who has used recon lights with good luck?

I am thinking about getting recon tail lights, third brake, etc. After reading some bad reviews i'm a little worried. Who has recon lights with good results? How long haveyou had them?

I've got recon brake, 3rd brake and mirror lights. Everything is great except for the 3rd brake light. It fits like a 2nd grader made the mold. It has a 1/2 inch gap all atoning and looks terrible. I emailed them a picture and never heard back. Other than that ther are good

I agree with the above. My taillights and mirror signals fit great and look awesome. No issues after almost four years with the taillights. The third brake light functions fine, just poor fitment.

I refuse to give them anymore $$ Mounting Recon cab lights

their cab lights were crappy because they didn't spend a few more $

I informed them of the issues and sent pics they did respond but at the end of the discussion

their customer service sucked and they threatened legal action when I posted one of their nasty emails ,, FYI it's not illegal to do so but the Forum Mod decided to pull it


be careful with smoked tails = another reason to get pulled over
