Completely non Fury related but thought I would share.

This is a Mod I did on the tail lights of my wife's 2008 Chevy Suburban LTZ.

Explained below....


Well I finally got time to do this tail light mod that I have been wanting to do. Its nothing real special but I think it kinda gives the truck a more modern look like the 2015+ trucks because some of them have amber turn signals.

I rewired the original turn signal location as an additional brake light and installed an LED bulb that strobes a few times before staying on.

I removed the original 2 wire socket for the reverse light and replaced it with a 3 wire socket and put White/Amber type 2 switchback LED bulbs so that the clear portion of the lens now acts as the reverse light and the turn signal so it does double duty.

I also installed Can bus LED bulbs in the original brake light location so the cruise control still functions correctly and I installed a resistor on the turn signal to keep it from hyper flashing from the LED bulb.

The first video shows the left tail light with the Mod complete and the right tail light in stock format.




This second video shows the tail light up close after dark.



Let me know what you guys think.

My next will be an Escalade 3rd brake that is modded for full width LEDs but with a twist... Lol stay tuned.

Cmon KB, you couldn't use my other thread, "Post Your Other Projects"??

Haha nice work though! I did a projector retrofit on my truck a month ago and put switchbacks in for the parking lamp/turn signal. White when they're in parking light mode, act as a DRL now, amber when they flash. Quite slick!

Good call... I am viewing/posting from my phone and sometimes I have trouble finding threads when I search for them.... I will see if I can find it and post it over there as well.

Thanks for the compliments.

So this isn't a pic of my truck but this is what the original spoiler/3rd brake light looks like...



And this is what the new Escalade spoiler/3rd brake light looks like after I painted it today with the 3 stage white diamond tricoat paint.



I also modded the 3rd brake light to make it light up across the full width because from the factory only the center lights up... Actually the same width as the suburban's 3rd brake light which is just stupid... GM definitely cheaped out by not adding the extra LEDs after making the lens full width and even molding in the spots where the LEDs should be but then didn't add them.... GM = retarded sometimes.

When soldering the LEDs and resistors and voltage regulators together I kept each half separate and wired them to be brake lights AND turn signals which I have never seen anyone else do... I will post pics after installing it tomorrow and try to post a video of it in action with the newly modified tails.

So several questions come to mind:
Are those SLK pipes?
Are you using an Earth battery?
Will a 250 tire fit on the rear?
Oh, and most important, did you reflash the ecu?

A 1. No but it does have a performance muffler... But not too loud because its a luxury truck.

A 2. Optima red top for the Burb.

A 3. 250 might fit but would probably look funny since the stocks are 275/55/20's... Lol

A 4. Absolutely!!! Diablosport tuner makes the Burb a happy camper.
