Anyone using the lights for the side mirror? I have a broken one on the DS and was thinking of replacing it with the smoked ones. How is the fit? Are there gaps?

Also, will the Dodge clearance lights work with the Ford harness? I thought they were nicer than the big Ford lights.

fit isn't perfect, I had to use a small bead of silicone to keep mine from whistling at highway speeds. With that said, I still love them and will take them any day over stock, here is a picture of mine:

For the cost you would expect a better fitting product. The one's I saw installed looked like junk.

No one tried the Recon dodge clearance lights? I would like to put them on my '06 that doesn't have any. Yea, I would like to put the '08 mirrors on the '99. Need to get it running good before I spend money on something like that tho. If I don't get it running soon I'm going to unload it.

the dodge clearance lights will fit... on a new install.... they are a 1 piece unit with LED's.. the ford ones have replacement lenses... unless you get the kit that is meant for a new install...

if your looking for prices were running a sale on all Recon stuff right now

Do I need a Ford wiring harness?
You shouldn't, it should just be a simple 12v+ and a ground. I believe the harness is there on all the trucks to the passenger side kick panel.

I did the recon replacement cab lights on my truck that already had them, now I have smoked lenses with LED lights and I just spliced the recon harness into the 2 wires for the factory harness. I did this up at the windshield though and not down in the kick, but it should be essentially the same.

only thing that concerns me is the Dodge ones are longer... the whole will not match up to the factory ford ones.... they are also a lil tiny bit more narrow... if your ok with drilling new wholes to mount the dodge ones then you can prob make it work...

My '06 doesn't have them so I'll have to drill holes. I thought they looked nicer than the Fords. They don't seem to be as tall. What is your opinion? On my '99 have the Recon clear lenses.

I also had to trim the Recon mirror lights a little, The first one was a bitc, but after I figured it out the second one went good.
DONT BUY THE THIRD BRAKE LIGHT FROM THEM, 10 of 10 have the cargo lights go out in a year, no warranty this long.

10 out of 10??? ive had mine over a year, no cargo lights out on mine. so seems to me that you should change your statement.
