Well the red ones are just 4 inch led trailer lights can pick up from any semi trailer service place, i ordered mine at work cuz i work on semi trailers, the white are the reverse lights and just 2 inch LED i got them at superbrightleds.com im sure you could prolly get the 4inch red ones there, didnt cost very much think all together maybe spent like $50 on lights and $20 on new flasher relay to suppose the led flashers

anything else you wanna know?

How does the wiring work? Is it plug and play or do you need to do something else? Im a newbie at this.

lights are simple... 3 wires for stop and turn lights and 2 wires for rev lights,
stop lights have 2 hot wires and a ground, and rev lights have 1 hot and 1 ground, with the stock lights the ground is right threw where the light connects to the tub so i just got some self tappers and screwed it in some where. i cut the plugs off my stock lights btw nd spliced them in for the new ones

And you got a flasher relay? That goes in the relay box?

I would like to see this if you get the chance. I need a light for my plate and haven't decided which route to go.

Hahaha. I dis the same thing when I installed my snorkel on my last jeep. Holding a 3" or so holesaw against the side of my jeep for ten minutes until I got the stones to do it. Scary.

Thanks. I am more interested in seeing how you wired them. I have little motorcycle plate lights but not sure how to wire them. I have a rack in my jeep which puts the license plate out a bit.

4 inch lights require 4 1/2 hole saw and the 2 inch lights called for a 2 3/16 hole saw but i used 2 1/8 cuz i didnt have the other but it worked good. i can get those pics here in a few bout to head out to the garage once i get my coffee in me

I think ill order my tail lights soon. I found some for 8 bucks each, then ill get 2 reverse lights for 15 bucks that ill put in my rear bumper. I might also get another light for my 3rd brake light in the middle of my spare. Shouldnt be too expensive.

Ah i ripped that 3rd brake light off my jeep lol, that was the first thing to go when i bought it 3 years ago, here are the pics of the wiring and such kinda hard to see tho, but basicly I cut the plugs off the stock lights and wired them into that and made my own ground.

Here is the link for the plate light i used Pilot Automotive/White license plate LED light (CZ-224W) | LED Exterior Accessories | AutoZone.com

FYI i had to lower my stock plate bracket

Looks really good man! I like the reverse lights.

I did mine with the rear corner guards and It really cleans up the rear of the jeep. If anyone is thinking about doing this I say go for it. Its one of my fav mods I have done.
