Rugged Ridge introduces its new LED Brake Light Ring for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

Improved Positioning and Increased Output for Greater Visibility

Suwanee, Ga. (October 30, 2018) – Rugged Ridge®, a Truck Hero Inc. company and leading manufacturer of high-quality Jeep®, truck and off-road parts and accessories, today announced the release of its new LED Third Brake Light Ring for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL.

The LED Third Brake Light Ring provides improved positioning for greater visibility, especially on lifted Jeeps.

The LED Third Brake Light Ring provides improved positioning for greater visibility, especially on lifted Jeeps.

Rugged Ridge’s new LED Third Brake Light Ring for the Wrangler JL addresses a common issue that plagues lifted Jeeps. When a Jeep is lifted above factory ride height and a larger diameter wheel and tire is used on the rear of the vehicle, the third brake light is moved upward, out of the normal field of vision. It is often obstructed by the spare tire itself, making it virtually useless. Many times the third brake light is removed altogether, creating a potentially serious safety concern.

The LED Third Brake Light Ring mounts directly behind the spare tire on 2018 Wrangler JL models, positioning it at a lower height for optimum visibility. Equipped with 93 Bright Red DIP LED’s around its perimeter, light output from the LED Ring projects through the wheel’s openings, creating a brilliant, attention-grabbing display that is impossible to ignore.

Each LED Brake Light Ring is IP68 waterproof-rated for dependable performance in all weather conditions and is constructed from a rugged thermoplastic to save weight. The mounting plate is impervious to most chemicals and is pre-drilled, making it compatible with the JL lug patterns as well as factory rearview camera equipment.

Rugged Ridge’s LED Third Brake Light Ring is backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and is available online and through select Jeep® and off-road parts and accessories retailers nationwide with an MSRP of $77.76.
