Just curious, has anyone else had problems trying to find tinted tail light covers for their 50th? Every website I visit has the fine line 'excludes 50th anniversary edition'. Is this why you want to swap out the factory?
Big Worm Graphix sells pre-cut tinted film for the LE taillights. When you go to the order page you can select with or without the 50th anniversary trim from the menu before adding the item to your shopping cart. I believe they are a sponsor on this forum also, so you may want to contact them before ordering to see if they offer a forum discount.

As an option you can buy a roll of the tinted film and cut it yourself with an xacto knife to fit your lights.

After doing my research, I found that the chrome trim around the taillights is in fact plastic welded. So, if you were to forcibly try and remove the chrome trim, you would ruin the housings. I used this tint from American Muscle and it fit well on my 15 taillights WITH the chrome trim. Click the IG link in my sig to see the taillights.

I have an entire LE package I would be willing to trade for non LE parts. I am talking Grill rear panel and tail lights. Let me know.

Is this confirmed?
No part number for this LE tail light chrome trims?
Is there an identical after market chrome trim available.

Just wondering, is the LE tail light shape the same than 2018+?

I'm not sure, but when you shop tail lights, our are different so I would lean to them being part of the housing and not a separate trim piece.

I know tons of people who replaced their 15-17 taillights with 18-22 taillights and it fit right in, including some with 50th anniversary Mustangs as well. The chrome trim does not separate from the taillight housing itself so if you're looking to add the chrome trim around your taillights, you will have to get the housings that already have the trim. In terms of replacement part numbers, I have yet to find one almost 7 years later. Replacements might be locked to a vin number but I cannot confirm.

I do know that they did release a special "Pony Package" for the 2018 Mustang that did include chrome trim in the front grille and window trim but I am not sure if they included the chrome trim around the taillights.

Thank you guys!

I have expressed myself inaccurately regarding the shape.
That all 6g tail lights fit mechanically all 6g is clear to me.

The shape / design of the outer part was changed from 2017 to 2018.
Seems like the LE taillights have the -2017 design.

I am looking for a chrome trim for 2018+ desgn. 🙈

Maybe some LE owners swapped allready to 2018+ tail lights and found some matching chrome trim with the OEM LE look?
