...One area that’s a good upgrade is your taillights. Not only can this improve the way your Jeep looks, but it’s a practical upgrade, and maybe even a safer one to boot.
There’s always room for improvement on a Jeep. Sure, you’ve already got the best 4x4 ever made, but there’s nothing wrong with updating certain aspects of the vehicle. Plus, customizing a Jeep is half the fun of owning one!
One area that’s a good upgrade is your taillights. Not only can this improve the way your Jeep looks, but it’s a practical upgrade, and maybe even a safer one to boot.
Leading the pack is Rugged Ridge with their LED Tail Lamps for the Jeep JK Wranglers, all the way from 20017 to 2017.
LED Tail Lamps are brighter than your stock or traditional bulb-light taillights. That makes them easier to see, whether it’s daytime, foggy, raining, or the deepest nightfall. They’ll provide when the weather conditions aren’t the best.
Studies have shown that LED lights are a few milliseconds faster at lighting up than a typical old fashioned filament bulb, so that can be a factor as well.
Now, the Rugged Ridge LED Tail Lamps are not only a great addition to your Jeep, they’re legal in 50 states (and maybe the U.S. territories as well - such as PR for example - so check your local laws).
Another great thing about the Rugged Ridge LED Tail Lamps is how easy it is to install them. Got a Philips head screwdriver? You’re good to go! Eric gives swapping in the new lights a 1-rating for being the easiest.
You only need to unscrew a few screws, clean a small spot off (rubbing alcohol is handy) so that the ballast resistor can be stuck to the inside body with its included sticky tape, and plug in the wiring harness. The harness with the new lights matches the factory harness, so you only need to plug it in. No cutting wires, no soldering, or electrical tape needed (unless you’re in Europe, - those Wranglers are slightly different, so you would have to modify the wiring a bit).
This is one of the best upgrades ever. It’s practical, simple to do, and you’re getting a Rugged Ridge LED Tail Lamp that will last 10 times longer than lamps with the old fashioned filament bulbs. It's a terrific addition to your ride.
By the way, Rugged Ridge also offers steel Euro guards for your LED Tail Lamps. These are especially useful protecting your investment if you trail a lot. (part 11226.11).
