    Anyone know where to get some clearance lights for a 3rd gen Ram that are not a POS. All the aftermarket ones I've tried are flat and end up cracking over time.

    They're all pieces of shit really. Some clear silicone around the inner rim before you install the lens helps with vibration and sealing, but most will crack or leak at some point. I've installed some Recon brand stuff on past trucks and they seem to be ok. The least shitty of the aftermarket I guess.

    I've had the Recon ones for about 10 years now. They've started getting flaky over the last year or two, but I haven't made time to pull them and find out why. I suspect that the hack wiring job I did on them is the problem. For the ~$100 I spent on them at the time, I'd do it again. They included a gasket at the base, but I added silicone in the screw holes as well.

    I don't think i siliconed them last time which may be half the problem of one leaking. I'll look into the Recon's.

    Silicone can take the paint off

    It's a Dodge, just looking at it takes the paint off.

    Could be worse. It could be a white Chevy.

    Another vote for Recon. Had them, have them. No regrats.
