Jeep Flush Mount Trail Taillights - In The FlushPosted in How To: Body Chassis on May 1, 2009
Sure, we'd all like to have fancy LED taillights on our Jeep. Oh, wait a minute; no we wouldn't.
Some here at Jp are pretty enamored with LEDs (cough, Trasborg, cough). While LEDs draw less current, are arguably a little brighter, and have that fancy factor going for them, they come with a higher price tag and a more complicated installation. Late-model Jeeps need to wire in a diode, solder in a doohickie, or worry about a flux capacitor-something-or-other.
Point is, if you're like most of us, you only care about getting rid of those bulbous and expensive-to-replace factory taillights that stick out 3 inches from the body tub. Here's a cheaper alternative to LEDs that won't get munched on the trail or put you in the poorhouse.
