Not properly.
If you need the light, and I fully understand the need, I'd mount an auxiliary light like a Rigid Dually in back.

Has anyone successfully installed a relay and had the hyper-flash problem resolved?

I've just installed LED taillight drop in bulbs on the Wrangler JK. They're supposed to be CANbus compliant by having heat sinks built in but not sure where the error in voltage is within the parking lights/ turn signals.



Link to the bulbs in question:
https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...ed-tower/1263/

My theories : A. replace the front 2 signal/marker lights w LEDs (Cbus style,) making all pklights on the system LED and with properly installed resistors. Potentially regulating and flattening out the varying voltage between the harness?
Or, theory B., add an in line resistor to the taillights and further reduce the current in the parking light harness? I'm so close to figuring this out but stuck and I don't want a hyper-flashing signals...
I can deal with it bc they're so much brighter and sharper looking when switching intensities.

Not true. I have led back up bulbs that work fine and are brighter than stock.

I did resistors on mine. Worked fine for a while, fixed the flash, but I'm having issues right now. Left one is acting up.

Any update on the issues with these tail lights? Are they plug & play now? Do they still hyper flash? Its been a few years .So I would hope they have fixed this
