While led lights are not replaceable " cost effectively" you do not have to have the whole top piece to be replaced. The LED housing can be removed from the tire carrier itself leaving just the LED housing assembly. There is a wire harness , disconnect and bring it to the dealer. It still wont be cheap, Take the tire off the carrier and you will see some black screws , It will come apart and you will see what I am trying to explain.
I do all off my own maintenance and repairs, I would not pay that. I rather order a nice LED light from AutoZone or other Auto Center and do a nice install for a quarter of the price. My Warranty you say??? UUMMM<, I will never let the Stealer-ship touch my Jeep unless it really needs to, and I decide wich tech I know personally , to work on my Jeep....period...
When you have time, check your carrier , as far as taking out that LED housing unit.
