[QUOTE=08fordsd350;47428][U]I'm looking to replace my OEM tail light assemblies on my 08 F350 with [COLOR=Black][URL="http://www.niceledlights.com"]Peimar led[/URL][/COLOR] assemblies (not LED replacement lamps). I'm looking for ones that look as close to OEM as possible, but a lot brighter.

There's a ton for sale, but I'm having problems figuring out what makes one better than the next - thoughts??[/U] [U]

Also, if you have any brand favorites, I would really appreciate your rationale.[/U]

I think you need to search more online shops. You will get plenty.

If you want something close to stock but more bright, why don't you just keep the stock headlights and install new bulbs. There are basically two options (not counting HID, because they are illegal in many states and you can easily get a ticket for having them in your headlights. So options one - install bright white halogen bulbs something like Philips or [URL="https://www.carid.com/sylvania/info/comparison.html"]Silvania ZXE (can check the comparison)[/URL]. The are slightly brighter than stock halogen bulbs but have that diamond white tint to them which looks very nice. Second option is installing LED bulbs in your high/low beams. they are brighter than halogen bulbs, have that white tint but not as glaring as xenon or HID bulbs, which shouldn't bring any problems with cops. They also require ballasts like HID lights, but they are much more stable.
I tried aftermarket headlights on my previous 06 Sierra, but they are not really bright, unless you switch the bulbs to something brighter.
