LED Tail lights

Anyone running LED tails on their Ex? Brand? Likes/dislikes? I personally prefer the ones that LOOK stock, then my second choice would be the ones that look stock but are slightly smoked. Pics too if ya have 'em. Thanks!

Just stay away from Recon.

In the past I've run LED bulbs in stock housings... a good bulb looks awesome back there... just another option, you can get good bulbs for ~30$

There are way too many threads about how poor quality recon stuff is for me to ever buy anything from them... I'd buy cheapo eBay first.

If ya like the look of the factory ones check this thread out... I got my LED lights from Wally Mart.. You will also need load equalizers for each side.

DIY led tail lights

Around $50 total invested and they work and look great!!

I bought these for my excursion and I love them! They look stock, but very modern looking. The quality on them are very nice and they come with the rubber seal around them like the factory tail lights.

I dont have a nighttime shot yet, but they are very bright and look kickass!
