I've had my "new and improved" Lite Dots installed for about 10 months. The LEDs are fine so far, but there is a nice bubble in the middle of the black face of them. Almost looks like the sun or heat got to them. Should have went with the Savvy lights the first time.

I had to dig back to see when I got my Savvy tail lights and near as I can tell, it was in February of 2011. They've been on the rig since that time and in that time, they've been submerged in both water and nasty mud/muck/crap and run without issue. Faced weather of all kinds, and while I forget if I rolled the rig with these in place, it has definitely been on it's side without question with them installed. I can't count how many trees I've backed the corners down into with the tight timber trails up here. I don't have any submerged or under the muck pics but was told they put out a cool glow at night under the crap and made the muck look "cool".

I guess my point to all this is I use my rig for what it was intended. Do I abuse it? I try not to but I certainly don't baby it either. It does what is asked of it and I expect it to perform in all conditions I put it through, yet still maintain daily driver duty as well. The Savvy LED lights have been excellent since install back on day 1 when I received them. Despite what they've been through, they are still bright as hell and function without issue. I still get asked about them from time to time-not as much as I did at first, but most of the local guys here already know about them now. JK guys are asking now or commenting the most on them. Regardless, while they are a fair bit of coin for initial purchase, it is money very well spent on about the best bolt-on TJ LED light out there. If you're looking at a quality set of aftermarket tail lights, the function of, and the features built in to these lights and housings is WELL worth the price of admission. I've been very happy with mine, and especially so here over a year and 8 months later. If you're on the fence about these, just jump, you'll be glad you did.

Best of Luck,

Mike

I just installed these today along with the full LJ corners. I have a couple of questions. What did you do about your license plate bracket? The picture on the website looks like they have some sort of drop bracket. Also if any of you have the light bolts for the license plate, where did you splice them into?

I'm running Savvy's corners and tail lights and used Lightning Boltz lights for the license plate that are spliced into the tail light lead.

Did you just run the red to the lead then put the black to ground on a bolt or something? What about the license plate? I made it work, but it looks a little sloppy. Would rather not drill anymore holes.

I used the original synthetic stock plate holder and some red 3M body molding tape. I always get up against something and it will hold it. Has held it for three years now.

Let's here some more long term reviews? Any burn LEDs? Just plain not working, or are they all just trucking along perfectly?

Had my Savvy LED tail lights for over 3 years now. No burned out LEDs. No problems.

So far of the thousands the LEDs we have sold I have less than a handful of defects.

Most comes from water intrusion. Over tightening of the screws cracks the lens housing. Then the LEDs start to go one at a time. I've had one complete failure due to the wire been over stressed.

So pretty darn reliable.

Currently have a huge back log of them and are suppose to get them back in stock the beginning of April.

I have one of the first sets introduced as "trials" even before the lights were available for sale, and mine are perfect.
This is a great product as is everything Savvy brings to market.
I am very particular about the brands I support, and the products I run on my Jeep. There is no question that I 100% support Savvy and endorse their products.

I believe we have the water issue solved. We've been gluing up the holes for the external light wiring that the factory left open and we've not had any failures since.

Just a little bit longer. The LED manufacture changed the mold slightly so we have to make a small machining change.

I also got mine before they were available retail. I have had no issues with mine.

And for the guy that asked about the plate, yes Savvy has a drop bracket. It doesn't require any drilling. I couldn't find it on their site, but I know it exists because i have one on my Jeep.

I did manage to kil my first piece of Savvy gear. It was the license plate drop bracket, which aparently was not made to hold the weight of the Jeep. The stock plastic tag holder is shredded too...
