Press Release: METAIRE, LA– Oracle Lighting (www.oraclelights.com) will feature its new Sidetrack™ LED Lighting System for 2007-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK (p/n 5873-504) during the SEMA360 online event Nov. 2-6, 2020. With an MSRP of $199.95, Oracle Lighting is currently taking pre-orders with plans to ship Dec. 12, 2020.
“ORACLE Lighting’s new 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.
