Install was a breeze, 20-30 minutes to do all three. The only part people get confused on somtimes is how to hook up the tails, the recon tail lights plug right into the tail light bulb socket, not the conector. Ive heard of guys cutting wires and others thinking they dont fit and selling them, when all ya gotta do is take the tail light bulb out and plug the recon conector in that socket. I can fully undestand this confusion though because the directions arent very clear. The other suggestion I would make is to run a bead of silicone around the inside of the 3rd brake light so it doesnt leak. As far as when the bulbs go out , I havent had to deal with that yet so Im not sure.

In fairness to the OP, I will PM you about my rims so we can keep this thread on track.

Rec26, I have found that most the big name suppliers have the same pricess on parts. What I usually do is search thru a couple and see if anyone has discounts going or maybe free shipping. The trick that works almost everytime is to order what you want , go thru the whole check out process and then when you get to the payment portion, close out of it. Usually within 24 hours you will get an email with an incentive to fnish processing your order, works almost everytime. good luck

Just some questions.

So I did the install they look awesome

Just wondering like the tail light don't sit super flush with the truck like there's a gap not big but enough for water to go in I guess it's not like a seal is this normal

Also the 3rd brake light the light fade very dim when off but they don't look like they ever fully close they look on very very very dim.

All else I love em so far
