LEDs and Light Configuration

LEDs are considered the best in aftermarket lighting for several reasons. The first being the crisp outline LEDs provide. Standard halogens have a larger gradient whereas LEDs have a sharp cut off. LEDs are also easier to see, making you all the more visible on the trails and on the street. The second perk of LEDs is they don’t draw as much power as halogens. Although, you’ll sometimes need an aftermarket relay to ensure the turn signals don’t blink faster than they’re supposed to. Aside from light type, there’s also the light’s setup to consider. By that we mean how the reverse and brake lights are positioned. Most of the manufacturers will provide photos of how the light looks, so you can choose the best tail light for your Jeep.

Smoked Lens and Tail Light Guards

Another way to adjust the aesthetics of your Jeep with your tail lights is getting smoked housings. These, of course, dim the output of your lights, so we only recommend them with LEDs. However, smoked lenses go well with darker colored Wranglers since they don’t clash with the rest of the accents. Taking your new lights on the trail might sound like a risky endeavor, but you can protect them with tail light guards. Made from steel tubing, tail light guards wrap around the housing to protect from thicker branches and debris. Light guards are usually powder coated for additional endurance.
