While I agree simple is generally good I'll give you the downside to "aux" bulb lighting systems vs the CoolTech or the Mopar wiring harness for the JK. I have the CoolTech harness on my 2012 JK and the nice thing about the harness kits is ALL the Jeep running lights are on at night when towed which they would not be in a LED or secondary bulb system. That is kind of handy when towing a 12 ft Jeep behind a MH when viewed from the side at night. The other feature is I have a small 12v led lamp in my MH wired to the brake light switch and when I press the MH brake the toad braking system activates (RoadMaster Brakemaster air brake cylinder) I immediately see the feedback that the toad brakes work in the MH.
I attempted to install a blue ox red led light kit. I could not get them to work right. I spent a lot of time chasing my tail with blue ox tech support. I finally got the tech to send me incandesant bulbs and sockets, I hooked them up and they worked just like they were supposed to. The red led kit was not very bright at all, very hard to see in daylight.
I use auxillary 1157 bases in my stock lights and 1157 LED bulbs w/102 3528 LED's . These bulbs are at least as bright as the std. tail lights if not brighter. No front side marker lights, but the rear ones light via the aux. lights.
