Review & Install Video
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Recon LED Third Brake Light, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This brake light is available in the smoked lens that you see here and also in a clear lens. LED marker lights have a couple of benefits over a more traditional incandescent light. LEDs are generally very bright, and they have a really crisp, clean on and off that gives your Jeep a more modern look. So whether that's what you're after or you're looking to replace your third brake light to match a theme on your Jeep of either smoked or clear lenses, this is a really nice option. However, it is very important to remember that Recon is a top-tier brand, so you're gonna get a really high-quality product, but the price tag is also going to be a little bit higher.
Like most Recon products, this is designed to be OE replacement and be completely plug-and-play, which are really nice factors because it makes installation really easy. This has six super bright red LEDs in it, regardless of whether you choose the clear or the smoked lens. Now, it is important to remember that this is designed to replace your factory third brake light on your factory spare tire mount. So if you don't have that mount anymore, but you have a mount that will hold a factory third brake light, you can use this. If you've gotten rid of your factory spare tire mount and factory third brake light mount completely, you wouldn't be able to use this product.
Like I said, Recon made this product and many of their other products to be OE replacement and really easy to install. All you'll need to do is remove the four screws that hold your factory third brake light in place. Once it's removed, you can unplug that third brake light. Then plug in your new light and reinstall it using the four factory screws that came out of the factory light. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than half an hour, and there is no wiring or specialty tools necessary.
Anytime you're considering the purchase of an LED light like this that has multiple LEDs inside of it, the quality of the diodes, the part that actually emits the light, is very important. You wouldn't wanna get a light like this that has six LEDs in it and a few months or a year later have a couple of the LEDs burn out. And with Recon, you know you're getting a really high-quality product that's gonna last a really long time. Now, along with that comes a higher price tag. With a top-tier product, you have a top-tier price tag, so as long as you have the budget for it, this is a really nice piece. However, if you don't have this kind of money to spend on a replacement third brake light, there are some less expensive options on the market. However, they are going to be a little bit lower quality.
So whether you're looking for the benefits of a more modern LED light or you're looking to go with a smoked or clear marker light lens all the way around your Jeep, this is going to be a great option for you. As we said, this is going to be a top-tier product with a top-tier price tag, but if you have the budget for it, I highly recommend going with this light. So that's my review of the Recon LED Third Brake Light, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
