I am in for sure. Definitely a weakness on our JLs... Added extra lights on my previous YJ & TJ. Left the JK alone but it also would have needed a brighter alternative
Thanks, I laid on my back for about 30 minutes pondering different routes to the retaining screws, but in the end it was worth it to me, as I just didn’t want to deal with bumper removal.Braver than I am. Well done.
The problem is with the OEM Steel bumper. The drivers side opening is a little smaller due to a manufacturing defect. The lights probably fit into the plastic bumpers (drivers side) because the plastic will give while the steel won’t. I used a Dremel (tungsten carbide bit #9903) to shave off a little over 1/16 of an inch off of the left side of the drivers side opening and the light popped into place just like the passenger. Even with “some assembly required” it is an elegant solution for fixing the piss poor lighting provided by the factory, and IMO worth the extra effort.It sounds like the lights (both drivers side and passenger side) fit perfectly in the steel bumper that has the plastic bumper cover over it. Would I be wrong?
I have a MOAB and am thinking about getting a set of these. From what I have read the are a perfect fit as is. Maybe it is just some of the steel bumpers that have issues? Just guessing at this point based on the posts.

@ORACLElights, what is being done to resolve the folks that have stock steel bumpers drivers side clearance issues?Happy Monday! Just a few updates for you all. Below, please find our updated installation video. We've taken your comments into consideration and have slowed the video as well as provided more details about the process of optional bumper removal and wiring information that should help those installing themselves.
Regarding the confusion we have seen with the wire colors from a few customers, we have confirmed that these customers are attempting to tap into the factory harness rather than the taillights themselves. Both LED and halogen have the wire colors listed (orange and purple) as seen below so please be sure you are tapping into the taillight wires - not the factory harness.
Feel free to give us a call at 1-800-407-5776 if you have additional questions during your install. Thanks and loving the photos of your Jeeps!
I have the same question, they reached out to me Jan 11 and wanted to make it right which I gave them kudos for but never heard back from them at all.
Oracle loaded a new video on their website for people with a steel bumper. They actually expect you to dremel the metal housing away to make it fit........hmmmmmmI have the same question, they reached out to me Jan 11 and wanted to make it right which I gave them kudos for but never heard back from them at all.
Frustrating for sure. But, technically, you have 2 options...dremel the light to make it fit or return it for a full refund. How bad do you want it? It's not like they are manufacturing these themselves. I am guessing they ordered a bunch of these and it is not easy to address this issue internally. But they are offering to make everyone whole. What else do you expect?Orlace
