I like the ones you linked. The 18's are similar to the "c-clamp" design as far as the LED outlines.

Don't think I've seen many aftermarket tails that I've liked.
You're not kidding, they are nice, but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Ya, those seem to be the best I've found, other than the Raxioms, and those are big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ too.
I'm gonna wait and see what Mr. Summers comes up with, before I spend anything.

I think I linked in a few pages back (or just mentioned) that people have reported the Recons leaking.

Do you mean the KR tails by the OE lights? Yeah those are obscenely expensive.

Well that isn't good. Dagnabit!! I never thought a set of tails would be this hard to find. I don't understand some pf the things Ford does, that chrome strip, IMO, just looks tacky.

Yes,you did mention that, I forgot!

I got a brand new, in the unopened bag, OEM wheel locks today, free!

Bud, you're more than likely not going to find the info you want in this thread. Post a new thread in this area. https://www.f150forum.com/f118/

Okay, it was these. Another member here had them installed and they looked pretty good. You have to be careful as there is all kinds of variants. These are gloss black housing, white outline (red at night), smoked lenses. His actual pictures looked better than these photoshopped ones do.

Thanks Jon, looks like this one is the better looking one. With the smoked lens, it doesn't appear that the LEDs stick out like a sore thumb, and I do sorta like the red outline for the running lights.

Well well, we disagree! I like the black housing versus chrome but they will look great on your color. I like some others, but I gotta get past the c-clamp look.
