Interesting, check out these aftermarket '14/'15 LED tail lights!

So I was browsing eBay and stumbled upon these aftermarket LED tail lights. At first I clicked the link thinking they are probably just oem tail lights, but upon closer inspection sure enough, a company has finally made a OEM replacement tail light that has LED signal and brake lights!!! Click the link and look closer, it actually has internal LED chips. This is how our Jeeps should have come from the factory!!!!
Even though I am running the V3 Tritons, these sure look like they could be nice, and without all the extra parts required for kits like the Tritons. I couldn't find any additional pics or videos. Unfortunately, all I could find so far is the standard Laredo/Limited/Overland/Summit lamps and not the darker red SRT/Altitude/High Altitude lamps.
What do you guys think?

I wonder how bright these are compared to the V3s. I wish all the bulbs were led from the factory. I'm sure that will be the case eventually.

I like the darkened reverse sections. Not too sure about the extra LEDs on the inner portions, what function would they have?

Probably wouldn't look bad with SRT bezels either... Hmm! 🤔

Another Eagle Eye product. Guess I will have to add these to the list also of stuff for the jeep! Hopefully someone on here will take the leap of faith first and post some pictures

I think you're misunderstanding it, those inner LEDs are the brake and signals! That's what's cool about these is they are basically identical to OEM, but have fully integrated LED brake and signal bulbs where as our stock lamps use a regular bulb. Like I said this is how our Grand Cherokees should have come from the factory!

Are the inner portions wired from the factory for brake/blinker functionality? Last I saw when I had my tails out there were only two harnesses connected... one for reverse and one for the LED halo (parking light). If you look at the picture in that eBay listing you'll see the inner housing plug has two contacts, not three.

I'm guessing the inner portions on this LED set will only activate with the parking lights, but the outers will still have the blinker/brake, same as stock.

Either way I'm going to seriously consider a set of these.

Yeah you know I'm not 100% sure how these function yet because I noticed that too. So from the factory the 2014+ uses the LED outer ring as the running lights, and the brake and turn signals are from the outer lamp only. These aftermarket lights show what appear to be LEDs in the outer and inner (liftgate) housings. Unless the inner ones are dummies and there just to keep the look consistent and that's what I am thinking is going on. So the plugs on the liftgate housings would be one for reverse bulb, and the other for the LED running light.

Awesome Find!!!!

Very exciting.

I hope they have integrated resistors to avoid hyper-flash.

Im dealing with that right now on my Wrangler and its not a huge deal but it doesnt go unnoticed either.

I have resistor harnesses for my JW Speaker headlights....resistors get WAY too hot too touch and I STILL get a flicker. GRRRRRRR!!!!

I also wish filament bulbs and fixtures would fade away into (mostly fond) memories of the 20th century. I do sooooo much off roading that the incandescent filament cannot hold up to the vibration and I replace 2-3 sets a year.

These come with a harness that attaches to the third brake light. There are also built resisters to prevent any dash warnings/hyper flash.

Only concerns are how bright the running lamps are in the daytime compared to stock, and longevity.

Interesting...
Sent message to the seller to see if he can get similar lights for the 2011-2013 model years.

So has anyone ordered a set of these for their 14-15 WK2's?
