Recon raised letter decals suck

So I order a set of these and they don't stick for ****! Place I bought them from had recon send me another batch and they stick a bit better but are still worthless. They look pretty cool before they start popping back off. I like them so I am debating super glueing them on or something. Anybody have these...if so do yours stick properly or did you use other means to keep them on?

I have not tried a set of these but if the quality is anything like the smoked mirrior lights then it does not supprise me they are crap. FYI the mirrior lights are, IMO junk ! The connectors are so cheap and the signal light portion did not even work. I returned them the next day !

I'm glad I read all this stuff about Recon before I spent over $400 on a set of tail lights.

Don't even get me started on Recon, but maybe some good 3M automotive adhesive could work and it won't screw up your paint.

My buddy has the recon letter and they are faded really bad. I have the stickers off ebay on two of our trucks and they look great even after a year and a half. They are ford licensed but not sure who makes them exactly. Recon is junk

Is there a petition service available that could be used to deter ppl buying recon products? I don't recall ever reading a truly positive review yet ppl continue buying the products...

Try some 3M two sided tape & clean all the wax off your tailgate...... you probably already did huh...... good luck Nelson

I like my Recon ''Big Rig'' LEDs, but thats all I have,

Trav I have the cheaper decals off ebay as well, they still look great

I wish I knew about those eBay ones before I bought recrap's stuff...cheaper too. Just bought them off eBay. Anybody have a recommendation for smoked led tail lights in an other than recon brand that doesn't suck?
