RECON MIRROR LEDS

Any tips for installing the recon mirror replacement lights on a 2011...

Online instructions don't help me. I'm a visual learner.

How hard was it?

I just had the RECON smoked LED cab lights installed on my truck and they look awesome! I just ordered a pair of the smoked LED mirror lights to make the match. I don't plan to pay anyone to put these on. Drilling holes in the roof I will pay someone but I think I can do these myself. So how hard were they?

Mirror lights were easy. 10 minutes. Behind the upper mirror the is a clip that pops the light out with a flathead. Push the top of the upper mirror in so the bottom of the upper mirror pops out. This will allow you to see the clip that pops out the light. Just make sure and test the lights before popping it back in. The trickiest part was trying to stuff the wires back in. Once I took a minute to read the instructions online it made sense. You'd never see the clip behind the mirror unless you knew that you were looking for.

Just installed them. Don't like how they plug in. Really cheesy made. We will see how they last.
