Another member is in Brazil now...$80-90 for new truck lights. Shipping would probably suck. I'll have to check.

Still probably cheaper than what I payed for them.

I paid $147 shipped on eBay from a seller in Brazil. He has smoked and regular both. Now that I have them on and working I really like them. :cool:

dang, I'm definitely going to need a 2nd set for the new truck. Maybe smoked on this one? Can't decide, lol.

Yes that's him. They fit like stock but the bulb sockets are a little different so I had to modify them a little with a dremel, no big deal.

I think all Brazilian tail lights are aftermarket. Not sure if GM actually made them. Mine came from Sweden and are marked with a name I don't remember off the top of my head, and say made in Brazil. Definitely slightly lower quality than the U.S. spec tail lights, but they look cooler so...

They must use different light bulbs in Brazil, maybe 1157s?

I got the pig tails with mine, the sockets that they used from the factory don't even fit the tail lights very well, lol.

They look and fit like factory better than the aftermarket lights that I had before.

That I would agree with. They fit and look factory. The plastic used is more brittle though. That is mostly what I noticed. I got used parts that had broken mounting points so I got very intimate with them. I wasn't too happy because I thought I was getting good parts. Live and learn I guess. If this guy in Brazil is selling them new, I'd definitely be interested.

After a little trimming mine fit good.

We're just suckers for a little orange in the tail lights... 😂 😂

I think they should be required like in Europe because the amber gets people's attention better. ;)

I sent a message to the seller...confirms aftermarket. Sent another just now asking if they came with pigtails/plugs.

Edit: The guy in Brazil is on top of his email...no pigtails.

Yes! I'm grabbing some now, lol. If they are that good I'll have to get a 2nd set and ditch the ones I have now.

Try the reverse sockets in the amber hole. There's a US spec socket that fits it just fine - I used them on my Blazer tails, but don't remember exactly, which. Reverse makes sense in my memory because it's a single filament application.

I tried several sockets and couldn't find one that fit so I ended up modifying them to make them work. If you could come up with a part number that would help. I couldn't find one for the double filament location either.
