recon side vents.... what do you all think about them?

I know alot of people have problems with recon products. but these seem to be fairly inexpensive. Even if you didnt use the light up portion to get some black badges on the truck this would be cheap.

I guess there still on there way in.



anyone thinking about getting these?

I'd like to see a better photo of the badge itself, up close. It sounds like an interesting idea, but depends on how well they've made them.. You're right though... if it looks good up close, that's a cheap option to get a black badge. I've been a b!tch about painting mine.

I think they look sweet. too pricey for a guy saving up for a Spartan! I would like to know how hard it is to wire it up...

on the 08's wiring wont be a problem, but you could always pull the fender liner for the 03-07's. Anyone know if this is just the top piece for the 08's or is it the whole thing?
