Default Same headlight big price difference

http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?p...odge-RAM-09-12 549$

http://www.carid.com/2011-dodge-ram-...ts-263981.html 297$


I have the cheaper ones and have had them for 8 months and not 1 problem also both pair takes the h-1 bulbs incase u want to upgrade to hid's

And also both links say plug and play HA you have to splice into the existing lighting (turn sig wires/parking lights) to get the led's to work i can offer assistence in installing them as far as the color wire you need to splice into.

So bottom line you buy recon you buying the name just trying to save you some money

Thanks for the post! Recon is way overpriced, I'm sure a lot of people will start to take this route.

I agree 100%. Side by side, zero-very little difference between Spyder and Recon. Recon just charges out the ass. Great looking rig Dodgert

Same with the rear tails. Recon and Sonar are pretty much a mirror image with the exception of the price.

Dodgert, you happy with the brightness of the halos? are they ccfl or led? are those hid h1s in there? did they fit right in or did you have to trim a "tab" off? Lots of questions I know but I am thinking about doing this and I would reallt like a first person opinion.
