Recon cab lights- few questions

Going to order some recon smoked cab lights for my truck. I was looking on a few websites and the special "T" styled leds are $9 a piece making it $45 then the cab lights themselves are $35 making it $80 which is the same price as the whole kit with wiring for non cab-lighted trucks? Also do you guys even use the leds or stick with regular bulbs? Would my 05 have clear or amber bulbs under the stock amber housing? I have HIDS but i still dont want the LEDs to be too overpowering since i also still have stock bulbs in my mirror lights. Any guys have pics of smoked with LED bulbs or smoked with regular bulbs? thanks

I have smoked cab lights and just ordered some amber LEDS off ebay. those will be here tomorrow I believe. I can take some pics if you want so you can see. I don't think they will be too over powering. I have amber bulbs in mine right now and they are bright. I just wanted something a little brighter. as far as your stock bulbs..... they would be clear with you amber lenses.

I have the Recon SuperClear lenses on my truck (which I want smoked) with the T style LED's from Recon, but I have HID's as well and you can see in my sig a pic of the lights on. My stock bulbs were amber in my 06.

Yes, 4" with 5" tips. Deleted the cat. In hindsight I wish I didnt have a muffle, but it does sound good. Here's the only pic I have, same as sig but bigger.
