Oracle Lighting Features Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Jeep Wrangler JK During 2021 SEMA Expo

See Oracle Lighting in booth #C20547

METAIRIE, LA (11.02.2021) – Oracle Lighting will feature its recently patented Sidetrack LED Lighting System for 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK (p/n 5873-504) during the 2021 SEMA Show, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from Nov. 2-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth #C20547. Now shipping, the Sidetrack LED Lighting System has an MSRP of $199.95 and is also available for JL/JT (p/n 5861-504).

“ORACLE Lighting’s Sidetrack LED Lighting System is a stylish and functional upgrade for Jeep Wrangler JK 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 for a seamless look with an option to create a functional fender vent. 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…the cladding simply applies with included VHB adhesive.

The LED “Entry Light” features high-output white LEDs which is a side-light intended to illuminate the area outside of the vehicle for the driver and passengers approaching the vehicle at night. 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 safety issue with the U.S.-spec Jeep Wrangler JK models which do not have a clear indicator on the side of the vehicle. This can be inconvenient when changing lanes with a vehicle is positioned in the Jeep’s blind spot…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 visibility benefit for lifted Jeeps.

Now shipping, these new reverse lights have an MSRP of $149.95 and are also available for Jeep Wrangler JL.

Unsatisfied with the visibility of your Jeep Gladiator reverse lighting when backing up at night? Then replace the factory bumper reflectors with high-output replacement auxiliary LED reverse lights from Oracle Lighting. This reverse light design seamlessly integrates into the bumper reflector area to provide more than 1,500 additional lumens when backing up in a Jeep Gladiator.

“We noticed a consensus of Gladiator owners who had the same problem…complaints of low visibility when backing up at night,” said Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development. “Many tried to supplement with auxiliary lights and light bars which just did not fit, had limited ground clearance, and just looked out-of-place.

Additional features and specifications include:
• Connects to existing reverse light power source without error code
• Integrated rear reflector for OE appearance and function
• Total of 30 high-powered LEDs with 3,000 raw Lumen output
• Aluminum housing with black powder coat finish
• Optic-focused beam pattern for an extended field of view

Oracle Lighting Continues Youth Engagement Outreach Despite Hurricane Ida Evacuations

METAIRIE, LA (09.21.2021) – Oracle Lighting continues its youth engagement outreach despite Hurricane Ida evacuations.

Anthony Hostetler, an Oracle Lighting industrial designer, was one of many who were evacuated from Louisiana during the recent hurricane. Hostetler took the opportunity to visit his hometown high school of Westview Jr-Sr High School in Topeka, Ind. to speak with an Advanced Drawing class about the automotive design industry.

“Many students have a limited idea of the options they have when entering a creative field, and I welcomed the chance to show them a different avenue of thinking and a unique way to use their artistic talents,” explained Hostetler. “These students were receptive to learning more about how automotive design blends creativity and technical skill.”

Hostetler’s presentation included a day-to-day look at his position with Oracle Lighting and his journey to finding the industry. He also demonstrated standard design processes and technology, including the company’s new 3D scanning system. Before concluding with a question-and-answer session, Hostetler showed students some of the latest projects from Oracle Lighting including custom Deluge D12 hypercar exterior lighting and flush-mount tail lights for the Jeep Gladiator.

“Early exposure to this field is important for those considering a future career in our quickly adapting industry, and these opportunities for youth outreach allow us to foster curiosity in new generations,” continued Hostetler. “Investing time into these students is the first step to helping them to cultivate a mindset of ingenuity and develop their skill set that could later benefit the automotive design industry.”

In August 2021, Hostetler also hosted two local high school students at Oracle Lighting’s Louisiana headquarters for a similar exploratory workshop. These students also had the chance to job-shadow the industrial designer at work.

“We welcome the opportunity to expand our youth engagement programs, and this chance during hurricane evacuations was an unexpected benefit,” noted Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting founder and director of product development. “At Oracle Lighting, we recognize the importance of supporting future innovators and sparking their interest in the automotive market. Planting that seed in young minds is the key to continuing to push our industry forward into the future.”

Oracle Lighting was recently ranked as the third fastest growing company in the entire metro New Orleans area according to New Orleans CityBusiness magazine.

Oracle Lighting has safely re-opened post-hurricane and has resumed normal operations.
