RECON Projectors Installed!

Well, after bugging Ryan Baker at RECON for almost a year now, here are the 2011 SuperDuty Smoked Version. I chose to go with RECON's Xenon Lamps. The install is pretty simple but does require the assistance to hold housings during wiring. Everything is plug-n-play, except RECON has added LED lamps at the bottom of the housing and around the projectors, which can be hardwired as parking, daytime running, or upfitter control or combinations of those. For simplicity I hooked them up to the parking lights for now using "bullet-type" quick connects. Fit and finish is excellent although I clearanced one mounting hole on the passenger side for a better fit. After one rainy night of use the Xenons are nowhere near bright enough so I will be installing Hella 80 watt low-beams and Hella 100 watt hi-beams to get the light level up. Also, I notice there is a drastic cut-off in the upper spectrum of the projector which I'm guessing so as not to blind oncoming traffic. I will raise the low beams slightly to get better throw. All adjustments require removal of the housing. I like the blacked out Euro-look over the stockers. All in all a B+....upgrade to an A if the Hellas pan out....A+ if the lenses were smoked like the Tailights.
