Review & Install Video

Hey, everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, and this is my quick review Recon Smoked Third Brake Light LED option available for all 2009 to 2014 F-150s. You should be checking out the Recon Smoked Third Brake Light option here if you prefer the dark and stealthy appearance of a smoked lens, as opposed to the clear factory lens and would also like to add the benefits of modern LED lighting. Now, this one would look great on its own, of course, here, but it would probably look even better, in my opinion, when paired up with an aftermarket tail light of your choice or even one of Recon's aftermarket tail light options available for the same generation F-150. Now, as you might expect, guys, this is a simple part with a few basic talking points. Let's first talk about the outside appearance. Now, that smoked out look or murdered out look, whatever you want to call it, is probably one of the most popular to customize the appearance of your truck, whether you want to customize or smoke every light on the truck or maybe just a few individual lights. Now, in my opinion, guys, the factory third brake light option with these particular generation F-150s is just flat out ugly and does nothing for the rear appearance of your truck. So by going with the Recon Smoked option here, you're going to be eliminating that factory Altezza-style third brake light. And it's going to look good, thanks to that dark, smoky appearance, no matter what color your F-150. And it's also going to flow really well with a tinted rear window. In addition to that smoked lens here, you're also getting the benefits of the modern LED lighting. Now, those LEDs are going to last the life of your truck and are going to be far brighter than the dull, dim factory incandescent lighting, which is important when dealing with something like this with a smoked lens because you want to make sure you're not going to be losing any visibility. The Recon Third Brake Light does feature the combination of three 2-watt red LEDs right in the center. These are going to handle your braking duties, and on the ends you're finding six 2-watt white LEDs that are going to illuminate the bed and shine some light on your cargo. I do want to point out that the white LEDs, while a little bit brighter than your stock, still leaves a little bit to be desired but ultimately it's not a huge deal. And at just around $100 bucks, the Recon light might be a little pricey for some folks out there, but overall the Recon stuff is built very well and performs as advertised. And just as a final note here, guys, these things are 50-state legal, so there are no worries there. As far as the install with the Recon option here, there is a small amount of wiring, and it will differ slightly if you have a standard F-150 or if you have a Ford Raptor. Now, for the most part, guys, you're just matching colors to colors here, white to white or black to black. However, if you do have a standard F-150, you're going to need to connect the white wire on the Recon Third Brake Light to the blue wire in your factory harness. For this, you're just basically using a Phillips head screwdriver to remove and replace the factory third brake light, replace it with the Recon option here. And then for the wiring, you're basically looking at your favorite set of wire strippers, crimping tool, or soldering iron. Even though there is a small amount of wiring needed for this install, guys, it's very straightforward, one out of three wrenches on my overall difficulty meter and no more than 30 minutes from start to finish. Whether you're looking to match the other smoked lights on your F-150 or if you just like the look of this thing on its own, the Recon light is built very well and will be a huge improvement in appearance and functionality over your factory third brake light. So be sure to check out a Recon option for your rig right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

High Intensity Lighting. If you want to black out the lights on your F-150 and obtain a stealthy, intimidating appearance, don't forget about your third brake light. Bring your vision full circle and replace your factory light with a Smoked LED Light designed by Recon. Utilizing 3 centered red LEDs and 6 outer white LEDs, this 50 State Legal upgrade offers amplified lighting during braking and improved visibility into your truck bed.

Quality Construction. Featuring a smoked out lens and waterproof black housing, this direct replacement LED 3rd Brake Light will outlast your F-150 and is designed utilizing only state of the art components and an innovative electrical system. The nine LED bulbs found in this brake light won't flicker or shake as some florescent or halogen bulbs tend to do and they will provide your pickup with brighter, more intense rear illumination.

Hardwiring Required. Due to the style of the Ford factory wiring, this Smoked LED Brake Light will require hardwiring to complete the installation. While this task may seem a bit daunting, the process is actually fairly straight forward and shouldn't take too long to complete.

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

    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.

    Recon Clear LED

    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.

    Another great lighting product from Recon. Great upgrade from factory 3BL. Visibility and increase of lumens and coverage of the bed area is awesome, much better than expected. Install was easy, took about 20-25 minutes. Fast shipment again from American Muscle! Highest recommendation
