LED 3rd brake lights

There are a couple LED 3rd brake lights available on eBay and I was wanting to get one for my '97 to match the black taillights and eventually a black light bar under the tailgate.

The 2 on there are these:

X3 Racing LED 3rd Brake Light
K2 Motor LED BRAKE LIGHT

The First one looks about the right shade of darkness, but looks like all the lights are red. And the 2nd one looks too light, but has white LED's where the cargo lights are. Just wondering if anyone had one and how they looked on the truck. Here is what it looks like now:






Thanks in advance

-Michael

From personal experience, I wouldn't buy a cheap led product. I've had 2 cheap brake lights and they both lasted less than a year. I also had a cheap set of led tail lights and they didn't last 6 months My Recon brake light has been good for over a year now. Some will say that Recon doesn't last either but it's been better than anything I've had so far. Just my .....

I've had 4 Recon LED line of fire tailgate strips, and everyone of them has failed. I won't waste another dime on their crap.
