RECON LIGHT/PARTS= CHEAP JUNK!

Well I guess this is a good as time as ever for a little rant! I've had 3 Recon products for my 08 F250, I was under the assumption for the price I was buying quality products! First, the Smoked LED mirror lens they had a horrible fit and finish and whistled, when I installed them, second the smoked LED 3rd brake light began to flicker 2 months after I got it and finally the cargo lights wont work period, to top that off because of the crap manufacturing I got water in my cab on numerous ocassions! Finally the LED tail lights, after about 3 months I noticed that 1 LED was going out on the left, after contacting them, they told me they could offer me a discount on a new set! LOL I was like WTF are you kidding! Its only been 3 months and your crap is already failing! I got so pissed I removed all my recon parts and went back with my factory parts after having them all smoked by my shop.....

BASICALLY ALL I WANT TO SAY IS RECON IS CRAP, THIER PRODUCTS ARE CRAP, THIER CUSTOMER SERVICE IS CRAP! BUILD GOOD PRODUCT AND STAND BEHIND WHAT YOU SELL!

Im having issues to. I have had two of the interior lights go out, one they replaced for free and the other i had to pay for. If i hit a bump just right one or two of my cab lights will flicker or turn off. Poor quality for a high price.

I have been lucky with mine so far I guess. have the smoke led cabs, smoked mirror lights, and smoked 3rd brake. I did put a touch of silicone around the 3rd brake light as it did not seem to seal well. I was thinking of the tailights, but I too have seen several people who have LEDs out in them within the 1st year. I won't spend $300 on that crap.

I had a problem with the smokd 3rd brake light as well, started to flicker after 2 months, and after 3 months 3 LEDs were out. So that one right there is a piece of $h!t. The LED tailgate strips seem to work well though, I had one for 2 years not a single problem, but then one day, stepped on it and it was done.

It does seem like they have problems with LED's... which is ironic considering the percentage of parts they make that contain them. I have the mirror lenses that whistle slightly, which doesnt bother me, but if one burns out... thats going to be annoying.

Smoked cab lenses are great though... since Ford did the wiring.

Its one thing if a part fails... but another, for a company to turn a blind eye and make the customer feel unappreciated for their business. If they keep it up, things will not work out for them in the long run. People will curiously google the part they see advertised, and be taken to forum threads like this one.
