Recon cab light install

I just got a set of recon amber lens cab lights and threw them on today when I got home from work. Fit awesome like everyone else has said and they look great. I will say I am impressed with the wiring harness supplied, and the leads for the leds are very small, I guess that they are heavy enough for leds, but still I would have liked to see slightly heavier gauge. I really wish they had removable bulbs like the oem lights do. All in all very happy with the look and fit couldnt beat the price!

Ill have to take some pics during the day, I started the project around 5 and finished and had everything cleaned up and put away by 930. Went nice and smooth and now I wish I had done it sooner!

I dont see why you couldnt throw on a set of lights, the wiring is as easy as finding the brown wire by the pass. kick panel and connecting the green wire in the kit to it. Then ground the black to the body and your all set. Its really very easy, the hardest part is measuring and drilling. As far as drilling the holes I just used a step bit, started the holes with an 1/8 in bit and then used the step bit to get them just big enough.
