dont get putco and Ive also heard about Go recon going out, I have had mine less than a year and one side of the cargo started fluttering a few weeks ago and now wont even turn on. They wont warrenty it, Ive tried fixing it, nothin its just broke lol and a waste of money. I have heard other companies are better and longer lasting but my personal taste with putco is bad news. I have led IPCW tails and projector headlights that I really like and have given me no problems at all. But the 3rd brake halfway works and looks retarted now lol Im searching for a better one now Im thinking of just adding leds to my stocker and having it tinted. Just my $.02 cents.
