Roof marker light burned out

I just noticed one of my roof marker lights is burned out on my 2016. Is this just a simple "pull off the cover and replace the light" kinda thing? Or is more involved because, well, it's more involved?

Cool. Thanks. It's raining and I didn't want to get wet, so I cheated and asked for help.

Well, this is turning into a can of worms. I took the initial cab light off and found what looked like a simple replacement set of three LED's. Wrong. It turns out these are Recon lights and it seems you have to replace the whole collection at once. Holy Crap, and this stuff ain't cheap! Is there a better way?


Oh, and the light isn't totally out. When I go to open the door, sometimes it flickers on and off, then either stays on, or stays off. Grrr.

Pray that the truck had OEM lights installed. Go find those mounts and lenses...might be better for the long run.

Wonder if the VIN # was looked up, would that show whether or not the truck came with them?

The shame is, I like the look of the smoked lenses as opposed to the usual amber lights. I'd rather have no markers than amber ones.

I found a set of these Recon lights (five in all) on Amazon for about $70 (which I would opt for) but I am in NO way going to lower the headliner to install them. Talk about out of my pay grade . . . And if one went bad in only two years, that's not saying much for Recon (which I've read a lot of bad JuJu about).

Pray for me! Ha.

I had a nightmare with Recon on my first Super Duty and swore them off, many of my friends have as well. I simply bought smoked cab lights off eBay and bought super bright led amber bulbs and put them in. Looks great and total cost was less than $50 for all.

I wish I could do that. If I had 'stock' Ford roof lights, that would be the way I would go as well. But, they're not. They are the dreaded Recons and I fear I'm stuck with them.

But as I mentioned in a previous post, I like how the smoke colored lenses look during the day and that's all that really matters. In fact, the more of them that burn out, the better. Then I don't have to feel bad about one that doesn't work. Maybe I should look into cutting off power to all of them so they don't work at all. They just look cool during the day.

I know this sounds a bit strange, but I'm really not a fan of roof marker lights anyway.

Hahah that's a good one. Yea, that's what I hated about those lights. I loved my Atomic's on my '06 but if something were to fail (thankfully none did) I would have had to swap the whole thing out. I actually swapped out the Recon's that were on my '07 for factory lights. It wasn't easy or fun but they were way more reliable.
