Yeah the reason I say no to the el12 one is I have led all the way around and it wouldn't make them blink after I did the front ones I did have that one and it worked well with just the rear ones

all aftermarket lights may not have the same wire colors coming off of them, so you'll need to figure those out first. It's very simple using your battery, as LEDs will only come on with correct polarity and they wont blow if you accidentally hook them up backwards. I've come to find that a lot of times (not all the time) they'll use white as the ground wire, so start there... as far as factory wire colors.. here you go: (wires are diff colors on each side of the factory plug)

Taillights-
Driver Side:

Turn/brake +12v - Green/red stripe
Bulb side of plug- green/black stripe

Running light +12v - blk/yellow stripe
Bulb side of plug- white

Reverse +12v - purp/black stripe
Bulb side of plug- white/black stripe

Ground -12v - black
Bulb side of plug- no wire

Passenger side-

Turn/brake +12v - Brown/red stripe
Bulb side of plug- green/black stripe

Running light +12v - blk/yellow stripe
Bulb side of plug- tan

Reverse +12v - purp/black stripe
Bulb side of plug- white/black stripe

No ground on the pass side. You can easily ground it inside the tub behind the light hole..

Thanks for the help guys. Def thanks for the color chart. I got it last week. Just needed to swap out that flasher.

This is what I used for rear side markers on my led conversion. 3/4 led. Bright as anything.
Here's a link to them. I got all my lights from this site. Great pricing.

This is how i did mine. The tail lights have tail lights, brake, turn and reverse. The outer circle of the lights are my red ones (tail, brake and turn), the all of the inner led's are my reverse. The little side light is my side marker so I'm legal. All those LED lights are extremely bright!

Where did you get those rear lights from?

I found them on ebay about a year ago. They were something like $120.00. A little pricey, but they work great and they have all the lights you need! Installation is pretty much just like the other LED lights, except they have the reverse lights too.

Thx. I'm in the middle of doing the 4.0 head swap onto my 4.2. Then I'm gonna paint my jeep after the swap is done. FYI, those tail lights work awesome.

love your set up, nice rig too

If your lights are on solid there are two ways to correct this. Purchase a LED Flasher or install resistors. Most LED kits come with a resistor pack. It is a white block with a wire on either end, to be installed on the live (power) wire. LEDs are designed to have low resistance. Standard flasher fuses are designed to detect low resistance and provide feedback (solid operation) as an indication of a blown bulb.
