Nice p[roduct

October 11, 2014
These are great lights, the body of the light is good heavy material with quality chrome plating. Even the rubber gasket is a good pliable material that will actually create a seal when installed. I opted to purchase a set of "blue dot" lens" so I can switch for a different appearance on my truck.
Pros:
  • Quality
Cons:
  • None
Yes, I recommend this product.

They are glass, if you want blue dot you need to get the replacement lens which is also glass.

Is this a combination stop/turn/tail light assembly? The picture shows only 2 wires

Is this a combination stop/turn/tail light assembly? The picture shows only 2 wires

Answers

This is combination stop & tail. The two wires go directly to your existing wires for tail and turn. The ground comes through the housing mounting studs. Use a good star washer under the nut, or add your own ground wire from the stud to the chassis.
February 24, 2015
EricM
This uses a 1157 dual filament bulb. One wire will be connected to your tail light power source and the other will be used for stop and/or turn. In order for the second to be used for both stop and turn your vehicle will have to be wired so that the turn signal will interrupt the brake light circuit when the turn signal is operating. The housing of this light must be grounded to complete the circuit.

what is the difference between the left light and the right?

what is the difference between the left light and the right?

Answers

March 15, 2015
Soft48
Minor difference in how the housing and rubber gasket fit to the body. You could ignore it and they would still work. The original Chevy housings had a left and right version. This matches the original fit.
January 09, 2015
EricM
The lens and bezel is the same but the housing and mounting studs are different configuration. Therefore is using on an original 41-48 you need to specify right or left. Light reflector in housing could also vary so if ordering for custom application we suggest ordering one of each.

Different Flasher needed? do I need a different flasher for this unit? I can't get my blinkers to work.

Tail light number 91137042 is a 12 volt light utilizing an 1157 bulb and should not require a different flasher if you are using a standard or heavy duty flasher. To require a timed LED flasher you would need to change to LED lights requiring very little current draw.

How easy is it to take these lights apart to change the bulb? I am leaning away from the 39 teardrops because of the single piece design. Are these the same way?

Two screws, one on each side. Tail light frame and lens comes off and can replace bulb very easy. Just like the stock ones in 41-48.

Changing the bulb is simple. Easy access from the outside by removing the lens ( 2 screws hold the lens in place )
May 25, 2011

These tail light housings are retained by two studs going into the body or fender with a nut on the inside. The lens and bezel come off with two screws (one on either end) from the outside to make bulb replacement a simple operation.
