Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here with my quick review of the Recon Clear LED Third Brake Light option available for your 2009 and 2014 F-150. You should be checking out the Recon option here if you want to replace and upgrade the factory third brake light in your F-150 and use a clean clear option as opposed to the popular smoked option. Now this would also be a great way to go here if you're looking to transform or convert all the lighting in your F-150 to the modern LED technology and get that bright white glow as opposed to the dull yellow glow of your factory incandescent bulbs. Now there's a simple part with a few basic talking points. Let's quickly touch on your outside appearance. Now again, guys, this is gonna be a great option if you're looking to ditch that factory brake light, replace it with a clear option which is going to be a nice alternative to the smoked option. This is a good way to go if you're doing more custom lighting to your truck and maybe want to pair this up with a set of clear taillights. Now, in my opinion, guys, the factory third brake light on these particular F-150s is just flat out ugly and really does nothing for your outside appearance. So by ditching that Altezza-styled factory third brake light, replacing it with a clean, clear option here again from Recon, you're gonna be upgrading your appearance no matter what color your truck. You're also gonna be making upgraded materials as well thanks to the modern LED lighting. So let's quickly talk about some of the benefits of that modern LED lighting. So let's quickly talk about some of the benefits of that modern LED lighting. Well, guys, for starters, they're going to last the life of your truck. And more importantly, they're gonna be much brighter than the factory incandescent lighting. And that's gonna be really important here because, again, we are dealing with a brake light, so being a brighter light over your factory light is only going to increase your safety on the road during the day and at night and that's very important to point out. As far as those LEDs, well, you got three two-watt red LEDs right in the center of this light. This is gonna be the portion that handles your braking duties. And in addition to that, you have six two-watt clear or white LEDs that are going to illuminate the bed and shed some light on your cargo. Now this is really where you're gonna notice a big improvement over the factory lighting. Because those LEDs, again, are gonna be much brighter, you're really going to be illuminating the bed much better than before, especially during the night time hours. When it comes to impact to your wallet, I think you'll find the Recon product to fall right around the $100 price point here, which might sound a little steep to some of you guys at home, but from what I can tell you here is that the Recon products are all built very well and they definitely perform as advertised. In addition to that, guys, these third brake light options are 50-state legal, so you should have no concerns there. Installation of the Recon option will require a small amount of wiring and is going to differ slightly whether you have a standard F-150 or if you have a Raptor. Now, for the most part, guys, you're basically matching colors here, black to black, red to red. However, if you do have a standard F-150, you're gonna need to connect the white wire on the Recon third brake light to the blue wire in your factory harness. Other than that, guys, you're looking at basic hand tools here, screwdriver to basically remove the light itself, and your favorite crimping tool, soldering iron, whatever you need to tackle the wiring. Again, very simple and straightforward install here, guys, so one out of three wrenches on my difficulty meter, and you should be wrapped up in about 30 minutes from start to finish. In my opinion, guys, the Recon light is built very well and it's gonna be a huge improvement in both appearance and functionality over that factory third brake light. So be sure to check out a Recon option for your F-150 right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Improved Visibility. If you aren't a huge fan of the euro style factory third brake light that came on your 2009-2014 F-150, upgrade today and not only improve styling, but enhance visibility. Ditch that weak incandescent brake light and install this high intensity, 50 State Legal LED version. Utilizing a total of three centered red LEDs, you can be sure to get noticed when coming to a stop in your pickup. Not only will braking safety improve, but the six outer white LEDs will provide increased light shining into your truck bed to easily see your cargo.

Quality Construction. Using a fully waterproof black housing and clear lens, this Recon LED 3rd Brake Light will last for tens of thousands of hours and is manufactured out of state of the art components and an advanced electrical system. The LED bulbs utilized in this brake light won't flicker or shake like some florescent or halogen bulbs do and they are designed to outlast your F-150.

Hardwiring Required. Due to the style of the Ford factory wiring, this LED Brake Light will require hardwiring to complete the installation. While this may seem intimidating, the process is actually fairly simple and shouldn't take very long to complete.

Application. This Recon Clear LED Third Brake Light is specifically designed for use on all 2009-2014 Ford F-150s and Raptors.

          Review from Smoked LED Third Brake Light (09-14 F-150)

          Very Nice! Looks Awesome! Love it!

          This Third Brake Light looks amazing! Only took about 30 mins to install. I did go with the splicing of the wires to wire this up correctly. And added some silicon around the light. The included and attached gasket does touch the trucks body, but, there is a gap between the new plastic light and the trucks body work. Also, in Illinois....we get snow and ice. So, i didn't want any chance of having a leak. Really not a hard task at all....bought a couple of e-z splice connectors and had no cutting of the original wires. I love the looks of the new light. It really helps the third brake light not stick out like it is totally out of place. My neighbor has a F-150 and now wants one for his truck.

          Pretty quick install, replaced leaking OEM third brake light. Light gives great output, looks sharp, and has a thick gasket. I did also apply a bit of RTV Silicone just to be safe.

          FX150 upgrade.

          All of my lenses on my truck are smoked so when I swapped out the clear third brake light cover with the smoked cover it definitely looked much sharper. Easy to change but needed to use silicone to seal it to avoid leakeage. Like the LED upgrade.
