So I had the bright idea of taking off the tailgate this weekend.....why is a story for another day. Removing it was pretty straight forward 3 plugs down by the spare fish them up thru and thats it. The only problem is when I went to slide the tailgate off, I just caught the inside of the right tail light and cracked the lens....and as title states Ford wants 1k for a new one....WTF? and the kicker is that doesn't even include the BLIS radar module you have to retrofit your old one.....the lens on these are extremely brittle you can hardly notice the cracks but as soon as we get some rain you know the rest.....just FYI......also if the tail lights are a grand apiece I would hate to see what the LED headlights cost to replace........

Check with your insurance agent about coverage subject to your deductible....

While in a hurry and a lapse of judgment I managed to rip off the drivers side xm antenna housing when I got too close to the garage. :mad: Waiting to see what that’s going to cost. I just hope it doesn’t leak because it’s raining cats and dogs here all day today and tomorrow.

That's crazy, the LED headlights assembly list for over $1,600.00, ouch!!
I looked those up, thinking I'd like to swap to the blacked out Sport version when I get my truck. Yup, they list at $1,660ish EACH!

I was taking my bike rack off today and whacked the tail light lens, put a big crack in it. Has anyone found a decent replacement option? If its $1000 I'll just put some red tape on it. Can't believe how brittle these things are.

Sorry to hear that man....yea it sucks....super glue will discolor the lens...I turned into my INS only had $100 DD.....on a side note when I went to put the replacement in the holes didn't quite line up....local garage had to file them bigger to get screws in....weird!

On Friday i smacked my tail light putting a few empty crate palates in the box and accidentally smacked my tail light. My heart fell as i quickly moved to inspect the light and thank goodness it was fine. I got super lucky. I wondered how much they were.

My brother works with a lot of dealerships and knows his way around car parts. He found this lens for $103. Gotta switch out the BLIS and other stuff, but its exactly what I need. Hope this helps you guys.
