Led cab lights (bulbs)

Currently I have smoked recon can lights with their led bulbs. Honesty te bulbs suck, they go on and off randomly. I've tried changing the positions of them but it appears as they aren't built with the highest quality because te LEDs are loose on the circuit board.

What bulbs would you guys recommend? Does anyone have some pics of the different type of bulbs installed and illuminated?

Do you have the high output 3 Watt or the 1 Watt LED bulbs? I just purchased the 3 watt bulbs like I had on my last truck and they gave me no issues. Hopefully the quality has not degraded. I could not find anywhere else to purchase like bulbs.

Someone posted about a LED bulb that is really bright here: Clearance light bulbs

I'm interested in these, but the person who posted them hasn't replied yet...

I have the recons on my truck right now and have no issues at all here is what they look like I'm getting my amber ones put in and they are bright and way better than stock . The white is illegal in my state but I run the recons in my other two trucks and haven't had any issues

You have the recon bulbs?

Yes they are the recon bulbs . They are the led ones right off the website I put them on all my trucks and have had very good luck with them . Here is what they are they are the three watt ones





194 T-10 High-Power 3-Watt L.E.D. Bulbs - AMBER - 5pc Kit REPLACES ALL FIVE FACTORY HALOGEN FORD CAB LIGHT BULBS in all 99-14 Ford Trucks (6 L.E.D's on Each Bulb) FIVE BULBS PER PACKAGE
These special high-wattage LED bulbs replace the halogen 194-style bulbs in all factory installed 1999-2014 Ford Superduty & Excursion cab roof lights & are also a great upgrade when adding RECON smoked, clear, or super white lenses to any existing Ford cab roof lights
