I added the Recon smoked LED 3rd brake light to mine with no issues. Actully also added Recon smoked tails as well (had to wait several months for them to develop and make available the tails to go with the factory LED) with no problems to date.

i simply changed my 3rd break light bulbs (two cargo and one break light) with forward facing LED bulbs (9 LED per bulb)

i wanted the license plate tag lights, and the cargo lights to be the same LED Blueish hue as the entry lights under the mirrors.

they add premium headlights and taillights but put 0.3cent bulbs in the 3rd break light.. makes no sence

now all the bulbs match and give it a MUCCH better look.

so before you go out and spend a buncha dough on a replacement 3rd break light, check your local hardware store (i used kijiji.com) and found a guy selling LED bulbs, simple plug and play setup, instant results with no "lamp out" codes or anything. but thats obviously your call.

the recon 3rd breaks are nice tho.. no question there, once the weather picks up i will be using a product to black the lenses out to give it the smoked appearance.

I went crazy and cut open the OEM 3rd brake and put the lens on an aftermarket one.

LED bulbs could have worked but like I said... I went crazy.

I decided to stick to the OEM light housing, Went to the dealer and they ordered me the newer designed housing with thicker gasket under warranty.
