Re: Aftermarket LED tail lights - please show interest

Well, time to try again.

Sent message to Spyder, Anzo, and Depo Auto Lamp.

Maybe we will eventually get something? I'm not big on the LED 'bulbs' for the stop/tail lights. I had that on my Subaru and while effective, I would have rather had dedicated LED tail/brake lights.

Re: Aftermarket LED tail lights - please show interest

I'm surprised Jeep doesn't fit them OEM, maybe the '15 will have something that can retro.

The Cherokee is all-LED...why they did that, and not the WK2, I have no idea.

It would also be nice if the Cherokee's *reflector* fog lamps would retro into a WK2...

Unfortunately at the moment we do not offer headlights or tail lights for
your vehicle. We do offer accessories such as chrome covers and side step
bars. I would advise you to check back periodically for any new updates for
your vehicle.

Re: Aftermarket LED tail lights - please show interest

Yep...
I got an email from Joe Ramirez also basically saying the same thing.

I'm hoping if they keep getting messages from interested GC owners, they might consider making a set.

Since Chrysler made the running lights LED on the 14's, they should have also made the turn/brake lights LED's. It was another cost cutting move. They should have just left them all incandescent and save even more money. People like you would never notice the difference.

In the sunlight I can barely tell the brake lights are on on a 14 grand cherokee. I jave never had that issue on say an audi thag has led lights on brake turn amd tail lights. For me it os a visibility and safety thing.

LED brake lights light up quicker.
It may be microseconds, but that could mean the difference between the idiot behind you stopping in time or giving your rear-end some customization.

And you don't have to worry about the damn things burning out. My wife's RAV4 is now over 5 years old and all of the LEDs in the OEM tail lights still function just fine.

At this point the best option appears to be the V-LEDs V3 Triton system which replaces the bulb.

Their newest system has a load resistor built in to prevent the 'fast flash' issue.

I've replaced my rear main bulbs with 3157 Krypton bulbs which seem to be a little brighter than a normal 3157... For now.

V3 Triton system for both the rear mains and the front blinkers are on my 'wish list'.
