Got the Recon lighted fender emblems on. Pics!!

Got them on, look sweet IMO. Not impressed with the design of the wiring though. These are factory Ford emblems, then Recon cuts out the F350 or F250 and installs the lighted part on the backside of the emblem. The factory line-up tabs are still on. On the truck there are 3 holes. Two for the line-up tabs, and one in the center. Well, the wires dont line up with the center hole. Soooo, either drill out the center hole larger (already a 1/2 hole) or do like I done, cut off the tabs, and line up so the wires go through the center hole, and place so the emblem covers up the other two holes.

Here are some shots... Pics are not the best, but you will get the idea...








I also got a red kit for the tailgate. Only used one. The emblems are made for the front fenders, the tailgate emblems have different line-up holes. I cut off the left tab, used the right side, and drilled a new hole for the wires. I also drilled a hole at the bottom of the tailgate to run the wires down behind the bumper, installed a 4 round trailer plug (case I want to remove the tailgate) and tapped into the trailer plug for power.

Those emblems look sweet. Not sure about all of the chrome accents though.

Neat product, but that's way too much chrome, lighting, and random stuff there for about 5 trucks, much less one.

Less is more people.

It's a shame the quality fit and finish are up making a new low standard of production for Recon. Good you made it work for you. Those things look great!!

Towards the end of August, a month after I installed these the drivers side light started to get a dark spot at the bottom of the 350. I told the dealer and they contacted their distributer. That lady spent 2 days before finally finding someone from RECON to talk to, took another month for RECON to agree to warranty the light. The dealer and I are still waiting for the light to arrive and its the end of October. The red one on the tailgate is doing the same thing now.

When it rains or I wash the truck, water gets inside the light and you can just apply a little pressure to the emblem and see the water moving inside. I think thats the problem, they are not sealed up good enough.

RECON has some neat items, but the quality of these need some work and the customer service sucks!!!
