Recon tails and 3rd brake light installed this weekend. Appreciate your opinions for or against. I'm impartial at this point.

I had a set of them in my last truck and was considering the red LED version for this truck since I don't have any black going on, I can't paint them, and the chrome ones are ricey. I personally don't have an issue with the black housing, it's a different take on the blacked out tail light look without losing light. I'd say if you wanted to take it a step further open them up and paint that red reflector as well. But over all I personally like them.

I would tint the tails to match the 3rd brake light, other than that I love mine also and looks good on your truck

NICE!

I want to get some for my '11 Express. Are those the smoked ones? All the pics I find of those look like the chrome ones with a smoked lens. They look great on your truck!

These are the smoked ones. The third brake light is pretty dark compared to the tails, but that's the way they come. On black it looks fine, but it might be more noticeable on another color.

I've heard that there is another company that sells lights that look just like the recons for a lot less. They're all made in China so I guess it doesn't matter. I think the brand was spyder or something like that.

I agree with Blue (as usual).. The chrome would be the "rice" look as long as you stay black I think it looks nice !

I think they would look better tinted, but then it would kinda defeat the purpose of spending all that money for the recons hahaha.
