2009-2014 F-150 Recon Ultra High Power LED Mirror Puddle Light Kit Review & Install


What’s going on, guys? Adam here with AmericanMuscle.com,
and I’m bringing you my review of the Recon Ultra High Power LED puddle lights for all
’09 to ’14 F150s including the Raptor models. If you’re an ’09 to ’14 F150 owner, and you’ve
got the factory puddle lights installed on your side mirrors and you’re looking to upgrade,
we know that the factory puddle lights aren’t exactly the greatest nor are they the most
stylish. Recon has stepped up to the plate to provide us with an ultra high-powered LED
replacement bulb that comes in your choice of the blue like I have here, red, green and
white. Guys, you’ll notice that I said they’re ultra
high powered LED lights. That means that these are actually offering a higher lumen rating
than the factory bulbs. Not only are they going to be brighter than the factory bulbs,
they’re actually going to offer a larger radius surrounding the doors. So when you step in
and out of your F150, the lights will shine a lot brighter on the side of the doors giving
you better visibility stepping in and out. Speaking of a perfect fit, these Recon LED
replacement bulbs are going to be a direct fit replacement for your factory halogen bulbs.
That means they’re going to be a plug and play making installation very simple. If you
do a little bit of research online, you’ll realize people had to do a lot of modifications
to get LEDs to work in their housing. They had to do a little bit of gluing and splicing
and so on and so forth. A lot of risky modifications and a lot of time-consuming stuff that Recon
makes it a hell of a lot easier. Like I said, Recon made it extremely easy to make it a
plug and play kit to replace the factory housing. No matter what color you choose, it’ll be
a direct fit replacement to keep the OEM fit that we all want from an aftermarket part. As well as keeping the OEM fit, the company
also kept the OEM finish, making them out of the same materials that the OEM housing
is made of. That way you can be sure they’re a durable quality as well as keeping the quality
lens so that you can expect them to last over time without having to worry about them melting. You might be thinking that since they’re an
LED replacement to the halogen that they’re going to run pretty expensive. That’s not
the case here. Recon made these ultra high power LED replacements to be just falling
around the $80 mark, so it’s a pretty inexpensive way to get some added customization to your
F150. I know I’ve mentioned this a few times, but
the install is going to be super easy. It’s very straightforward stuff. The only tool
you’re going to need is a flat head screwdriver, and it’s just a matter of using your hands.
To start the installation off, you’ll have to remove your factory housings. This is just
a matter of taking the flat head screwdriver and sticking the head of the flat head screwdriver
into the space provided and just popping them out of the housing. They’ll hang down by two
wires and you’ll have to disconnect those. They might be on pretty tight, so you just
want to pull them straight back and pop them off. Once you get those plugs off the factory
housings, it’s just a matter of putting the factory ones aside and plugging those two
wires into the same spot on the Recon ultra high-power LED replacements. Once you get
those on, just pop them back into the mirror housing, and you’re ready to move on to the
other side. Obviously, it’s an extremely simple install
for anybody to do. With 30 minutes to an hour, you can get this done with just a simple screwdriver.
It’s a no-brainer that I’d give this a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Just to quickly wrap things up guys, if you’re
the ’09 to ’14 F150 owner out there that’s looking for better visibility for the sides
of your truck or you’re just looking for a unique accent to the side, these Recon ultra
high performance LED puddle lamps for your side mirrors in any color will be a great
addition to your truck. You can get yours right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
