Rear Lights - Rigid Tail Light Mount & Light

I am looking into adding the Rigid Rear Tail Light bracket (Rigid Rear Tail Light Mount) and Rigid SR-M (Rigid SR-M Light) light to my JKU. Would you go with the flood or diffused light?

Anybody have these and if so how do you like them? How did you wire them (sPod, reverse light, etc.)?

For the rear you want the diffused.

Thanks.

I've got some VisionX LED pods (VisionX Solstice Fog Light) from another vehicle. I thought about saving money on the lights right now and just mounting these on the Rigid rear tail light brackets. It looks lke they would fit. Any thought on doing this?

Curious about those brackets too, I have lights, trying to see if I can find out the inside dimensions on the mount for the light.

I just installed the diffused light. I didn't use the mounting bracket. Instead I mounted it on the bottom of the passenger tail light

Hi,
I installed the SR-M diffused using the Rigid bracket last Christmas. It's a nice looking package overall but the lights are just not that bright, especially for the cost.

I spliced them into the backup wire in the housing but I now have an S-Pod, so I may go back at some point and wire them into both.

Installation is not that bad, depending on how you decide to wire them. The bracket and light do interfere with raising and lowering the soft top to some extent. You can tilt them forward a little and then tilt them back if need be.

I think the best approach for rear lighting is integrated with the rear bumper. Ace Engineering just came up with a design having a cutout for a much brighter 6-led light in the bumper. That would also be much easier to wire to the S-Pod. I will likely get that at some point to use together with the Rigids. Sayward Offroad also has some nice, bright lights at a low cost that would be a good option.

I wonder if you could mount these brackets on the bottom (just reverse them) and use the SR-M floods. I would think this would give plenty of light.

Thoughts / comments?

Not without moving the license plate on the drivers side. Having said that you would need to pull a taillight and make sure you have room in the housing. On the top there is like an inch between the housing and where the taillight begins you don't actually drill into that just through the top of the housing. If you pull a taillight you will see what I mean. I think the light is plenty bright but that is subjective to the user I suppose

Yes, 3 holes for the bracket and one for the light. I put some black silicone around the wire and haven't had any issues. I used the diffused SR-Qs and think the size fits nicely over the tail lights. They're very bright, but I wish they threw more light off to the side.
