Another Liberty Toad question

A newbie asks:

Couldn't find this covered in the 'other' Liberty posts, and HATE to order a light kit that I can't use in the 2004 Liberty we want to TOAD:

Are the tail lights in the Liberty large enough to install a tailight kit?

Are there two types of light kits, one with the standard 1159(?) bulb and another with smaller bulbs?

Is the third brake light (the middle one) used in the kits, in most MHs we have followed it does NOT light up , but then, in most states is the TOAD a trailer or a car being towed?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Liberty toad

Don't know about the 04, but on my 07 the bottom segment of the taillight is empty. We drilled a hole and snapped in a socket and wired to the front.

On my 2006 Liberty the bottom segment is empty and I drilled and installed bulbs. I haven't seen a small bulb kit. I used the Roadmaster kit. I did replace the bulbs in the kit with red Leds to reduce the current draw on the MH tail light system.

If you tow at night you probably need to light the license plate. I used a white 12 volt led and tapped into the new wiring for the tail lights.

I use an SMI Air Force One braking system that presses on the brake pedal so the normal brake lights come on whenever I hit the brakes in the MH.

My 04 Liberty had room for the Blue Ox light kit, you will find you have room for the extra socket then just wire it to the front

We had the lighting package installed in the 04 Jeep Liberty with no problems.

Your third (center mount) will illuminate due to your braking system's application or the break pedal.

Not all systems actuate the pedal in the toad. I use an M&G brake in my Cherokee and the pedal doesn't move due to the way this unit installs.

Also not all vehicles will activate the brake lights with the ignition off. My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee does not actuate the lights when applying the brake with the switch off. Alot of the newer vehicles don't activate the brake lights without the ignition switch being on or in the "run" position.
