How much do these dim the light output? Do they need brighter bulbs than stock? I bought some smoked covers (from a different company) and I can't drive at night even after installing brighter bulbs for $40.
These are recommended for offroad use only due to the smoked lens. The issue you have with your tinted covers will be similar to the output of these with the smoked lens. If you drive a lot at night, we recommend sticking with assemblies that do not have a smoked lens.
