I wonder if the tail light guards would mess with the sensors?

I started thinking about this when I watched the edmunds video of them taking a sledge to the side of the aluminum body. They mentioned that the tail light assembly was cracked and replaced it.

the edmunds video showed that damage done to the box transfered stress to the tail lamp and cracked it. You want to take this truck through the desert at high speed, especially if you're catching air there is a rear of twisting, thus cracking... or what happens if you bottom out the suspension hard coming out of the air?

True.
This will more than likely lead owners to check their tails for cracking, i know i'd be looking out.

Has to be a way they can remedy it before these get into the hands of consumers.

But is it at all common for your taillights to get damaged? I don't often see that unless you get rear ended.

Yup and depending on the drop and how hard you land and so on, that impact can have quite the impact on parts
