100% don't buy Recon. You're on the rite path. Recons give you 2 huge connectors to jam in the side pockets. 9 times outta 10 they LEAK then burn out. ****TY!!!

I have the recon lights. Every now and then I have to hit the mirror to wiggle the wire in the right place. I might just re-do the wiring myself and call it good.
I do have to say they look good tho.

On my mirrors I used nighthshades paint and clearcoat on my blinkers. Another member suggested it and it turned out awesome. Its a cheap way to get it done and if your going to replace them its worth a shot.

yes its just a black clear coat, so basically its up to you how dark you wanna keep tinting them. The more coats you add the less yellow you see and they look smoked out. Still super bright at night.
