Direct Replacement Jeep LED Tail Lights

Has anybody on the forum tried these yet:

Jeep LED Conversion Lights

I'm wondering if these are "too good to be true?" If they work as advertised, they sure make this conversion easy.

I watched the video and they seems to be plug and play. The $150 for tail lights seems a little high to me but they also look very easy to install, so maybe your paying for ease of use. Also your supposed to use a LED relay for LED's or else they'll blink super fast. I'm curious to see if these come with the relays or if they need to be purchased separately.

Edit: I went back and read it again, they don't need the flasher relays.

Eh, I don't know, honestly I don't think it looks different enough for $150. Plus if it breaks, it's not all that easy of a fix. Instead, why not just do the LED swap or if you don't want to cut anything, the ORO LED lights.

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I love the way my LED lights look plus I only paid $24 total for them.

Too good to be true???? At $150....definitely too good to be true......FOR THEM.

At $5 a light bulb you would never use that many regular lights in the life of 10 jeeps......and IF you happen to catch one of these on a branch or other something that breaks it.....another $150.........or at least $75........

I picked up an entire LED jeep tailight assemble for like 80 bucks each (160 a pair) from my local Pepboys.The housing shape,bolt holes,everything were identical to the stock lights.Just bolt them on.They look far brighter than the ones in the video,and are complete light assemblies.....

You can buy the LED assemblies on ebay for 70 for a pair. You'll need to replace or modify the flasher module. Jeep Wrangler LED TAIL LIGHTS RED LENS TJ CJ YJ MJ - eBay (item 220715261834 end time Jan-04-11 08:11:06 PST)

It says on the website that you don't have to change the flasher

Edit: just realized you probably meant if you buy the ones you were describeing you would need to mod the flasher my bad lol

those are nice if you want a stock look, but if I'm going to change out my tail lights, I'm going to go round or oval marker/break and reverse... Just my 2cents

Thanks for the input. I think $150 is about the same as the Rugged Ridge LED tail lights that are styled the same as the classic Jeep tail lights. I can see why y'all with serious off-road builds find the flush mounted tail lights advantageous, but I don't really have a need for that myself. And since I actually prefer the classic look to the round LED setups, I was hoping to get some hits from anybody that has something along those lines.

I did email the person selling these on eBay and asked how he managed to get around the "flasher" issue, and thus make the claim that they are able to just be swapped out. He replied that each unit has a built in resistor that works on MOST vehicles. Hmmm, "resistor" means unnecessary heat in my book, right?

Take a look at the ones that Savvy sells they are aluminum and led and only stick out like an inch. It's the closest to flush mount you will get and keep the original shape.

I have them on my TJ. They work great, easy to install. Just as the video says, take off the old lens, take out the bulbs, plug in the new and replace the lens. I did have an issue with the flasher when my headlights were on. Called the company and they sent me a replacement flasher in a couple of days. They were great to work with. Love the lights, they are super bright. I have a 98 TJ, by the way. When you look at their vid on the website, my jeep is the red one with the diamondplate on the rear. Maybe could have gone cheaper, but I am extremely happy with mine, thought the price was fair.

Awesome! Thanks URascal, that's what I was hoping to hear... that they work as advertised and that the seller backs up what he says. Trigger pulled.

And thanks DevilDog for pointing out those Savvy tail lights... I hadn't seen those before, they're slick... maybe someday...

Update (in case anybody else is interested in these):

http://www.jeepledlights.com/

I received and installed these yesterday. Looks like I'm going to need the flasher too. I've got a 2005 and the LED Tail Lights install quick and easy, look great and work well... until I have the tail lights on (which I always drive with my lights on), my foot on the brakes, and signal for a turn. At that point, the stock flasher acts erratically, alternating between fast and normal flashing.

An email to the seller today and the replacement flasher is said to be on it's way to me at no additional cost. Overall, I'm sure I'm going to be very pleased with these once the correct flasher is installed.
