Even compared to the mighty JK, the 2018-2019 Jeep JL Wrangler is more modern, more efficient, and more capable off-road! That said, the JL does have a few shortcomings, particularly when it comes to lighting. From the factory, the stock backup lights make it difficult to see what’s behind you at night, especially out on the trail! Whether your JL is equipped with the OEM halogen or LED reverse lighting, you’ve probably noticed the stock reverse lighting just isn’t all that bright.

Fortunately, there is a new bolt-on solution! Introducing our new Rear Hardtop Light Bar Bracket Kit for the 2018-2019 Jeep JL Wrangler! Computer-designed to bolt onto the factory rear window hinge, this kit allows you to mount a rear-facing 30” Stage Series Light Bar to your JL Wrangler’s hardtop WITHOUT any modification. This kit even utilizes your JL’s stock hatch hardware for an ultra clean, OEM-like look!

The included steel powdercoated brackets were engineered at our facility in St. Louis specifically for our Stage Series Light Bar. Unlike generic LED light bar brackets, these won’t warp or bend when off-roading. And thanks to the slim, low profile design, your JL Wrangler’s rear window will remain fully functional!

  • CAD-designed for perfect fitment on 2018-2019 Jeep JL Wrangler
  • Allows you to mount one 30" Stage Series LED Light Bar across the rear window hinge.
  • Low profile design, allows the JL’s rear window to remain fully functional.
  • Utilizes existing mounting points for easy installation - NO cutting or drilling required!
  • Highly durable powdercoated steel construction.

Installing this kit is simple and straightforward, and can be done at home using basic hand tools! Using a ratchet or drill, you’ll remove two 10mm bolts from each hatch hinge. Then, simply slide the brackets between the window and hardtop, and reinstall factory hardware. With the brackets in place, mount your 30” Stage Series Light Bar using the supplied hardware. Finally, you’ll run the light bar harness down through the rear hatch, along the chassis, and connect it to your power source!

Each Rear Hardtop Light Bar Bracket Kit features everything you need to install it on your JL Wrangler, including:
  • Two (2) Application-specific hardtop brackets
  • One (1) SS30 Stage Series 30" Light Bar
  • One (1) Heavy Duty Single-Output Harness
  • One (1) DT Extension Wire
  • Five (5) Adhesive wire clips
  • Ten (10) Zip ties
  • Installation guide

The 30” Stage Series LED Light Bar featured in our Rear Hardtop Light Bar Bracket Kit features our new flood optic. Packing an industry-leading 80Hx50W degree spread of light, our flood optic is the perfect solution for backing your JL up on the trail, setting up a campsite, or hooking up a trailer at night!

  • Fits all 2018 and 2019 Jeep JL Wranglers
  • Fits all trim levels including Sport, Sport S, Sahara, Rubicon, and Unlimited
