        Does this have a brake light also or just a license plate light?

        • The JKS Spare Tire License Plate Mount Kit w/ Light is just a license plate light and mount. You can reuse your stock 3rd brake light or an aftermarket 3rd brake light.

        Can you run this with an aftermarket tire carrier? Say teraflex or smittybuilt? thanks!

        • This will work with most aftermarket carriers.

        I installed and tapped into the tail light, now I’m getting a fast blinking turn signal on that side. Do I need a resistor to slow it down?

        • We recommend tapping into the OEM license plate light circuit. An LED load equalizer may help with your situation, but we have not attempted this.

        Do we have to run the light supplied with the kit ?

        • The light is not required for installation of the bracket.

            Did what it’s supposed to and looks good

            Sturdy design and works well. I even used it as a place to mount my rear cam. Driving down rough Houston roads and the rear cam doesn’t move around. That being said, it’s pretty sturdy. Be mindful though when installing the light. The video on extreme terrain instructs you to wire the black wire to ground. The ground on mine was white and the black wire is the 12 volt. Thankfully, I always test lights before the install and found it ahead of time. All that being said, I am pleased.

            Nice product, great quality and easy install. The LED light is bright and lights up the plate well. Great kit if you are looking to relocate your plate.

            LED wires can be backwards

            The kit installs pretty well, and there would only be a few edits I'd make to the video to be clear. The one glaring omission is that the JKS LED light often comes with the wiring backwards. I had not read through all the comments to find this, but I am one of several in this comment field who have had this issue. I'd give this more stars if Extreme Terrain or JKS would own up to this possibility. I would have tested the leads on the wiring I ran before installing the quick disconnects and would have found out right away. That said, the rest of the kit is great. It looks good, installs pretty easily, the LED is quite bright, and I'm very happy with this purchase (now that the LED is working...).

            Custom fit for Barricade Bumper

            I needed a relocation kit to fit my Barricade Bumper with the spare tire carrier. The carrier covers the first 1 1/2 digits of my license plate. This kit did the job with some splicing. I ran the existing plate wire under my JK by pushing the wiring in, down and through the bottom. From there, I cut the wiring and spliced my new 16 guage wires in. Ran it across the back under side of the jeep to the other side out and up. I simply tied wrapped it to the tire carrier. Works and looks great other than a couple of tire wraps that show on the carrier. Other issue was that the led light wires were backwards. Took about 2 1/2 hours to figure that one out. Would have got more stars if it wasn't for that one.

            Service after the sale

            So my wife bought this online quite early for my birthday. I had an issue after the install with the light not working... I was out of warranty with ET. Good news is JKS handled my tech support call late on a Friday, they returned my call which I somehow didn't expect. Turns out there was an issue with the wires being switched by the LED light manufacturer causing it to not work when wired as instructed. They stayed online why I switched. Its All Good

            This is a well made product and easy to install the hardest part will be the wiring but the installation instructions will help a lot with that part.

            Aesthetically loses a star

            Very straight forward kit and installation in my opinion and for the most part it provided the look I wanted. I dropped one start for a couple reasons. Maybe it’s personal, but I think others would agree. When it’s time to put on the blank plate, black mind you, you have these normal [polished chrome] color round head screws. Personally I’d like black and countersunk for this. The only other reason is the instructions. If any state still allows 3rd brake light to be off I’m sure it’s not many states. Strongly recommend the instructions provided are changed to support the masses with keeping 3rd BL in operation instead of telling customers that they have to find a way to do it. Didn’t trip me up, just a thought.

            This license plate bracket works great on my Smittybilt Atlas bumper tire carrier. Very sturdy and super easy to install. The light is a little too bright but other than that, no complaints.

            Great Option

            This product was easy to install and works perfectly. The only reason it gets a 4 star instead of 5 is that the provided LED is plenty bright but very blue and not diffused very well so you have very uneven light distribution but the plate is very visible at night. Overall a great inexpensive option for relocating the tag and maintaining your spare.
