Re: WK2 rear fog lamp Install w/Pictures

Anything for an actual rear high-vis fog lamp kit? I'd like them to function as, I don't know, rear fog lamps lol!

Get the mopar kit. Which, then also needs to Export switch to be operable as an individual feed vs the front, else your okay with the front and rear fog being operated at the same time. Check out the other mopar thread, the instructions for installation seem like a headache. lol

What brand of LED/specs did you use for the stoplights so it created enough resistance?

I used two different pairs. The first were some cheepos off of eBay and the current pair is from vleds. Both pairs provided a sufficient amount of resistance to prevent the fast flash effect.

Re: WK2 rear fog lamp Install w/Pictures

Just installed this on my WK2 and I think it's one of the best upgrades to the car so far. It makes the useless reflectors actually useful now. It took me about 30 minutes with the longest time removing the taillights since they were stuck on pretty good. You have to wiggle them out a little bit since the front of the taillight is held in by 2 ball joint looking things that slide into rubber holders. Once the taillights were removed everything else was easy. It came with some black zip ties but I didn't use'em.

Thanks Taillight Solutions for a great product and thanks J13ntv for the installation write up!

Re: WK2 rear fog lamp Install w/Pictures

If the 2013 GC comes out with the LED taillights and they turn out to be plug and play with the 2011-2012 GC's do you think they'll play nice with this kit? What I like about this kit is that everything is plug and play.

A friend of mine had an audi q7 and when the LED taillights come out he was able to do a direct swap since they were plug and play. I'm hoping it'll be the same for the Jeep.

I guess my biggest worry is that the connectors will change, resistors will need to be added, or a fuse/relay will need to be changed. Unless the resisters are something that's typically integrated into the taillight housing.
