Cab Lights: Recon or what?

So I want to put can lights on my 01 and was looking at the recon led. I've heard mixed feelings on them. What are my choices? Oem, recon anything else? Would like led..

i like the recon ones but if one ever goes out you will have to buy a whole unit since you cant replace the bulb in it...

IMO get the OEM base and the recon lenses with LED bulbs... that way you can replace the bulbs if they ever go out

I went with this guy on eBay when I bought mine. It was a complete kit including all wiring needed AND a pre-cut template for your holes as well as a diagram. Plus, if you have any questions, you can call the seller and he's very good to work with over the phone. Very helpful guy.

The price has gone up on his kit since I bought mine, but it's a turn key deal. And that template he sends is an absolute lifesaver!

Oh, and I went with OEM after hearing all the negative feedback on the Recon lights and leaking issues. Eventually, I may buy some LED 194 replacement bulbs, but they still look good to me as they are. Look at the pic in my signature, those are the lights from that seller. They're OEM and they fit exactly like they should, no leaks!
