Race Sport Lighting Released NEW Jeep Wrangler Lighting Stage Kits at SEMA

RINGWOOD, IL (11.11.22) – Race Sport Lighting released their NEW Stage Bundle Kits for the Jeep Wrangler JK at their SEMA Booth last week in Las Vegas. Their Stage 1 Road Runner Kit features 5 major external lights in a kit that takes 2-4 hours to install in the bay.  The Stage 2 Trail Runner Kit includes 8 popular LED Jeep lights that install in about 6-8 hours. And lastly, the Stage 3 Zombie King Kit packages a whopping 11 interior and exterior Jeep lights that shops can bill out 8-12 hours of labor to install. These are the perfect solutions for resellers who upfit Jeeps or who are looking to keep it simple and offer lighting packages.

JJKS1K (p/n# 1007635) is the Stage 1 Kit

JJKS2K (p/n# 1007645) is the Stage 2 Kit

JJKS3K (p/n# 1007655) is the Stage 3 Kit

This is a dealer driven product and Race Sport Lighting has already been getting amazing feedback. Dealers who upfit Jeeps communicated, whether it’s a lift kit, an exhaust kit, or alike, that it’s easy for their sales counter guys to sell a 1-2-3 option to the customer instead of putting together a lighting system piece by piece. The sales counter person will simply show the 3 options, give them the 3 prices for package + labor, and the customer will make a choice.

“We have already started selling these kits to Jeep up-fitters nationwide and they love it because their lives just got a whole lot easier, and they actually sell more lights as a result. Essentially, the resellers drove this product to the marketplace to make the checkout experience much easier. It also makes it easier to quote labor and make sure their shops make a lot of profit selling a Jeep Lighting Stage kit. says Steven Jergensen, President of Race Sport Lighting.

The Race Sport Lighting Jeep Stage Kits are in stock and shipping now out of their warehouse. The current packages are for the JK model, but they will be releasing the Wrangler JL Stage packages by the end of the year just in time for 2023 kick off. A Jeep Gladiator and Ford Bronco Kit package is also in the works for a 2023 release.

USPTO Office Awards Race Sport Lighting’s GEN4 LED System Second Patent

RINGWOOD, IL (07.21.2021) – Race Sport Lighting has announced that the USPTO office has issued a second continuation patent (Patent No. 11,054,127) on their innovative GEN4 LED design. The GEN4 was first launched at the SEMA Show in November of 2019 and was instantly embraced by the marketplace just a month after applying for the first patent. That patent (Patent No. 10,801,714) was issued in October of 2020.

The GEN4 patented lighting system features a 360° ratchet-style adjustable base for aiming, an anti-glare optical beam deflector and a rotatable heat-sink rope for heat dissipation in tight lens/cover locations. Retailers and installers were supporting the product at a rapid pace until the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States in March of 2020. At that time, the contract factory making GEN4 exclusively for Race Sport took a huge hit from the pandemic and had to close its doors. We have been working hard over the last year to move the tooling over to their main factory and make some small adjustments to the design before relaunching. Those adjustments were captured in a continuation patent application that has evolved into the recent patent issued by the USPTO.

Steve Jergensen, Race Sport Lighting President, is pictured at the company’s Ringwood IL HQ holding US patents for the innovative GEN4 LED design.

“We are very anxious to relaunch the GEN4 LED system to the marketplace with a few upgraded adjustments that will increase the performances even more. It was disappointing that we had to switch the tooling to another factory in the middle of the pandemic, but we are still receiving a high demand weekly for this patented high-performance system to relaunch into the marketplace. We are doing everything possible to keep our relaunch target around SEMA Show 2021, just in time to kick off the new year with some major excitement. We are thankful to the USPTO for awarding us a second patent and recognizing a lot of hard work put into this kit.” – Steve Jergensen, President of Race Sport Lighting

Orders are building up as distributors and dealers nationwide have requested to keep orders open in anticipation for the relaunch. Currently, our Drive Series V2 all-in-one solution system is leading the way in the premium LED headlight kit space of the industry.
