    JOHN DEER LS6 was parting out some 1999 T/A parts. He had tail lights (I'm guessing 1998 -2002 were all the same?). Not sure if he still has them. I would try searching in the parts wanted section if you haven't already. There seems to be always someone parting a vehicle in here.

    PS - That sucks about the tail light. Cheapest I could find was a lot more than the price you state, so it doesn't seem like too bad of a price.

    Good luck.

    Really? I found some on ebay between $75-150 but i dont really trust ebay after buying dirtbike engines on there "with low hours, good condition, no problems" and got it and it was full of detonation scars so i dont know if its just bad judgement on my part but i just dont really trust it :-/

    1999 trans am part out

    You can also try using the "search" function and type in "tail light" and see if anything else pops up.

    The above thread dates back to April, but people have recently still been asking for things. You might get lucky.

    If you can hold out and want it cheaper, I would just keep trolling the Part Wanted / Trade section in here. I am sure something will come up that will save you some $. I am guessing you are like most of us in here with our cars though and want it fixed ASAP.

    If something does become available, you'll have to be quick, people in here are vultures!

    problem solved. It's just a crack, no water has entered the tail light, just cosmetic ... so I bought black covers for the tail lights ... which i was debating for many reasons but I gave in today and bought those when I got my subframe connectors & new shocks

    I was almost going to mention blackouts, but a lot of people have reservations about them. Good deal then. Just curious. Which SFCs did you go with?

    I love black outs... I had both my front & rears blacked out on my old truck but with NightShade, I figure covers can come off without ruining my lights.

    I went with UMI Performance Weld-On 3-Point Subframe Connectors in Red ... hopefully it'll dissipate some of the squeaks I have *fingers crossed*
