Recon Cab Lights

Any Feedback on these? I think smoked will go well with my smoked mirror markers and Dark Stone paint.

Those look cool. Are the factory bulbs clear or amber? You might have to but amber bulbs if they are clear.

I remember a few weeks ago someone (maybe Billy??) posted about how they started leaking pretty quickly. I recall the thread de-volved pretty quickly into how Recon's quality left a lot to be desired.

I've had'em on my truck for a few months no issues. They come with new amber bulbs as the factory bulbs are clear.

I have them, they're decent. One of em turns on and off when it pleases. Besides that the only other bad thing I can say is that the black paint on mine maybe lasted a week before it started chipping up real bad. For the money I expected a better quality product.

I've had them for a few months with no issues. I get complements on them, especially the dealers.

The smoked covers look great compared to the stock amber ones!

If you have factory cab lights and are just replacing the covers, Recons are excellent! But if you are adding cab lights to your truck then I suggest buying a set of factory cablights and adding the smoked lenses to them.

The Recon cablight kit is not very good quality

Here's mine with smoked covers:

I agree 100%. I've had zero issues with mine.
