If you are not familiar with the term “third brake light,” that's okay. It is one of the part of your truck that you use every time you apply the brake
; it's the light that sits at the top of the truck above the rear window. Your third brake light is a safety feature that operates as a way to ensure other drivers around you know when you are braking. Since we look up when we drive, some people may notice the third brake light before they notice the tail lights, so it is important that yours functions properly.
When looking at current statistics, it is quite shocking to learn that third brake lights have reduced the number of accidents on the road by about 4 percent, which is close to 200,000 less crashes per year in the US. These lights have become popular since they came into play and they are almost always used on trucks, and even some sedans have them as well.
Aftermarket 99-06 Silverado third brake lights are better than the stock lights and if you want to replace your factory light with a newer and brighter version, you can. These lights offer you a bright LED output that are hard to miss and you will be less likely to experience a rear-end collision because other drivers will quickly see and notice your brake light. When you choose an LED bulb, you will find that they offer you light for tens of thousands of hours and they only use about one tenth of the power as a halogen or incandescent bulb.
When you purchase a new third brake light, you are putting your safety first. While these lights are designed to provide you with an additional layer of safety, they also look good too, so you do not have to worry about them detracting from the look of your truck’s exterior.
