Rear Cab Spoiler?

So I was looking at some trucks on eBay and I came across a 2008 F450 with a bad@$$ rear spoiler on the back of the cab. I have looked all over to try and figure out what brand/model it is or where to get one. Has anyone seen one of these or know who makes them? I'm interested to know if someone could shed some light on it for me.

Was remembering and I think they were on the cadillac escalade ext suv's. Did a search and if you go to Cadillac LED Replacement 3rd Brake Light, High Mounted Brake Lights, Third Brakelights For Escalade, Escalade EXT, ESV, Seville, SLS, STS, Catera, Chrysler Crossfire Roadster you will see a small pic. and I think that ford was custom done

That's a 3rd brake light from Recon; I would steer clear though, I saw one in my area on a new truck and the LEDs were already failing.

(They do look pretty sweet though imo)

I looked at the Recon site and I don't see anything resembling this thing. They've got replacement 3rd brake lights, but no 'spoiler' type add-ons that I could find?

It does look similar to an Escalade spoiler, but it's not red like those.

I'm still stumped.

Do NOT buy this 3rd brake light from Recon. I bought it was SADLY disappointed with the quality. It's total cheap made in china garbage for a premium price.

Do a search and there are PLENTY of bad recon threads, here's just one...

RECON LIGHT/PARTS= CHEAP JUNK!

Oh I'm well aware of all the Recon Rants. I've only had one of their products, an LED tailgate bar, and I've had it for 3 years now without issue... Knock on wood.

After reading about this thing, I'm not sure I trust 3M adhesive to keep it on the back of the cab going down the road. Seems like a poor way to attach it.

I think 3M would do the job (it's amazing stuff) but the fact is, the recon "big rig ice" lights I have on my truck are the last I will ever install. Overpriced, and after 6 months I was already losing LEDs. I had heard their customer support was awful, but tried it anyways. I was offered 15% off a new one. Never again...

I have it on my rig. I love the look but it blows balls.. white cargo leds have been failing and now they strobe and the 3m tape failed and water would leak into my old third break light hole and into my cab. I used silicon to fix the leak and havent had any problems with the red leds of the break lights. but for close to 350 bucks it should be problem free

I have mine all primed and painted (when it arrives its barely primed fiberglass) but I think I'm going to replace the light bar with an OEM 06' Cadillac EXT 3rd brake light before I install it. Then that way I get rid of the worst part of the Recon stuff, the cheap china LED's. It won't have the cargo LED's but at least it should be a little more reliable.

Thanks for the info halfregulater, i will calk the heck outta the OEM 3rd brake light hole when I go to install it as well.

Here's a link to the 06' EXT 3rd brake light bar that I'm talking about. It looks the same to me.
