recon tail lights install???

Ok guys, so I got my Recon smoked tail lights in the mail today, and am in the garage right now. Got the old ones out and got ready to put in the new ones, but since the new ones are LED, the top bulb doesn't go into the hole like the factory ones, there is a plug on the Recon light that doesn't match up with anything from the factory. Has anybody else done these?? What did you have to do?? Maybe I am just being dumb and missing something very easy??? I am hoping that I don't have to go and buy a different connector now since it didn't say that anywhere on Recons site...Help please guys... Thanks

take out your bulb from the factory harness... that part plugs into the Recon one.... its actually pretty simple....

Yep, we did it on Mikes(Mudrunnignpig) truck. You have to remove the bulbs and use the stock harnesses to plug into the recon Harnesses. Very easy.

YES PEOPLE...I am an idiot About 2 seconds after I posted the question, I looked again and figured out that all I do is plug the new plug into where the old bulb was... Sorry Raul, I bought them directly from Recon... I guess I will have to pay more attention to the site vendors from now on... My bad guys...
