Three major problems with this kit. One if you have an aftermarket tire carrier, like Jcr's you have to be careful not to tear your wires out when opening the tire carrier. Two you have to remove the wiring and bracket to get to your spare tire. Three the plate should be supported with a full bracket. The weight of the third brakelight bracket, connected only on the bottom of the the license plate will cause the plate to crack overtime. I've had mine on over 2 years now , and almost lost my plate because of this. I have bought several JCR products over the years for my jeeps . I normally like their products and think they are of good quality, but they really missed the mark with this one.
Note From JcrOffroad: Jeffrey thanks for the review. This bracket has been redesigned based on customer feedback. You can see the new bracket system installed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXYWp-ZO4yc

Got this for my JK and absolutely love the new tag location. VERY easy install, and very bright led tag light. Highly recommended, and very budget friendly.

Fit good, had no problems mounting it. Was kind of a pain to change a tire, ended up cutting it up and using it to mount the plate on my hilift once i got a spare tire cover. LED is pretty bright.

This is a solid kit that fits everything, but I feel the price was a bit jacked for all the extra pieces you're getting. Put this on my XJ, wish you could choose what you needed even if it knocked just a few bucks off the price. Overall, I just dig JCRs parts and how they play together. It's like the Lego of Jeep aftermarket.

Fit was off, had to grind and bend the "arms" to fit this on my tire carrier pins "5x4.5 XJ spacing, custom bumper". Ordered it with the powder coat but grinding pretty much wrecked that, wish I'd gotten it unfinished. Two-part design is nice for being able to remove the tire without a hassle. Included wire is very short, you will need more. Even with all these issues it still is the best thing like it on the market that I've found.

Ordered the JL version with 3rd brake light. The fabricated metal brackets were of great quality. The electrical component were not so great. The LED for the license plate had wires much too small for the supplied butt connectors. Had to fold bare wires over to make them thick enough for the supplied connectors to hold. Additionally, the ‘double-sided tape' for the plate LED was worthless and I had to use double sided tape of my own. I'm hoping it stays on. The 3rd brake light was not the one from the video instructions, and did not install anywhere near the instructions. The ground for the 3rd brake light has a terminal end lug routes to the front of the light, in plain sight as you look at the light. Not visually pleasing at all. Additionally, no hardware was supplied to attach the 3rd brake light bracket to the license plate. The supplied spare wiring for the license plate LED was only 8” long and only made it from the passenger brake light assembly to the inside of the Jeep
