link to?

    Yes AZKlaus, they were exactly like that! I just did a search on Ebay, found the ones from the eariler post but did not see those! I believe I like the link that you posted better, will check them out. Again, anyone have any feed back on these aftermarket light?

    Thanks!

    I have had those exact ones that AZKlaus linked on my EXT for about 2 years and no issues. I really wanted the led look, after all it is a cadillac ��. I also bought them off ebay not sure of the seller name though. It is about 180 shipped to Canada. They have lasted well in the extreme cold weather we have here. I was a little hesitant as i thought i would see water damage due to improper sealing during manufacturing but am happy to report that no such issues.

    Re: Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    The lights that AZKlaus noted in his post. I like them better than the set that soulsea linked to. I sent the sell from the set from AZ list on Ebay a note asking if they would fit an EXT, he said no, what the HELL! they said they only fit Avalance! I asked if I purchased and they did not fit could I return, and they told me to refur to there return policy, whice states for defective or poor fitment within 7 days, all other need a return authazation request. So I'm alittle hessitant to order them. Chade posted that he has had those tail lights for 2 plus years with no issues. The others that wanted to see pics, both AZklaus and soulsea had links to the respective lights on Ebay. I will have to check into the lights that Rich08 is refurring to and see if I can find those.

    Re: Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    I could be completely wrong but i believe the socket for the avalanche and ext are the same because they both use filament bulbs in their tail lamps..

    On the regular Escalade you can't use Tahoe/Yukon lamps and vice versa because they are different sockets and BCM programming to account for the OEM led tails on the esky. That might be what is confusing the vendor, or he could be right and they are different ... but again I doubt it because I've seen other lamps that state that they will work on both.

    There is a member here called felixgun that has a regular esky and an avalanche, and I think he has changed to led tails on his avy, and he will probably know the answer to this question.

    Yea I'm pretty sure they're interchangeable. Like soulsea said I have them on my avalanche and love them. I wish they'd come out with an Esky ext clone replica tail light in LED...

    Here's a pic:

    Re: Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    I just ordered a set of LED tail lights that were linked from AZKlaus. One question about them! Is the back up bulb an LED also, or is it a standard bulb? If it is a standard, I'm sure I can install a LED backup bulb. I could just wait till it arrives, but if I do find out in fact i need to order a LED back up bulb I can do it right away.

    Thanks for all the input and opinions.

    Re: Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    The backup light is just a standard bulb ... I assume it's 7440 (or whatever bulb your stock lamps use) but the only way to be sure on the socket size is to contact the vendor or to wait to see it in person.

    And yes you can just buy led bulbs for it.

    Re: Were my eyes deceiving me today?

    Here are mine which I believe are the same as felixgun's. They are plug n play on an EXT and bulb for reverse is not LED but I swapped it to one after I got them. Mine are the tinted red color though. I am very happy with them. Have had them for over 2 years and no burned out lights yet (knock on wood).
