Are Grand Cherokee tail light covers worth the money in terms of protection?
Answer: The debate on Grand Cherokee tail light covers, protectors, or guards can be very tricky. Because of its grilled design, some owners say that all these covers do is hook twigs and collect dirt rather than protect the lights. Others however believe that these guards have spared them a ticket or two because it guarded the lights from damaging rocks. At the end of the day, the service of the covers would still depend on whether they are high in quality or not.
Are smoked out tail lights on a Jeep Grand Cherokee a good idea?
Answer: It is never advisable to perform any changes on the tail lights that would lessen the brightness it gives. Other than smoked tail lights, this will also include tinting the lens cover. Though it may make the vehicle look cooler, reduced brightness can make it more difficult for other drivers to see the lights.
What are some of the common modifications that can be done on my Grand Cherokee Tail lights?
Answer: Start changing the tail light assembly by installing LED bulbs on the Grand Cherokee. Not only are these brighter than stock bulbs, the customization also improves the overall look of the ride. Another favorite among Grand Cherokee owners is the quad tail light mod. When doing any of these mods, just make sure the vehicle can handle the new power requirements of these new lights.
Why do some of the lights of the Jeep Grand Cherokee tail light assembly suddenly die when the headlights are turned on or the brakes stepped on?
Answer: Some causes of this problem include a burned-out bulb, some busted fuses, or a faulty electrical wiring. If these are verified ok and the problem is still there, the problem is too much heat from the bulb. This results to one or a couple of melted contacts under the bulb's sockets. For a quick fix, remove the assembly, bulb, and socket to expose the contacts. With a screwdriver set, pry the contacts up.
