So I've been wanting to do the 2012+ Premium style smoked clear tail lights. They are hard to come by and are high $$$ from dealers when you can find them. While browsing eBay for a set I ran across these aftermarket replicas. Of course I'd like nothing but OEM parts on my truck but these are a 1/3 of the price and they look exactly like the OEM in every way from what I can tell. Does anybody happen to have any experience with these?

Yeah Eagle Eyes makes a decent product. I've had their G4 and G5 tails on my Yukon, albeit the red ones not the smoked. I did have the Escalade oem smoked ones on it too with a custom harness. The Eagle Eyes usually come with resistors for the Tahoe/Yukon trucks that need them ... obviously the Escalade doesn't so it seems this specific auction is for a version without resistors, which is what you want. But you'll need the 3rd brake lamp as well for it to look right, and that I'm pretty sure you'll have to buy oem. It's too bad cause I sold my whole set from my Denali a while back, otherwise you'd have one on the cheap. :)

Here's how they looked:

One thing to note ... Eagle Eyes, like a lot of lighting products made in China, sometimes have defective lamps. It's not really an issue if you're dealing with a reputable ebay seller who'll exchange them for you asap. I'm not familiar with this particular seller, but most of us on TYF have dealt with an ebay vendor called Revotec, who provides good CS and exchanges them no questions asked.

I knew you'd chime in! Wish you still had yours :(... I think I may pull the trigger on these, the seller seems reputable and offers refunds within 30 days so I may give it a try. Of course I would do the 3rd brake light too, just hoping superchargedss can still get them for $130.

What is so different with these besides being smoked?

Well it's almost official now Serge, went ahead and placed my order with superchargedss for the 3rd brake light. My 2012+ Premium conversion is almost done! I also had these bad boys mounted up yesterday for my "back ups" for long distance trips and taking the truck in for warranty work :cool:

Are you asking me where I got the custom harness to run Esky OEM lamps on my old Yukon ... or are you asking something else?
