I love this - how does the LED light install electrically?

Artec - I have purchased this product from you and await delivery. I assume the bracket kit comes with the LED light depicted above, does the wiring harness attached to the bolt light have a quick disconnect clip since I assume it must be removed to take the spare tire off the vehicle.

Great questions as I would like to buy if this is the set up - please let me know!

I received my license plate relocation kit today, but it does NOT include the LED bolt light that they show on the description page. I'd swear that it said it was included, but I must be mistaken because now the product page says OPTIONAL BOLT STYLE SIDE LED LIGHT AND HARNESS COMING SOON BUT IS NOT INCLUDED"

So, no install until I can figure out the license plate light situation. Nothing like being all charged up to do a project and then having to cool your heals......

The Jeep is in the shop tonight. They are going to make it taller and give it new shoes and socks tomorrow. (i.e. Lift Kit and 37 in BFG KO2's and Rockstar Wheels). When I get it home, I will take a few pics and post.

I was waiting until the lift to post my review of it, for a reason. Admittedly, my driveway may not be 100% flat, but I don't think my license plate it is 100% level with the Jeep. I have used a level to check the bumper of the Jeep. the driveway, and the mount itself. after the lift, I am going to park in a lot that is level and check again.

My second beef with it, is that the bullet style LED light that their posting here on the forum says is included, wasn't. I had to call and ask for it, to get it. When I installed it, I would say it is about as bright as a single birthday candle in the darkness. I'm fairly certain that my plate can't be seen other than directly in front of it, within a few feet and I'm not happy with the light solution.

My grade so far:

Quality of Product (metal and powder coating) - A+
Ease of Install - A+
Ease of installing the LED Light - C (absolutely no instructions or guidance)
Usefulness of the Product - B (unless it turns out level and my Jeep is tilted, then A)
Price of Product - B

Well that sucks. They should have included a bright LED light for a relocation license plate mount....especially since it's the law in every state to have a light showing the plate clearly in the dark.

My guess is that this is a new product and they haven't quite worked out the details on what light will work best. I intend to source my own solution and replace the dim LED, if I remember correctly it is 36 lumens

Thanks, I received the light after calling about it. The guy who answered the phone was very helpful and arranged to send the light promptly. My concern is, this light is not terribly bright and barely illuminates the plate. The last thing I want is to be pulled over because the police can't see that my plate is illuminated. I think you guys need to come up with a plan B.

Can you guys post a picture of what it looks like mounted on your jeep? I bought an aftermarket bumper / tire carrier and realized I have no where to put my plate. Thanks!
