How did you fit those lights behind that plate? Aren't they much deeper?

I love it, but then I'd have to put my spare in my only trunk space. Which may not be bad with a bikini and no carpets setup...

Yes the lights are deeper than the allowed space. I cut the center out of the air outlet vents in the tailgate to allow room for the lights. I tucked the wiring inside the trim panels along the side and up to the aux wiring under the dash (aux4).

Here is what I did a week ago. Wired into the left tail light. The white wire with the brown stripe is the reverse light circuit. I like how the lights go right along the guidelines on the screen. I used the flush mount rigid LEDs that you guys were talking about putting in the reflectors.

You can also install these bad boys in the spare 😎😜

what i'm inclined to do, is stick a single laser spot right in the center, above the spare tire mount, with the light carefully aimed directly at the retinas of tailgating drivers. what i need, is the lidar that is used in adaptive cruise controls, so when you get in range, the closer you get, the brighter it gets. i want something that will zap you at high noon on a sunny day. i need a tailgater repellent.

my work car is a CTS-V, and that has a throttle pedal that renders tailgaters null and void. the jeep however, won't pull strongly to 185, and so i need a death star light....

Bodam said: "How do you tie into the existing LED reverse lights? I can't find any wiring anywhere."

Bob, I tied into the driver side LED just above the clip with "t"-wire connectors. The Orange wire is the "hot" wire for the reverse light aspect of the LED.

The wiring in the left tail light. It’s been over a year since I did it. It’s either an orange wire with a white stripe or a white wire with an orange stripe. I tapped into that one and mine only come on with the reverse lights.
