Recon Lights

Ok guys. I have an 04 all white 250 sport cc lb with the 05 front face lift and headlights. Going to do the recon side marker lights, clearance lights, rear cab light along with bed rail and the white lightning tail light bar. On a truck like mine what do you all like better the clear or smoke look?? I am leaning towards clear to match the head/fog and piaa's going in the bumper. what you all think?

anyone have some good pics of either on a white truck:thanks:

Go with the clear lights. It'll give it a nice uniform look. I wish they made the clear lights for the obs trucks. Post some pictures when you done.

I just couldn't wait. I went with clear. I got the cab, corner markers, 3rd break, and 44" white lightning tail light. I also went with a set of the bed/cargo are lights and i got an extra set of the bed/cargo area lights to mount under the door rails. I am going to wire them in so that when my amp step swings down it lights up the step. My buddy who gets the lights said I may need to hold off on the cargo/bed lights because he may no have them in stock being so new but thats the idea anyhow.:

Do you want a picture of the clear on a white truck? I'll take a picture but you'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon.

I think the Recon stuff is pretty cool, not much else out like it, but also think they're a tad overpriced. Guess when your the only one doing something you can have that luxury...

yeah why didnt I know about this deal months ago?? :mafia but good choice and recons price is reasonable..they are one of the only if not the only company whose aftermarket products have the same look as the stock ones just in smoked or clear. and they look bad azz!! I can't wait for their headlights and taillights to come out! : post a pic when you have everything on!!

I was at a GTG in VA, one guy had the RECON Turn Signal lights for the mirrors. I wasn't impreseed at all with the fit of the lights. There was a small gap all around the light and the housing. For what he paid you would think the quality would be better. He had already installed the "Line of Fire" under the tailgate, they were held on with screws and clamps. I wan't impressed with the Line of Fire product.

I personally have the third brake light and cab clearance lights from Recon. The cab lights are great quality, good looking and bright. The third brake is good quality and is bright but has started to yellow a bit.

It's made in China, you get what they paid for.
