NOTE: Lights in photo are NON-CREE and the RELAY shown has been replaced by a NOVITA branded one. I'll work on updating photos, but didn't want to delay this listing any longer.
Cree Turn-Signal Set. These lights are expensive! I'll likely go back to non-cree for the next restock. I've been running these in my XJ for around three years now and have had no problems with them. Please read the full description.
The most difficult part of the install is getting the flasher relay installed due to it being under the steering column.
The second most difficult part of the install can be getting the lamps back in their sockets - the rubber may be misshapen from two decades of stock-bulb heat.
Plastic may become more brittle when it is cold. If it's below freezing, consider waiting for a warmer day to install.

- Does not work in Jeeps with 7-pin trailer wiring!! There is an incompatibility between the brake and turn-signal lights.
This light set is recommended for someone that is determined to go Full-LED. It is largely a cosmetic improvement that gives brighter, more vivid amber light output. The biggest functional improvement is that power consumption of hazard lights is reduced to approximately 25% of stock. Theoretically, it should take 4x times as long as stock bulbs to exhaust a battery.
1. In our testing, this set is compatible with and without a 4-pin trailer harness installed and with or without trailer lamps plugged in.
2. This set is tested to work only as a set. It has tested to work with .
3. When using with 4-pin incandescent trailer lamps, the trailer lamps may appear very dim. We believe this is due to the LED lights in the Jeep being so bright by comparison. Unfortunately, we have limited access to test trailers - basically, just what the U-Haul guy let us hook up to. :-)
4. If any lamps seem nearly impossible to reinstall in their sockets, trim some of the misshapen rubber/plastic with household scissors. This stuff is likely melted out of shape after two decades of use. This should make sense if you face this problem.
5. The small front marker lights in the fenders will appear very dim during the day in comparison to the main front turn-signals. They are simply not very bright due to their size and power requirements.
6. Turn Indicator Lights in the gauge cluster may function differently after this install. Especially with LED turn indicator lights, the indicators will be on anytime marker lights are on and instead of flashing on and off to indicate a turn, they will flash between dim and bright. I honestly like this function because it's easy to tell when my lights are on during the day.
Pricing: $110 is what I need to charge for this set to be profitable and pay myself with these exact lights (retail, they are in the $15 - $20 per light range for the main turn lights) and relay costs me around $11 (I have to buy retail since my volume is so low). I can reduce the price by using cheaper lights, but it'll still be an $80 set. I refuse to knowingly sell mediocre quality parts, which is what would happen if moved to a lower price point.
