Angry Rear LED brake/turn signals

Hello all. New 2015 JGC Overland owner here. Is there any specific reason Jeep decided to cheap out on not including rear LED brake and turn signals? I mean the fronts are LED, mirrors are LED. I believe both the Durango and even the Cherokee have rear LED brake and turn signals. Why not us GC owners?

This will most likely be addressed either in the refresh or the next generation. Meanwhile VLEDs makes a kit that works on the WK2.

Re: Rear LED brake/turn signals

^^^What he said. VLED V3 Tritons are hands down the best plug and play LED brake/turn/signal setup you can buy. I have used them in multiple vehicles and have had several kits now, but I am waiting for my new V3's to arrive anyday now for my new Summit (for the rear brake/turn bulbs. I will definitely make a post about that when they are in so watch for that.

Looking forward to that. When you get a chance can you post exactly which set you purchased? I would really like a set for my Overland. Thanks.

Re: Rear LED brake/turn signals

Just to give you guys a sneak peak of just how good the V3's are, here are a few pics of them in my wifes 2014 Toyota Highlander. These pictures compares stock output to the V3 Triton against a wall.

Photo showing brakes applied! Drivers side is the V3 Triton, passenger side stock bulb. Need I say more?


Even though we wont need any rear amber signals for our WK2's, here is another picture showing the hzard lights on. So this picture is comparing both turn signals. Same as above, V3 drivers side, stock passenger side. Crazy!


Here is the red LED kit:

Yeah I will post all that information. Just let me receive the kit and install it before I go bragging to everyone about it. I already know the bulb itself will fit as I tried one in the Jeep from my other car, but im waiting for the new kit to arrive with the correct bulb adapter for our Jeep application. Again, when everything is installed I will for sure post a thread with all the info and pictures. Im excited to get these and install them as the Jeep will be fully LED equipped on the exterior then!
