    So when you pull the 3rd break light out does it just unplug from the harness? If so can you buy the connector with pig tails.

    How about some @Baja Designs love?


    So far this is my favorite version. Sending it out to a member to test fit and get some installed pics:D

    I have not sourced the OEM connector, so you will have to tap into the stock brake wiring harness. I'm working out that detail at the moment...

    God I can't wait for this for my 3rd gen AC. I'd really love to see the two/down two straight back design of the Baja model in the KC lights. Shit I even bought the KC lights last year when you developed the original before I read the thread and realized it wouldn't fit my AC.

    Agreed. I painted my boards and screw heads based on your recommendation and they came out great!ADA67C82-83F7-44CC-8AA3-1ED0203CFD2A.jpg4BF7DAD2-8F8A-470A-A34F-92E6F72E1046.jpg

    @mesojdm Any chance the NMO antenna mount will be incorporated into the Baja Designs brake light? Or at least offered as an option in your final product?

    I cant wait for you to release these lights. The bd improved version is the best one yet in my opinion. When can I place an order!

    KC and BD housings have been sent out to testers. Once they are confirmed(or any tweaks needed) I can run some of them. The 2nd Gen housings should be a little cheaper and quicker to make since they are smaller and require muck less hardware.

    For the 3rd gen? You could source your own hardware, but some are pretty specific (M6 threaded C clips, Correct diameter/durometer o ring material for seal, etc)
    The 2nd Gens wont need any of that, because it will reuse the stock seal, and they already have the stock mounting screws/holes.
    Same as 2nd gen. Once they are good to go, they will work for 3rd Gen AC as well:D
