Other than the 300 dollar price tag for the recons, I think they are pretty sweet.

Are you looking for, shall I say "aftermarket look" or just wanting LED taillights???

I just done this mod, Led light idea And am happy with the results. I have about $50 invested in this project. Used the factory light housing, LED lights from Wal Mart, and load equalizers from Auto Zone.

Have the factory look, but bright LED lights.

I just read a whole 6 page thread about how bad recon quality and customer service is so if I were you, I'd go with the 08 lights. Cant beat OEM quality..

I like this idea a lot. What does the load equalizer do?

I was also thinking about sanding my current lights and having them clear coated to bring back a brand new finish.

A load equalizer keeps your turn signals from flashing fast when you replace them with leds. I'd just buy an electronic flasher and call it a day

Electronic flasher, would that solve a fast flash even if you replace both front and rear turn signals???
