- Mount two SSC1, SSC2, or C1R pods underneath the 2019-2023 Ram 1500 rear bumper.
- Provides high-power reverse light, red accent light, and 4th brake light (w/ C1R option).
- Connects to trailer hitch wiring for simple, everyday operation of lights.
- Bolts on to rear bumper, no cutting or modification to factory bumper.
- Designed and assembled in USA.
Overview. There are plenty of ways to add light behind your Ram 1500, but the new Stage Series Reverse Light Kit stands out with innovations in both function and ease of use. This kit includes a powerful reverse light, integrated red running light and high-power 4th brake light (C1R only)! The included plug-and-play harness allows you to activate it automatically with your reverse lights, for a truly integrated solution.
Plug and Play. Thanks to custom-molded connectors, this kit is completely plug-and-play. The included harness plugs right into your factory trailer hitch wiring for easy installation and operation. No cutting, drilling, or routing wires to the frontend! The kit operates as an additional red accent light, with your tail lights, and then automatically switches to a high-power backup light when your vehicle is in reverse. If you went with the C1R option, it also operates as a powerful 4th brake light that activates anytime you apply your brakes. If you would like to have override functionality to manually turn on the main beam anytime, you will need to purchase the universal backup harness.
Brighter Backup. Factory reverse bulbs just don't provide enough light output to back up at night confidently. By pairing our patented TIR optics with high-powered LEDs, the pods included in this kit provide an additional reverse light that's several times brighter than stock bulbs alone. Plus, they automatically come on when the vehicle is put in reverse!
Additional Running Light. The Stage Series LED pods included with this kit feature a distinctive backlight in a vibrant red color which functions as an additional accent light while driving! The backlight fully illuminates the TIR optic, providing a more unique and modern look than the small indicator LEDs found in other products.
Optional SafetyStrobe 4th Brake Light. The C1R option features a high-power red function to serve as a powerful 4th brake light, along with the low-power running light. The high-power red functionality activates anytime you apply your brakes, adding a 4th brake light to your vehicle.
The C1R also features optional brake light strobing, which can be activated in 15-second intervals. By default, the C1R will flash three times when the brake lights are initially applied, for greater visibility. The SafetyStrobe feature can be easily disabled if desired.
Focused. Traditional optics like reflectors or simple lenses lose light internally and to glare, so not all of the light shines on target. Instead, the custom-engineered TIR optic in our Stage Series pods collects all of the light from the LED, and directs it only where you need it, drastically reducing glare and improving total efficiency.
From there, while other options on the market lose as much as 10% of the light output shining through an outer lens, the custom-molded TIR optic in the Stage Series LED pods serves as both the optic and main lens for greater efficiency and light output (patent pending). Thanks to this innovative feature, when coupled with high-intensity LED chips, the total intensity of our pods is much greater than other LED pods using basic optics or reflectors with a standard outer lens.
Functional Patterns. All Stage Series beam patterns were designed with optical simulation modeling, to shape the output in a highly-functional beam pattern.
Flood pattern was designed to provide uniform, even illumination with a full 50x50 degree spread of light on the SSC1 LED pod and 60x60 degree spread of light on the SSC2 LED pod. Unlike generic "flood" lights that are simply a heavily diffused spotlight, our flood pattern uses pillow optics on the outer lens surface, to provide a true optically designed spread, for even illumination throughout.
Sport or Pro. The SSC1 and SSC2 LED pods are available at two different power levels. Both options use high-intensity LED emitters, and TIR optics for unmatched focus and overall output. However, the Pro option is double the amount of total power. Click the Specifications tab to see more information!
Proven Reliability. Stage Series LED lighting has been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like factory components. They've also been put to the test on-road by racers and enthusiasts alike.
