Gentlemen, got the connectors in so I am finally able to start a thread. Here it is.

So, most of you already know this, but I'll explain it anyways for those who don't. The LED tails for these WK Jeeps look BADASS for sure. However, there's a slight problem for the '07 and neweer guys. You see, when they started making the LED tails, they put the taillight connector on the tails that Jeep was using at the time. Unfortunately, Jeep decided to change from the single 8-pin taillight connector to the two separate 2- and 3-pin connectors in '07. The LED taillight manufacturers never did follow suit.

So, what this means is that you '05 and '06 guys have the wonderful luxury of being able to pop the LED tails on without any modifications. However, us '07 and newer guys have to do some fancy wiring to get them to work. So why not let me do the modification for you? I will put the correct plugs on your tails to make it a 100% plug-n-play endeavor.

This requires you send me your LED tails. This is a cheaper option than me making an adapter because it requires less parts.

If you are dead set on the adapter, here's the link to the information thread: http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=8206



Some FAQ's:
  • YES, you can buy the tails off of eBay or wherever and have them shipped directly to me.
  • YES, I can send them to Daniel or whoever after I am done to have them tinted.
  • YES, this setup is 100% compatible with my rear fog harnesses. I even offer a package (see pricing below)
I generally wire the top two panels together so that the entire light brightens with the brake lights and turn signals. However, I can wire it however you want.


Here's some pictures. Here's what I receive before modding:



Here's that single '05/'06 8-pin plug:



And here's after the mods:



With the two separate '07+ plugs installed:



Pricing

I can do this mod for $85 shipped back to you. Of course, it's your responsibility to get the tails to me. I will mod them and ship them back to you. I can usually do the mods within 1-2 days of receiving them.


If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to PM me or email me at [email protected]. Remember, custom wiring is what I do so any weird requests are welcome. Thanks guys!

Mike, your tails were the ones pictured and are now ready to go. I will ship them out tomorrow. Go ahead and paypal me payment and I'll get them out.

Ron, your tails are done as well. Any idea when I should be expecting your rear fog/3rd brake lenses? I'm ready to get them shipped to Daniel/whoever.

Thanks guys!

So does this mean that you can make the export tail lights work on the 07+ WKs?
no. to make them work you need to have jason build a little box that seperates the blink and the brake signal, on the 07+, one wire handles both chores, one the export, or the 05/6, you need a seperate blink wire.




regarding the leds, if you have on 05/06, you are PnP however the blink lights up the bottom half of the light and the brake does the top half. when you make leds work on the 07 and up, the whole face of the light 'lites up' for blink or brake.

they did and i got a PM......but not a ban yet.....
Just like we said - all they care about over there is money. When you buy a vendorship, apparently you also buy protection and immunity. No one is allowed to ever bad mouth you or your products after that. And the rules of the forum are so convoluted that the mods can bend and manipulate them to backup any decision they want to make. Then they inevitably give you the obligatory "I don't make the rules, I just enforce them" disclaimer statement.

What a bunch of crap.

For everyone's information, people over at the red site started saying "Just PM this Taillight Solutions guy" and so on and so forth, basically hyping up numbnutz and touting him as their savior. So rob steps in and posts:

WORD! Now there are people over at the red site already defending him! What a crock of shit! People actually believe he is the inventor/pioneer. And I can't post anything that would prove otherwise or they'll ban me and delete the post. BS!!!

I plan on adding a little blurb to my sig....

Hehe
Mike, your tails are officially on the way.

I think everyone should put something in their sig like "LIPS Rear Fog Harness (The ORIGINAL!)". Now that's just narcissistic on my part. It drives me nuts that this douche nozzle commericialized MY idea!

Sweet think they will be here by the weekend? :D

Hopefully my 1156 LED bulbs will be here in time too.

As for the sig, I was planning on saying just that "The Original" Lips rear fog harness.
