I'm thinking about buying some of the depo tail lights. Looking for anyone who has had them for a while to see how they hold up. I know they aren't the best in terms of quality but do the LEDs say "alive" for a long time? I've read thinks about them leaking so if anyone has any info about that that would be cool thanks

Recently had one give up, the right brake light died. Possibly something easy, but can't get it apart, glued together. They don't sell singles, so had to buy a new pair.

Mine have been in for over 7 years! I have not had any issues. They look about like they did when new.

Sounds like they are slightly iffy but overall probably will work alright. For $100 might as well give them a shot to see if I like them over stock. Thanks

I had a set in mine that lasted ~3yrs before a brake light bit the dust, so I went back with my stockers - I still had them in a box so it 2 birds / 1 stone by not shuffling the box around anymore & “free” fix.

I liked the yellow turn signal delete lense though - on my black 80 it looked right having the clear that I dusted with a light coat of smoke paint (proper prep & it still looked great until I noticed the brake light prob).

Upside was I never had to do any relay swapping like cheaper LED’s that don’t have the right ohm resistance built in.

I bought a pair of Depo LED tail lights, but they did not come with instructions. Do I have to splice the factory wiring harness or are they plug and play?
