Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Recon Smoked LED Tail Lights, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. These tail lights will completely change up the look of your Jeep. The smoked lenses give really stealth look during the day, and the LEDs provide plenty of light so you'll still be seen at night. The lights on your JK are run through a CANBUS system, which means you can't easily change out an incandescent bulb for an LED one, not without having a fast flash issue on your turn signals, or some additional wiring. Recon has made these a really nice, easy plug-and-play package, that doesn't have any kind of fast flashing, or any wiring necessary. Now, those of you guys who do more hardcore offroading, aren't going to want to spend this much money on a tail light. You know that when you get on those tight trails, there's always a chance of breaking a light, and I for one would not want to break one of these. But, if you're somebody who stays on the road or on the light wide open trails, and you like the look of the smoked tail light, these are a good option. These tail lights will function just like your factory tail lights, but the LEDs have that crisp on and off for that modern look, and they're really bright for both safety and that cool factor. Changing out a tail light on a JK could not be any easier. All you need to do is remove two screws, pop the tail light out, and because these are plug-and-play, plug the new ones in, and you're done. The whole install should take less than an hour, and the only tool you need is a Phillips head screwdriver. Recon makes a premium product and the price reflects it. There are some less expensive LED tail lights out there, but Recon makes a really high quality light that's completely plug-and-play. So if you stay off the hardcore trails where there's a chance of breaking a light, and you're after that stealth or blacked out look that a smoked lens can provide, these fit the bill. And the LEDs provide plenty of light, so you're definitely going to be seen. If you like these and you want to go LED on the other marker lights on your jeep, Recon offers a third brake light in both clear and smoked, as well as turn signals and marker lights for the front of the Jeep. And if you like these tail lights, but you wanted some different color options, these are offered in clear and smoked red. So that's my review of the Recon Smoked LED Tail Lights, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Aggressive Styling. Recon's Smoked LED Tail Lights pair the aggressive styling you want with superior LED lighting for on and off road use. Unlike flimsy tint options, these tail lights feature a durable smoked lens to provide the tough black out look you need and want without peeling or flaking. Each light is packed with super bright white LED reverse lights and red brake and running LED lights.

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

He says in the video that they should be kept more on the road or open trials. Does this mean you can use them on the regular street?

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?

    More upscale looking than stock

    I bought these lights, and installation took 15 min, only because my screws were hard to get back in. The look is much more upscale than stock. They are much brighter and attention getting as well. Backing up at night you will notice a huge difference, as the white LEDs light up the night.

    Outstanding

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Love the look of these lights as well as the ease of installation. Only issue I had was condensation building up in one of them. Extreme Terrain was outstanding and immediately exchanged them for me. Hoping the second pair does the trick.
