Recon led tail lights

If changing out to the Recon led tail lights, does this affect the speed of the turn signals blinking? I know they have less draw & changing to leds does change this on some vehicles. Also, for the ones that have made this mod, are they brighter & is the back up light useful. Some white leds are junk as far as lumens put out. Thanks for your help.....

It should not affect the speed, it didn't on my LBZ. There is still enough of a draw with the front bulbs. The lights are brighter, atleast on the GM Recon lights, the backup light is a regular bulb.

Recons have a built in resistor. So they flash at what ever speed your truck blinks with the stockers.

Yep--their 3rd brake light is the same way with the built-in resistor so they truly are a plug/play install.

Just remeber if you drive in SNOW they don't get hot enough to melt it so your back end has no brake lights!
