Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Recon Red Smoked LED Tail Lights fitting all 2007 and up JKs. Today, we're gonna talk through the installation of these tail lights, which is a very simple one out of three wrench install. You'll be able to get this done in under an hour with just a screwdriver, but we'll talk more about the installation in just a second. We're also gonna talk through the construction and a few of the features of these tail lights. These are for anyone who's looking to change up the look of the back of their Jeep. LED lights are a nice way to give a more modern upgrade because a lot of the modern cars rolling off the assembly line do have an LED light. LED gives you that really bright, modern look and that really crisp, clean on and off that a lot of us are looking for. These Red Smoked Lights are going to be a little bit more red than Recon's Smoked Tail Lights, so you just have a little bit of a different aesthetic look to choose from. Now, Recon makes a really high-quality light. These are plug-and-play, they're definitely going to work for a good, long time, and be very easy to install. However, you are going to pay a little bit of a premium for these lights. There are some less expensive options on the market, but you may be rolling the dice a little bit with how long those individual diodes are going to work. I'm sure you've seen, driving down the road, some cheap eBay tail lights that have a couple of LEDs out and they just don't look very good when they start to burn out. You're not gonna have that problem with these Recon lights, but again, you are going to pay a little bit more upfront for them. These tail lights are going to mostly be an aesthetic mod. Now, if you've broken a tail light and you're looking for a replacement, you decide to go with an upgrade, you might land on these LED lights. But if you plan on doing the type of wheeling that could break a light, chances are you're not gonna wanna spend $400 for tail lights. You're gonna wanna get a cheaper OEM style replacement. But if you are looking for this style of light, maybe you like the more blacked-out look because that's what you're going for, or you just like the really bright and crisp, clean LED light that you get from these, these are going to be a really nice option for you. Now, with the way that the Jeep works, it runs all of the lighting through the computer system, through the CAN-Bus system, so you can't just swap an LED bulb into your factory tail light without having the hyper flash or fast flash issue. Now, that comes from an LED having a much lower resistance than an incandescent bulb and the computer on the Jeep actually thinking you have a burnt out light if you were to just put an LED bulb in that factory housing. You can, of course, get a resistor module, but then you're getting into cutting and soldering. With something like this, Recon has taken all of that into account. These are gonna be completely plug-and-play. Just unplug your old light, plug these ones in, and it has all of the resistors, all the circuitry built into it so that it works seamlessly with the CAN-Bus system on your JK. Because these are plug-and-play, again, a very simple one out of three wrench install, you'll be able to get this done in under an hour. All you need to do is, first, remove those factory tail lights, which you'll do with a Phillips head screwdriver, by removing the two screws that hold it in place. Once those screws are removed, you can pull the headlight out, disconnect the factory wiring harness, and set that light aside. From there, you'll just plug this wiring harness into your factory harness, set the light into the body, and use the included hardware to bolt it up. And that's it, very, very simple, even if you've never done automotive wiring, this is about as easy to install as changing a light bulb. This is going to be something anybody can do in your driveway with just a Phillips head screwdriver and a little bit of time. Before, I mentioned that these are around $400 for the pair of lights, which might seem a little bit steep if you start searching around on the internet. However, I truly believe that you're getting a lot of quality with these lights. Personally, this is one of those situations where pry once, buy once, you pick these up, you're gonna spend a little bit more upfront, but you're not going to have to go replace them. Sure, you can get a set for $150, $200, maybe even less, but you're going to have to be replacing them and probably replacing them often. In my opinion, if you're gonna go LED tail lights or headlights, or really any lighting, I would recommend spending a little bit more, getting something quality that's gonna hold up, and that's where Recon comes in. So, if you're looking to upgrade to an LED tail light on your JK, I think that these Recon ones are a really good option, as long as you have the budget for it. These are gonna hold up for a good, long time and look pretty good. So, that's my review of the Recon Red Smoked LED Tail Lights fitting all 2007 and up JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Aggressive Styling. Unlike any other tail lights on the market the Recon Red Smoked LED Tail Lights will give your JK a super aggressive look with a tough red smoked appearance. Far superior to cheap vinyl tint kits, these tail lights feature a durable red smoked lens to provide the bold look you need and want without peeling or flaking. Each light is packed with super bright LED lights for proper signaling and braking on or off road.

Installation. These smoked tail lights make upgrading simple and easy. Each Wrangler tail light boasts a painless plug and play installation without any extra modification or upgrades necessary.

Application. These Recon Red Smoked LED Tail Lights are specifically designed for use on 2007-2017 Jeep Wrangler JK models including Rubicon and Unlimited. Sold as a pair.

If a bulb goes out can you replace them? If a light were to stop working, can you replace the one bulb, or do you have to replace the entire brake light?

    First off let me start by saying these completely change the look of your rig. Especially when paired with the matching third brake light by recon which extreme terrain also sells. These lights seem very high quality. No hyper flash. No wiring required. Simply remove the old light using 2 screws and 5 seconds of time, plug in these amazing lights, and re install the 2 screws per light and you're ready to go crawling at your favorite mall. Perfect add on for someone looking for a stylish led taillight without the hassle.

    Great looks and performance for the price

    I am very happy with how these Recon LED taillights look and fit on my white 2015 Rubicon Hard Rock. The only change I would make to the lights is the addition of a lens over the side-facing LED chip, as it is currently exposed through a cutout in the housing, with no lens cover. These lights are bright and look super clean on the Wrangler.

    LED Tail Light

    I recently installed these on my 2014 Dragon Edition. They were in most of the photo shoots for the Dragon Concept when it first came out and looked way better than the stock tails. Looks Great, fits well and instalation was a sinch (2 screws per side and connect a wire harness). Compliments the JW Speaker Headlights very well and definitely provides more light output both in running lights and in braking (not to mention Back Up Lights as well). Would recommend these lights.

    Review from Recon Smoked LED Tail Lights (07-17 Wrangler JK)

    The installation was easy but,

    The installation was easy on my 2016 Jeep JK. plug and play. However the Left turn signal keeps going out. I say keeps going out because it keeps coming back on and working. For example, I just went to the gym (5 minutes to get there) and my warning indicator for the left turn signal came on, and then it went off and the turn signal worked, then before I get there the warning signal came back on and it didn't work. Same thing on the way back but ended up at my house with it working. I don't know what to do. They look great and I spent too much money on them to accept this problem.

    Very bright tail lights

    Switching to LED's is not cheap. But money well spent, as these lights are a lot more brighter than stock. When on, they do grab your attention! Not to mention the cool factor that they can add to your ride. Very easy to put on, plug, two screws per light,and your done. If you looking to up grade in style and function, I would recommend these!

    Looks sharp

    These tail lights make your jeep look a little more custom and are much safer because they are so bright. I blacked out my 2015 jeep rubicon and it makes it look more "stealth". Definitely worth the money. Very easy install. Plug and play. 4 screws and plug it in to the connector and your done. Enjoy!

    These recon lights were truly plug and play. Took all of 10 minutes to swap out the lights. These are brighter than the stock tail lights when you are backing up at night. I was very impressed by that. When my wife gets her new JK, if she decides on smoked lenses...I will get her these.

    not worth the money

    they look good when they're not being used, that being said, the right side blinks extremely quickly, as if I have a blinker bulb out, which I checked and I don't. the left side blinks at half the speed it used to, makes me not want to use either blinkers, they are bright which I like(I'm sure the people behind me don't appreciate as much). I gave this product two stars because for how much I paid for them I expected nothing to go wrong, and I'm not wasting my time to send them back and get new ones that might have the same issues.
