I'm pretty sure if the turn signal is white it is illegal in most states, correct me if i'm wrong of course. I know one of my buddys got pulled over and ticketed for white lights in his housing.

^Agree, you can get switch backs that are white until you use the blinker. Roughly 35 bucks for the balt on e bay

mine are stock clear bulb, removed the orange cover when I painted them. Been 3 years, passed threw numerous road checks, no issues for me...but thats just my city as well.

If you dont want to open the lights yourself to remove the cover, just buy buy blacked out housing for an 07 or newer. I'm pretty sure they just use an amber bulb and dont have the orange shield the 05 and 06 models use. Swap the bulb and youre good to go.

So that orange in the blinker area can just be taken out?

05-06 has the orange shield that pops out...uses a clear bulb
07+ has no shield and uses an amber bulb

you could always same a lot of money and just paint yours. pop out the orange shield while youre in there. It would cost you about $20 and maybe 6 hours to do both.

seal it with silicone and you'll be good. if it does let moisture in, take the lights out and run a hair dryer through it to evaporate it, the seal it again

theres a few how to guides here that will walk you through how to do it.
personally, I like the look of matte black

Does painting the chrome on the back interior of the headlights cut down on the light they throw at night? It sure seems like it would.
