there once was a guy on RPS who made one or two of them. Marcos had one and eventually sold it to another guy on RPS. it looked sick and the guy even had a carbon fiber surround for it

cosisms is pretty much one of a kind. maybe 2 other people have that one. a guy over at rps was making them then he "started" making 3 pod a pillars at like $60 a pop got the order and split...so needless to say you cant get that one... oh yea that one was just as much as the recon one.

I have Marcos' (Cosism's) LED brake light that MPipes made over @ RPS. That guy turned out to be a real flake. And that's being nice.

Here's an OK pic of the light on my truck. I't not the best, but you can see how well it lights up:



P.S. My name is not Mark, LOL. That's just who took the picture.
