You’ll have the ability to control the lights from an app on your smartphone, and have access to a vast assortment of color choices. As with any set of Jeep wheel well lights, figuring out the electrical aspect of installation is going to be the difficult part.

There’s a remote control that comes with the set, and you’ll also be able to use an app on your phone to pick your colors and control the lights.

4. PSEQT 10 Pcs LED Rock Strip Blue Lights (ASIN – B08CB4YLLH)
If you don’t feel the need for multiple colors, this next option may be for you. It’s a set consisting of 10 blue light strips that you can attach to the wheel well of your Jeep. They are both bright and durable, which is important to consider as you shop. If you’re on a tight budget, this is a great pickup, as you can get the whole set for a little under $20 as of this writing.

Finally, we have a set of simple white lights for your Jeep. They come from popular manufacturer Nilight, who always offer reliable lighting products for vehicles. While installation can be something of a pain, the end result will definitely be worth the effort.

With them, you should be able to see the area around your Jeep with ease.
Jeep Wheel Well Lights Buying Guide
Did our list provide you with a set of lights that suits your needs? If you weren’t able to find a good match, don’t give up looking! While there are a ton of options out there, you can find a quality set by knowing what to look for. You’ll find that information just below in our factors of focus section. After that, we’ll give you some advice when it comes to installation. Lastly, we’ll leave you off with a little bit more on Ultimate Rides and what we do here. We hope that this guide proves useful to you! Remember that you can contact our office with questions if any pop up that we don’t cover here. Let’s get started!
Factors of Focus
Your main priority when shopping for Jeep wheel well lights should be durability/quality. There are definitely plenty of lighting kits out there that won’t stand the test of time. You should keep an eye out for high-quality parts like aluminum housing, as well as the strength of construction. Product descriptions can usually provide some of the info you need, but you’ll also need to dive into customer reviews to get a better sense of what each lighting kit has to offer.
Additionally, pay attention to the strength of the lighting. LEDs can be measured by lumens, which tells you how bright their lighting is. Not every product has this information listed, but some of the best ones do. Once again, customer reviews can be useful here. They may not be able to tell you the exact Lumen count, but they can let you know how bright a given light is.
Lastly, think about style and ease of us. The best lighting kits will offer Bluetooth control via an app on your phone, and many will also provide a remote control. Color can be a big factor too. Some lighting sets like you pick from a vast range of colors, while others are limited to a single option. If all you want is that one color, going with that kit could save you a great deal of money.
Installing Underbody Lights
Once you’ve determined which lights you want and had them delivered, it’s time to get them on your Jeep. While attaching the lights themselves is usually pretty easy, it’s the electrical where the real work is to be done. For most lighting kits, we recommend opting for professional installation. That will ensure the lights are installed properly, and you won’t run into any safety hazard issues while you drive. If you opt to install them at home, make sure you carefully follow the instructions on how to set up the wiring.
