Eagle Eye Taillights Install


Eagle eye installation instructions are in blurry black and white.
Swapping the light housings out and plugging them in is straightforward and simple.
The wire harness taps into the 3rd brake light and mimics it to the hatch lights.
Tap into the third brake light here. Harness red wire to the white with purple stripe (hot wire) and harness black wire to plug black wire. They send wire taps, but I prefer these posi-taps instead. I like to hide my wiring or integrate it into the OEM harness.



These are the 4 nuts to release the hatch taillight.

The wire for the right side is a foot too short so I extended it a foot.

I cut the plug off the harness and spliced in the extended wires.


I ran it this route. Now you're ready to plug in your lights.

They come with resistor boxes to plug into the body taillights. Plug those in, peel off the 3m tape and mount the boxes. I already have an LED set up with resistors, so I didn't need to use them. They'll probably need to be mounted behind the bumper cover. I don't think they'll fit behind the lights.
One of my hatch lights doesn't fit flush with the body and I'll need to investigate more (I put a small washer behind it so you can see the gap). The first problem was the bolt hole for two of the the studs were not true and I had to file them out. It did allow the taillight to seat more, but it's still not perfect like it should be.
I have no clue how the factory light stud fit through these holes.


They with come grey colored plastic. I couldn't take it, so I painted them black.

Re: Eagle Eye Taillights Install

Damnit... why didn't I see these before! I put a set of these same brand tail lights on my 2006 Jeep Commander back in 2011 and they still work great.

Question, did yours come with black rings around the reverse lights? All the product pics I see show chrome like the standard GC models.

The lights that go all the way across are the eagle eye and the single tail blinking and no inner hatch light is the oem taillights with a taillight solutions led kit.

Re: Eagle Eye Taillights Install

I bought the taillights off of Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
and they came with lightly tinted reverse lenses, you can get them clear also. They also sell them with silver or black bezels. Lucky enough that the black trim is removable with one screw and fit the stock taillights. So if you don't find black trim ones, don't worry.
The RFLUK is like $347

Re: Eagle Eye Taillights Install

The directions are printed with pics in black and white. It's very easy to install, even for a novice.

Re: Eagle Eye Taillights Install

Some folks get a little reluctant splicing wires in their $50,000 vehicle and want to make sure it's done correctly so the outcome is excellent like yours. What's easy for one can make another hesitant,buying them is the easy part 😎
