Recon Taillights

I'm about to decide on taillights and the choices are Recon or '08 style.

Pics would great in helping decide!

What do you guys think?

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???
