Does anyone have a link to where i can get full red led rear brake light bar to match stock? Why does stock only light in center?

I think Putco has a clear high mount light that lights all the way across.You may want to call them.

This is exactly what I am looking for but want it to be red like stock except light the entire length. Why would they have only lighted the center and not the full bar?

I have been looking as well and the Putco was only option I can find , so I have decided to do a custom job, my auto custom shop will be obtaining an OEM third brake light and will then put LEDs across the board...he advised that the light will be brigther than two left/right brake lights, but if you look at the bulbs in the left and right brake light versus the third brake light you will notice that they already differ in type (round vs square bulbs) and also in brightness.

Once complete I know it will look great..I have already changed all bulbs in my vehicle (inside and out) to LEDs and the fog and reverse lights to HIDs this is the only light left unchanged.

So try the custom mod, let the custom shop know the brightness you require and it will be worth it.

Or you could alwayz make your own...That way you will be the only one with it
:cool:

Ordered a few LED strips and made my own with integrated turn signals.Mine already had the full LED across the back but im sure you could still make it work.

Oh yeah, I'm also debating doing the integrated turn signal options like the infamous " Matchn_Toyz ".....BTW: Matchn_Toyz I'm fully HID and LED equipped as per your great thread and feedback, any new mods to share? Might need a different post as I wouldn't want to kidnap this one....

Glad to hear your all LED & HID up! Im glad I did mine... it really makes a difference. Its how they should come from the factory....but we all know GM is too cheap.

As far as new modz..... well lets just say im alwayz workn on some. I just added new HID Projector fog lights and im still working on making my EXT have LED tail lights like the SUV. Ill post some pics later.

I too have to thank the infamous Matchn_Toyz. I used your truck as base. Did a few things different but truck is looking killer. Full led upgrades done. Looks great. I would consider HID conv for fogs and backup. Can you post pics? Custom sounds like the way to go. I definitely want it to match the stock red. Looks killer. Also added Fire and Ice by plasmaglow. The wife HATES it but what can you do. Bringing th car in for K&N CAI, Kooks Headers, Corsa Touring and Dyno in a few weeks. PSYCHED to see the performance gains!!!

the color choices are only "Clear, Smoke, and Ion Chrome." It did not mention red as an option...

Sorry to bring an old thread back up, but since this is what I found with my search, then what the heck...

So, I have never actually paid any close attention to the Escalade third brake light, but is it really so that only the middle part lights up? Not the whole strip? If so, that's kind of stupid, but I guess there's some good (read: stupid) reason for that.

I'd like to have the whole bar light up and the Putco part has been mentioned in this thread already. But, like OP, I would like to get something that matches stock. Is there a red one available anywhere?

I guess adding LEDs would be one option, but me and soldering iron have never been good friends... :suspect:

I was behind another Escalade in bumper to bumper traffic, and after a little while, my eyes began to hurt from all of the LEDs flashing on and off! I'm glad Cadillac only made the middle part of the light bar light up.

Talked to a few companies that repair led tail lights but they were not interested in doing it for me, still looking. :(
