Oracle Lighting Ships Sidetrack 12V LED Lighting System
Oracle Lighting, LED lighting solutions provider for the automotive aftermarket, is shipping the Sidetrack LED Lighting System for Jeep Wrangler JL (2018-2020) and Jeep Gladiator JT (2020) models (Part # 5861-504; MSRP: $199.99).
The tactical-inspired body cladding is equipped with multi-function integrated LED lights, explained Justin Hartenstein, Oracle Lighting director of development, in the announcement statement.
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 add a rugged and tactical appearance to the Jeep. Installation requires no modification to the fender sheet metal, and the cladding 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 U.S.-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.
