Installing LED tail lights.
 
These were a gift so I am installing them.

Firstly, as I removed the OEM tail light and housing and disconnected the harness, I discovered that I have four wires and not three. I googled the wiring diagram and saw quite a few threads in the Jeep Forum but their wires were different colors than mine.

I need to know if anyone has a diagram with these colors:
black, black/yellow, green/red, and purple/black.

Secondly, is it necessary to buy an equalizer? I know I have to buy a more powerful blinker switch, but can they still function without the equalizer?

Didnt they come with installation directions? If not google the maker, maybe can download a pdf.

Yes you will need to buy an led flasher. There only like 7 bux and can be had at any auto store.

As far as the lights go I'm surprised there not plug and play

I know how to install them and what wires serve what function on the lights. I just need to know if anyone has the same color wires that I have.

I think I have the same wires as you do mine is a 95

I just did mine and didt need a led flasher! I had 4 wires to I just sat there with a test light to figure out what did what! You only going to use two of them unless you are hooking up back up lights at the same time!

Out of curiosity... what company did those come from?

Never mind my last post I thought you were doing the flush mount led!

They are Rugged Ridge. I shall take another gander today.

Some of those lights have a built in resistor, so they use the same amount of power as a regular bulb. That way you don't have to change the flasher relay.

I have a set of those exact same lights. No, you do not need an equalizer it is built into the lights themselves. You will need to get an electronic flasher fuse or your turn signals will not work properly, and I did the same thing most of these other guys did. A test light and a person going through the motions.

So I accidentally had a couple wires touch and I don't know what fuse to change. Would you happen to know? I can't find a sensible fuse box diagram or wire diagram ANYWHERE online. Not in google or jeepforum.

Can you assist me, sir?

I guess nothing was actually wrong. Now I'm going to buy the flashers and be in perfectly working order. I love the modern look.
