The led is for the brake and turn signal. White is definitely bright but would make the lights look pinkish. The luxury look would be pure, deep red. Keep in mind the 14'+ tails also have the cool LED halo, which is red. Might as well keep everything the same but nice and bright.

Gotcha. Red it is. I don't have my Jeep just yet. I ordered a 15 Overland but want to order the lights ahead of time before the vehicle gets here How many extensions did you order ?

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

The rep on the phone suggested the following:

1. 2 PIN 12 INCH BULB EXTENSION WIRE | 1 PAIR - Wires - GEN2 (current) - Parts - V3 Triton

2. 3 PIN 12 INCH BASE ADAPTER TO CONTROL BOX EXTENSION WIRE | 1 PAIR - Wires - GEN2 (current) - Parts - V3 Triton

Was told I could return a part if they don't fit... Doesn't matter if 30 days go by.

I don't have my Jeep either! Hopefully next month. Just want to get the parts ready to go and help time pass.

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

K. Thanks. So the rep you spoke to didn't know if we need the 2 or 3 pin?

He told me to get the parts linked above. 1 extends the bulb, 1 extends the control box. If I don't use one of them then I'll return the other. Since I don't have the truck, I can only go by what I've seen posted by other members. It looks like a tight fit so an extra 24 inches should help with space and mounting.

Got it. I'm sure it will all make sense once I have all the parts in hand and the vehicle apart.

PB617 - My VLEDs rear tail/signal kit comes in tomorrow and I was wondering how your install went. I have a 2011 WK2 as well and I took out the lamp today to peek around in preparation and there is not much room to work with for the control box.

The picture you showed of where you mounted it, is that looking down in the bumper with the assembly out of place? I'm wondering where I should mount the box.

I'm thinking if I can get my small fingers in there I can double-side tape it to the upper part of the bumper just under the lamp. If you did this install, where did you mount it?

Did you have any problems with the install, any tips? I order the extensions as well just in case I need them.

Thanks!

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

I was able to get my VLEDs Triton V3 installed in my taillights tonight. when I turn the car on and drove it I unfortunately got hyper flash on both left and right side.

After everything was put back together I started trying to think of what the cause might be.

I do recall seeing to orange fuses in the box. Are we supposed to use those?

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Update - I exchanged emails with the VLEDs folks and you do need to insert the Orange fuse to activate the resistor in the control box.

They sure do look great on my 2011 - super bright!

Re: 2014 Rear Stop/Turn LED Bulbs

Gonna start installing them now. Looks like there's a plug that's just hangs?
