Oracle Lighting Shipping New Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Wrangler JL & Gladiator JT Models

METAIRE, LA (06.10.2020) – Oracle Lighting has announced the new Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Jeep Wrangler JL (2018-2020) and Jeep Gladiator JT (2020) models is now shipping. The new system (Part5861-504) has an MSRP of $199.99.

“Our new Sidetrack LED Lighting System is a stylish and functional upgrade for Jeep Wrangler JL and Jeep Gladiator models,” said Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “This tactical-inspired body cladding is equipped with multi-function integrated LED lights that provide benefits to both driver and passengers.”

The light modules consist of a pair of injection-molded inserts that fit in the original body lines and contour the factory fender vent for a seamless look. Matte black panels provide an aggressive look that adds a rugged and tactical appearance to the Jeep. Installation requires no modification to the fender sheet metal, and the cladding simply applies with included VHB adhesive.

“The LED ‘Entry Light’ features high-output white LEDs which illuminate the area outside of the vehicle for the driver and passengers approaching the vehicle at night,” Hartenstein said. “This convenient feature allows the driver and passengers to identify puddles, potholes, and other hazards when entering and exiting the vehicle. The entry lights are connected to the vehicle’s dome light circuit so the entry lights will activate when the vehicle is unlocked, when the doors open, and can be manually turned on with the factory control knob.”

The LED “Turn Indicator” addresses a potential visibility issue with the US-spec Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator models which do not have a clear indicator on the side of the vehicle. This can be hazardous when changing lanes with a vehicle is positioned in the Jeep’s blind spot, and this blind spot is increased substantially on lifted vehicles. By adding a bright amber indicator in a clearly visible position, the Sidetrack provides a needed benefit for lifted Jeeps.

DS18 Adds to Jeep Lineup with J-SUB L+R Enclosures

MIAMI GARDENS, FL (02.05.2020) – DS18 is the originator of a great many original Jeep products seen around the world. The company has Jeepers from the USA, to Saudi Arabia, and even as far as China… Europe and South America too. DS18 has a deep passion for all things Jeep. DS18 listened to their fans who asked for an enclosure that could be out of the way and leave them storage space in their ride… but also retain a lot of cone area for that hard-hitting bass feeling.

To fill that need DS18 has released another option for those Jeepers… and that is the J-SUB L+R. These two enclosures fit on the sides of the Jeep in the rear cargo space and fit snug against the vehicle’s interior wall. These enclosures come with pre run speaker wires and RGB-LED terminals to make wiring easy. The J-SUB L+R do not come with any RGBs but the DS18 LRING 12 is a great option for a 12-inch subwoofer LED ring.

The J-SUB enclosures come in a hardened plastic polymer that can withstand the roughest of treatment and are water resistant with 1 cubic foot on internal air space. The is enclosure is also filled with sound deadening foam to enhance the bass resonance and acts as a sound deadener for even better sound. There are also DS18 inlays so users can have the logo shown for all to see. The J-SUB can also be purchased in singles left side or right side.

The technology provided by these enclosures, when paired together, increase the bass more than 3 fold as the bass waves from the sides of the Jeep meet in the middle for a more complete, punchy, and louder bass.

MSRP is $699.95.

Oracle Lighting Launches New Jeep Wrangler JL Cargo LED Light Module

METAIRE, LA (01.16.2020) – ORACLE Lighting has announced the launch of its new Jeep Wrangler JL Cargo LED Light Module (p/n 5858-023). Now available with an MSRP of $109.95, the new LED light modules are designed for 2018-2020 Jeep Wrangler JL models.

“A Jeep’s factory LED dome light does not provide illumination for the rear cargo area, making it difficult to see at night when accessing cargo,” explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “The new ORACLE Cargo LED Light Module easily adds bright LED light to the rear hatch area using an existing power source. The plug-and-play design allows you to simply replace the factory wiper motor cover with the new cover using the included parts and plug the adapter into your rear accessory socket. It’s that easy.”

The Cargo LED Light Module’s lights can easily be turned on and off with the flush switches located on the panel. The dual white LED Cargo light function provides ample illumination and the added feature of the emergency flasher makes any road-side issue safer with additional amber flashing lights.

A clear advantage of ORACLE’s unique design is that this was developed to completely replace the factory wiper cover. This molded part features LED lights that are seamlessly integrated into the module for a factory look rather than “stuck-on” LED lights like some aftermarket options.
