LED taillights?
« on: January 08, 2018, 08:39:02 AM »
I think it's time to upgrade my lighting. I know the DOT approved headlights provide better lighting but my question is about taillights. I've found some nice LED taillights but what about the guards that are installed now? I like the protection but how much will they block the new lights? Are the guards really necessary? Has anyone sustained trail damage to unprotected taillights?

add armor at the same time. if you put some corners on your options for tail lights shoots thru the roof. Mine are very bright.

The setup that's there has a "cage" around them. Not sure if it's factory or aftermarket. That may work with the new ones. Most of the new LED sets have the dimensions listed in the ad. Guess I could measure the factory lights and compare the sizes.

Wait, did you mean corner armor? That's a good idea.

This is true about the wait lol, JCR makes great stuff but they definitely like to take their time, there’s a few good choices for 1/4 armor, if you don’t like any then you could probably check with Zach at SOB motorsports, he’s getting into custom fab for jeeps and I’m sure he’d love to come up with some body armor, he’s getting some designs ready for my Jeep now

But back to LED tail lights, mine are so much brighter than my factory lights, and I like the design more as well
