Re: LED Tailgate Bar

IMO I think it would look horrible. Don't put those kind of thnigs on your Jeep. There's no point of spending money on more lighting for the rear. Instead I would just buy HID's. They only look good on Pick-up trucks.

HID's up front are definitely on my list of things to get done especially before a tailgate led strip, if i did decide to do it. i didnt wanna buy one of these strips without even seeing what it looks like on the jeeps first. i dont wanna be the first guy that finds out it looks terrible.

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

I have thought about this...and also the LED hitch covers that light up when you brake...anyone have pics of those? Like this:






Or the step?

Re: LED Tailgate Bar

Only reason I thought of the step led was my tinted tails...always worried someone would say I couldn't see me brake. Kinda why I want led tails...if I tint LEDs and regulars the same, are the LEDs brighter? I am assuming yes...
