That surprises me. We used them on our previous Escape for over three years and are now using them on our new Cherokee. They work great and not a mark at all You simply make sure you lift the up when taking them off. I have two sets (one for backup still unopened) and got them on a $10 Harbor Freight special.

My first today was a Colorado that had additional bulbs. Next toad was a Tahoe and I went to the BlueOX light bar that fit into the tow receiver on the Tahoe. Only reason I didn't use mag light on the Tahoe - they'd be higher than the legal limit for tail lights. No such problem with the Escape and the Cherokee. They are so convenient we'd never even consider additional bulbs or diodes.
