How does the serving of other gods recur in the rest of Judges?

Judges 3:6 (ESV)

6 And their daughters they took to themselves for wives, and their own daughters they gave to their sons, and they served their gods.

The idolatry mentioned here is often mentioned “in general terms in the preambles to the deliverer cycles, but Joash’s cult installation (Judges 6:25–32), Gideon’s ephod (Judges 8:27), and the affairs of Micah and the Danites (Judges 17:1–18:31) are presented as concrete examples."1
