Video Transcript

One of the first things people do with their Jeep, is get bigger wheels and tires; but if you go too big, you can actually block the third brake light, which is illegal. So we're going to show you how to fix that by installing a rugged ridge third brake light extension.

This third brake light extension is made of heavy duty steel, with a nice textured black finish. It features nine adjustment holes, and will work with the factory or aftermarket spare tire mount. And today we're going to install it on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler.

Tools you'll need for this installation; 3/8 ratchet, 10 millimeter socket, 13 millimeter socket, 10 millimeter wrench, Phillips screwdriver, T20 torch bit, a saws all, and safety glasses.

Very first thing we're going to do, is remove the spare tire.

Remove the eight bolts holding on the spare tire mount.

Remove the four T20 screws holding on the brake light. Unplug the third brake light.

In order to install the rugged ridge third brake light extension, the factory extension needs to be cut off the spare tire mount. We're just going to cut straight down here with a saws all.

You can now clean up your cuts, and make them nice and smooth.

Now you can install the third brake light extension behind the spare tire mount. Now this kit does come with hardware, However, we're going to use the factory hardware. We like the washers a little better. Now don't tighten these all the way, you need to keep these loose so you can install the bottom spacers.

Install the provided spacers on the bottom. Install the spacer on the other side. Then tighten them all down.

Run the wire through the spare tire mount. As you'll notice, this new extension is already at its lowest adjusting point and it's a couple inches higher than the factory light. As a result, the wire for the third brake light is not long enough, so you will need to extend the wire just a little bit to make it work.

Once you extend the harness to your liking, then you can mount the extensions where you'd like as well. In our case, we're going to use the lowest setting.

Now we're going to install the provided hardware.

Reinstall the spare tire, and your installation's finished.

Our rugged ridge third brake light extension is installed. We have plenty of clearance, even on the lowest setting. It can go all the way up to the roof. Installation is going to take about two hours. And before you know it, you'll be heading off road.
