JW Speaker rear LED lights

Does anyone know of US source to get the JW Speaker rear LED lights model 217? I have reached to JW Speaker and they directed me to a distributer, who did research and told me they were an OEM sold only in the UK? Mobliecentre.co.uk is who sells them under their own brand name. They are over $550, it seems we could find someone over here dealing in them. If not, what luck have you guys had in a quality set of LED rear light that didnt cost an arm and a leg???

Thanks

Correct link is http://www.mobilecentre.co.uk/

Why not get the Wipacs LED lights including Fog light?

Agreed, those look terrible. If you're going through all that trouble then get the NAS Spec rear LEDs we did a group buy of last year here.

Hi Jason,

I did the same research before for LED lamps to fit ROW postions and also found that JW Speaker only sell them to Mobilecentre...

It's too bad; they are made here, but we can only get them from the UK.

As to your question, there have been a few discussions regarding sources for LED rear lamps and I believe Josh even found a photo of one for ROW.

Here's just a quick search : http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...archid=2191356

Here's a set that might still be available : http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...1&postcount=81

They aren't sold here by distributors because they're not DOT approved. There is a forum member here who even works for them who I had contacted last year to bring them in, and he wasn't able to. Buy them in bulk from the UK, and resell them here.

That's a good point, Josh. Makes sense.

Chirs, I don't think Jason is looking for the larger NAS type lamps. The model 217 has a 72.5mm ("70mm") dia. and I think that's why Mobile Centre has them for the ROW vehicles...



Since it looks like JW Speaker makes them exclusively for Mobile Centre, that might explain the painfully high prices.

Since he has an early 110, he probably won't want the larger NAS spec lights. RN has sealed LED units in the same shape/size as the ROW lamps: http://landroverparts.roversnorth.co...LED-RED&key=it
