    New Member: New Owner: Too Many Questions.

    Hello All,
    First off it is great to know that a community like this exists and is here to help and educate. I'm going to get right into the questions I have about my car:
    I have a 2011 Cadillac Escalade Ext.
    Questions
    1. Why are there no LED tail lights available to purchase?
    2. What is the best way to go about blacking out the tailights seeing as no after market lights are made for this truck (it seems)?
    3. What grills do you guys like?
    4. Presently the truck has chrome accentures on the exterior (mirrors, gills, window trim door handles...etc.) How do i change them.
    5 Do 22'' Rims fit comfortably on my truck or is 20'' as big as will fit without a lift-kit?

    Thank you all so much for any help you can offer.

    I have 26" rims on mine had to do a little trimming but it rides and looks awesome as of your tail lights you can a buy a tint film on eBay for about $20 and easily put them on.
    Visit nopi.com for aftermarket parts good luck.

    PS as of grills go with asanti their pricey but so is the cadillac...

    1. cause the factory taillights look fine
    2. tintshop or spray on tint
    3. stock
    4. plasti-dip (currently I am doing this)
    5. yes, I have stock 22" rims on mine, others have much bigger, it depends on the tire size you choose.
    6. Welcome, post some pics.

    I also have a EXT and for tail lights you can buy and install the 07 and up avalanche after market led tail lights. I also got stock 22s and will plan to add 24s in the summer.

    Hi, I tried to answer you PM but your box is full.

    I think as a new member you can only store one or two messages unless you upgrade your membership.
