New drinking game. Every time he says "alright guys" take a shot. Try not to get liver damage..
We are going to have to add the "shot tally" at the bottom of any future videos to make it a thing!

Wife has 2018 JL Wrangler Rubicon & I have JT Gladiator
Pruitts,

Thanks for the share!

A few things to mention:

While these lights might look identical, they are quite different. It is very common practice for companies, like this one above, to steal existing molds and designs in the industry and mass produce them with poor quality components that do not function or hold up to use over time.

This taillight above, as mentioned, does not have the additional harness for the blind spot monitor, even though their photos show our version that does incorporate that feature.

We included the optional "light-hacker" wiring for the sequential turn signal, a big safety feature that they have not figured out, as the top comments show, "will not work with American jeeps."

Ours don't have issues with the start up animation (they must not have figured that part out either) and we are shipping today, no two week wait time.

We understand more than anyone that these very affordable products look the same to someone that doesn't know the difference, but that is not the case in reality.

With that said, we would never wish anything bad upon any product that you choose to go with, and in fact wish you luck with the new set they will HOPEFULLY deliver in the next couple weeks, as we agree that we have succeeded in making a very cool taillight!
I have to say I agree with the above statement. I bought a cheap set and had issues all around, I can't call out just one. There is no doubt that you get what you pay for. Plenty of people will always try and fabricate a cheap version so never go with cheap because, in the end, you will pay more.

These are GREAT but I'm selling the Wrangler and buying a Gladiator, when will you have something similar for the Gladiator ?

Goes without saying, that you get what you pay for. Way to keep it classy Quake LED. I like how you handled it.

I agree, they handled that answer well. I think it was 3 years or so ago at the SEMA show in Vegas that some of the guys from Rugged Ridge were walking around and noticed at least one company from China offering exact duplicates of their patented products. A few calls later and the US Marshals showed up, confiscated the parts, laptops, cell phones and arrested the people at the booth(s).

Two years ago a buddy of mine bought a $26K off road tear drop trailer. Since it was the 1st one they sold, they used his rig for their marketing and photos of his Jeep and the trailer were in their brochures and website. Not long after someone told me to check out how cheap trailers were on Alibaba (Chinese web site featuring hundreds, perhaps thousands of Chinese companies and their products). Low a behold was a company selling a clone of his trailer for $5K if you bought 5 plus shipping. They used the exact same photos of my friends Jeep and trailer for their ad on Alibaba.

I also know a vendor that shows at many of the Jeep Invasions and shows nationwide. He sells a truckload of his product each show and actually sells out. He says that Chinese companies clone his product and put it on Amazon for half the price. As fast as he has Amazon remove the listing, they start up another one with a different company name. He says the theft is never ending and it's almost a full time job to slow it down with Amazon.

This is rampant in the industry and is fueled by the cheapskates out there that buy the inferior stuff then bitch about it after they've been taken. I try to buy from reputable companies and all of the parts on my rig come from brand name folks, not the Amazon and Ebay knock offs. Buy from an American company and protect American jobs.

Steelponycowboy,

You're in luck! We actually have a set of taillights very similar to these for the gladiator. They have a metal housing, super bright reverse light, and a bunch of cool features including the sequential turn signal "light hacker" wiring and a bottle opener on the side.

I checked out your link to the Gladiator tail lights. While nice, they just don't have the cool factor the JL ones have. I never did care that much for the round LED lights people put on the back of their CJs and Wranglers. I'd really like to see something more like what you have for the JL for the JT. I appreciate your response but I'm just not a buyer for the current JT style LED lights you offer.

Mike,

We were going for something different and new. Have had a good response and sold quite a few sets but understand its not for everyone. We will be launching other Gladiator taillights soon. Just stay tuned. Quake Releases new products often.
