Has anyone installed any sort of rear lights on the 4xe ? I’m looking to light up the back more when I put it in reverse, I barely can see out the camera now with it stock ..

I run the Oracle back up light kit, yes, it took a little extra time to get the drivers side light to fit into the steel bumper, but it seems it isn't an issue if you have the plastic bumper. Id say it adds a bit more light than my set of Rigid Ignite back up lights I had on my WK2. A good choice for stock bumpers. I wired it to the aux switch panel on my JL.

I'm not sure that's the case. There are lots of complaints about fitment (particularly with the steel rubicon bumpers) and moisture intrusion with them.
Thanks for the info.Maybe I will add a little of my own weather sealing but I am referring to the type of LED module they are using. I wouldn't think the strip style in the Amazon version is really going to produce much light. Looks like I could build that at home if my reflectors weren't red. As for the mounting issue it seems to be trivial for anyone mechanically inclined.

I have the Oracle lights and wiring harness (so I don't have to splice the wires myself) wrapped and under the tree, looking forward to installing them next week.
Well... not quite as easy as Rob from Quadratec makes it look, but once you have the proper tools to reach the 7mm screw in the bumper to remove it was very easy. Really enjoying the bright LED backup lights.

Here ya' go: And this lights is 4 years old - it was on my Ram while I had it. I didn't take a pic standing next to the truck with no lights on because it was just too dark.

Forgot to mention that due to the muffler being right behind the trailer hitch wire placement is much more difficult. Using the curt adapter is easy in the sense that there's no cutting or splicing but it's a pain to hide it. I wound up leaving it visible temporality... But sometimes when temporary works it becomes permanent... Also, i covered all the connections in dielectric grease to prevent corrosion.
