Oh good, you put up the How To so I don't have to. That way Chris won't be mad at me.

Re: Customer Requests???

SO you don't have a plug-n-play kit for the aftermarket LED tails is what I understand??

Re: Customer Requests???

The brake, turn and running lamp portion can be made plug and play on 07-09s.

Reverse light isn't.
I opted just to wire in a different plug on the factory harness for the reverse lamps (2 pin weatherpack).

Re: Customer Requests???

Yeah, DC's got the right idea. There are two plugs on '07+ model jeeps. The taillight one (3-pin) I can get connectors, so that part can be plug-n-play. I cannot find the reverse light connector tho so that part cannot be plug-n-play. In order to make things easier on you guys, what I've done for a few others is just send them a T-tap to put on the reverse light wire. Then I've already put the mating connector on the taillights. So, once they install the T-taps, the taillights are kinda plug-n-play. And the stock ones still plug in no problem. AND, this design is more compatible with my rear fog harnesses as it doesn't have any custom plugs.

Make sense?

I gotta make an adapter harness for one of our Canadian brothers. I'll take pics of it so you can see what I mean. It's the exact same concept as me modding your taillights, but his has the matching '06 connector on it so that he doesn't have to send me his taillights. This saves him time and money on shipping because he is in Canada. This option is more expensive tho because I have to buy two more '06 plugs (and they are more expensive than the '07+ connectors).

Re: Customer Requests???

Well how much for this set up that you are speaking of for my 07 with the rear fog harness shipped to 96797 (HI)?? And can the rear fog harness be for brake and run lamp only (so no blinker basically)??

Thanks,
Chris

Chris:

So you want me to make the adapter harness for LED tails and include a rear fog harness? Or are you gonna send me your LED taillights and have me mod them? I ship thru USPS and shipping is the same to Hawaii. It would probably save you some money to ship me the taillights as the '06 connectors that are necessary to make an adapter harness cost me about $45.

If you haven't bought the tails already, a lot of people have them shipped directly to me. I mod them and them send them to you. That way they aren't paying for shipping twice.

As far as the blinker delete goes, it seems simple, but it's actually harder than you think. The blinker and brake light operate off of the same wire so it'd be difficult to filter out the turn signal, although it can be done with a converter box ($30). The only other way I know to do what you are asking about is to grab the brake signal off of the 3rd brake light, since it doesn't blink. However, that would pretty much ensure that the harness wouldn't be plug-n-play.

How big of a deal is it to not have the blinker? I prefer to have all 3 functions, I think it just looks better. But your call. Let me know and we'll figure it out, then I'll be able to quote you a price. Thanks for your interest, dawg!

Re: Customer Requests???

Well for all that extra work I would say not to worry about the split. I didn't actually fully think about the wiring setup in the 07s til you mentioned it. As far as tails go, I already have them here AND already have them tinted, lol. What would your normal t-harness with led fogs go for? I think I can manage the connecotr part..maybe.

Re: Customer Requests???

Jason's LED tail light mod isn't far of from being plug n play. I ordered LEDs for my 08 and didn't want to do a lot of wiring mods. One of the main reasons is because I suck at wiring. So I had them shipped to Jason and he set them all up for me. When I got them back if it took me more than 10 min to install them I'd be surprised. Jason also sent me a new harness for my fogs so I could run LEDs in them also. All I had to do was remove the old tails plug all the connectors together. The only part that is not plug n play is the reverse lights. No worries all you do tap the power side of existing reverse wire that takes a whole 30 sec to do. Then just reinstall your tails plug your fogs in and your set.



This how they look, nice and clean wiring.




A fast tap onto the power side of the reverse harness.



Plug everything in, reinstall tails, plug fogs in and your done. In less than 10min you have installed LEDs tails and fogs on 07+ GC.



And they work and look great. Thanks Jason.

I should probably start a new thread.

Re: Customer Requests???

Damn, that looks great.

Jason is super clean about wiring.......gotta give him props on wrapping/covering all wiring so that it's protected.
And that is super easy to install too!!

Sweet

Re: Customer Requests???

Hey Jason... I've got an idea... Can you create a less costly version of a lockpick? I'd like to be able to have full access to my RER nav system while on the road, for my wife, of course.

BTW, Jason's wiring harnesses for the rear fogs are a work of art. Very, very clean. Nicely done. Once I get my lights back from Daniel, I'll post up pics.
