AlphaRex – Honorable Mention

AlphaRex 2014 ford raptor tail lights

Alpha Rex deserves an honorable mention because they are by far the best value we have tested. Check out our Alpha Rex f150 tail review to find out why we love them. They are highly recommended but there is limited stock & inventory at the moment. Alpha Rex is a newer player in the aftermarket lighting scene but is stealing the show in other categories such as our Ultimate Guide F150 Headlights 2009-2014 best headlight pick for your F150. Their track record has shown to provide the most up-to-date styling with higher quality and more features than competitors of the same price. If none of our other picks feel right check out the manufacturer’s site for updates on future availability. Or check out the lucky few who have got their hands on them on the Ford Raptor Forum.
