Sorry about cheesy thread title, somehow I couldn't resist...

Got one (a Recon-White Lighting bar) for Christmas and I'm lucky enough to have a warehouse I can pull into to, so my install wasn't affected by the cold temps we have here. Took about a half hour to install and the only glitches were that Ford uses funny wire colors so I had to guess which wire to splice for the reverse lights (got it right first try....)

Makes the stock reverse lamps look orange/yellow so I'll be replacing those asap with some led's.....

My wife bought it for me, ordered it right from Recon's website-it was on sale and I found the promo code "4x4" worked to give us an extra discount. Shipping was fast and service was great-definitely reccomend them (but shipping from Florida pretty much killed any bargain we got...)..

I hope it doesn't matter that I haven't obscured my plate # in the pics, I don't think it really matters enough to justify it for my lazy self...



My truck in all her glory-Needs a bath and the back looks a bit low due to winter weight-yes the capper is off an old toyota but it was only $80.00-not $1200.00-Wheels look better in person I swear, this photo doesn't do them justice.

Thats nice man, I build all my pulse drivers and ran triplle 140 lumen white leds for my interior lights. You going to build your own led brake lights?

No, I wish I had the skills to build that kind of stuff. I just ordered this and I'm picking up the reverse bulb replacements at crappy tire. I wasn't planning on doing the brake lights as I don't like the look of most of the led brake lights I've seen (they tend to be Escalade style)...

so its kind of like a big 3rd brake light and signal?

Exactly...

Looks nice.

I sure hope not! With my luck someone would, and I'd get arrested for impersonation...

does it also make a rainbow?

I think that model is only available on Davie St.




Thanks for the feedback, glad you all like it![cheers]
