Best lights???

Who sells the best smoked lenses and lights? Headlights, tail lights, clearance lights, and side mirror.

Don't know if they're the best or not but Recon do make them, they seem pretty nice to me.

I can't remember who made them, i know it wasnt recon, but I had a lot of trouble with my led smoked cab lights. I would come out of somewhere and one or two lights would be half out and then next time I stopped, they would be back on. I redone all my connections and still had trouble with them. I think it was internal on the light itself. But they sure did look cool

Yea I've looked at the recon but I've heard some bad reviews before and was wondering if there were any others out there.

Anzo, Recon, and Spyder all make smoked LED lights. They're are also the "no name" cheapies off of Ebay that many say are just as good, if not better than Recon. That being said, I have Recon and was hesitant about buying them after reading all the negative posts/reviews but I took the plunge and bought taillights, third brake light, and side mirror lights and have been very pleased. Don't have any of the issues with dead LEDs or flickering.

If you want a do it yourself option, there's lots of people that spray the OEM lights with VHT Nightshade. The OEM lights are definitely higher quality than the aftermarket options out there. They fit better in my opinion.

Think I might have changed my mind about smoked headlights! These might be the best looking lights I've ever seen in my life!!!

I'm curious. He has quite a few on his Facebook. I'm wondering how well they would hold up over time.
