Adding cab lights...which brand?

I want to add some smoked clear led cab lights and was wondering which brand to go with. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about recon and don't really wanna use them, so help me out here guys/gals and give me some feedback on the ones you like/dislike. Thx in advance

Use the factory Ford cab lights, then get the Recon smoked covers for them!!!

The Recon cab light kits are not very good but the covers are excellent.

Will do. Leaning towards OEM with aftermarket lenses now.

Well I will say if I was to do it over again I would go Oem but a few years ago my wife bought me the recon led cab light kit and I had it installed and have not had a single issue with them. The main problem with there LEDs are that if one goes out you have to change the whole light not just a bulb.

Dang that'd suck. So whenever I get around to it I think I'm doing OEM housing, recon smoked lenses, and superbrightLEDs 194 SMD LED bulbs
