Cool Had A Crazy Idea For WJ Tail Lights

So how sick would this be...I want to get these LED tailights to replace my current Smoked LED tails:



So, I got the idea to put V-LED switchback bulb's in the spots where the Reverse/Rear Turn Signal bulbs go & wire them up so that I would have quad Reverse lights and dual Amber turn signals. Confused? Check out the GIF I made at the bottom so you can get what im talking about.
So what do y'all think? Shouldn't be too crazy of a mod I would get mine tinted of course...

Re: Had A Crazy Idea For WJ Tail Lights

sounds cool, look forward to your results.
(I don't know how these lights reflectors are setup, but usually reverse have a reflector meant to spread light more on the ground for visibility backing up at night)

Re: Had A Crazy Idea For WJ Tail Lights

Sounds unique...and it should be a lot more noticeable than a stock set up. This could be QuadMod part deux....

Re: Had A Crazy Idea For WJ Tail Lights

That's how mine are currently set up your going to have to do some crazy wiring though lol I'm trying to think how you could but I get lost in thought lol I love how mine currently look and just ordered led bulbs for them. Btw it doesn't use the same bulb as the originals in case you didn't know.

Re: Had A Crazy Idea For WJ Tail Lights

That would be pretty cool, I'd hate to go through the wiring nightmare though. If you do get it done, don't forget pics of the install .

Liarr, haha. Yours are tinted but you dont have the switchbacks :P I think it would be kinda easy to wire...Just a matter of getting new sockets. & I know.. they use the 1157 bulbs I think, but VLEDS makes those in switchback's too
