Customizing vehicles has long been a hallmark of off-roading. From shocks to tires to bumpers, we love to modify what we have to give it a new spin. Similarly, Body Armor 4×4 is now taking something all car owners have, and innovating it exclusively for Jeep owners. It’s their new LED 3rd brake light, available for all models of Wrangler, from YJ to the current JL.
We spoke with Body Armor 4×4’s Pablo Bedoya to find out more about this product and how it was created. “We found there was a high demand for an alternative to the OE light for multiple reasons,” he said. “These reasons included safety, style, and compatibility with larger tires and certain aftermarket bumpers. So our 3rd brake light addresses all of those, on top of being affordable and do-it-yourself.”
The 3rd brake light is versatile and adaptable. It works with most wheel sizes 16 inches and larger, and fits popular bolt patterns including 5×4.5, 5×5, and 5×5.5. “We made sure this light has a 5×5.5 pattern for Jeep owners doing very popular axle swaps,” commented Bedoya. “We also took into consideration the OE JL camera, making this the ultimate solution for all Jeep owners.”
What’s more, no matter which Jeep generation you’re working with, the 3rd brake light is easy to install thanks to Body Armor 4×4’s T-Tap connection. “A key design element with this light is the simple T-Tap that allows customers to simply connect into the factory wiring without cutting,” said Bedoya. “This allows the owner to keep his factory 3rd brake light if he chooses. It also makes it easy to remove the light if he sells his Jeep, and then put it on his next Jeep.”
Body Armor 4×4 is interested in getting more off-roaders equipped as well. “We are absolutely looking into a number of different markets,” said Bedoya. “Subarus, vans, and eight-lug options for one-ton-swapped Jeeps are all on the table.”
