    Yeah, about that! I've converted all my vehicle lighting to RECON lighting, lol! I've replaced the actual housing for my headlights, tail lights, and 3rd cab light. I've also replaced the stock bulbs in my interior dome lights and fog lamps with RECON's L.E.D. kit and Xenon bulbs. Cheers!

    Recon doesn't seem to make headlights and parking lights for 06's and earlier. :(

    I'm debating between the PlasmaGlow Firestorm tailgate bar and the one made by Recon. I don't think the Recon scans, does it?

    Yeah, the recon one does scan. I recently bought a 60" plasmaglow fire and ice bar for my truck, I don't like the look of it at night. I will be willing to sell you mine if you want it. I had to hardwire mine so I had to cut off the 4 prong adapter for it off.

    I can't seem to find any youtube videos of Recon tailgate bars scanning red for turn signals; I'm only seeing amber signal scans on the Recon bars. Do you know if they scan red for turn signals?

    Also, I appreciate the offer on the Fire & Ice but I'm pretty set on scanning turn signals.

    RECON's Xtreme Scanning Tailgate Light Bar is brand new for 2010 and functions as a Red LED Brake Light, Red LED Running Light, White LED Reverse Light, & Amber LED "Scanning" Turn Signal & Hazard lights. The scanning function starts in the middle of the bar and scans towards the outer edge of each side of the bar when applied. Get Lit w RECON Today!!!
    I got this directly from their website. Not sure if this is what you wanted @ surrealone.

    I was able to find taillights for a 99-07 GMC/Chevy truck: http://www.gorecon.com/product.php?...-Lights-Chevy-Silvo-GMC-Sierra-99-07&p_cat=44

    but RECON sadly does not have the lighting housing for 2006 or older trucks. However, I would highly recommend Anzo projector headlights as a great alternative: http://www.anzousa.com/Default.aspx

    Cheers, and good luck on the lighting upgrades! Let us know what ya finally get set up!

    i dont think there is a company that makes a scanning red light, the "line of fire" blinks for turn signals but doesnt scan.

    Plasmaglow Firestorm can be purchased to scan either red or amber to suit one's taste.
