Metra Electronics has added to its Jeep Accessories line with two new aftermarket products designed to help installers upgrade the sound and lighting systems within Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator models. Metra’s new soundbar speaker adapter and RGB off-road fog lights expand on the line’s existing speaker pods and RGB off-road headlights for a complete solution for Jeep upgrades.
Jeep owners looking to take the next step can choose to keep the factory soundbar and upgrade to larger speakers in 2018-up Jeep Wrangler JL and 2020-up Jeep Gladiator models. The JP-1015 soundbar speaker kit is designed to adapt the OEM four-inch speakers and one-inch tweeter to an aftermarket 6.5-inch speaker and optional tweeter. The soundbar speaker adapter enclosure is designed to withstand tough, off-road adventures with its high-quality ABS plastic.
The JP-1014 replacement speaker pods for 2018-up Jeep Wrangler JL and 2020-up Jeep Gladiator models complement the new JP-1015 when upgrading the sound system. This pair replaces the original four-inch speakers located under the driver and passenger dashboard to install a six to 6.75-inch aftermarket speaker. Like the JP-1015, the JP-1014 was created with ABS housing that utilizes the factory mounting locations for a secure fit.
For some added “wow factor,” JeepWrangler JK, JL, and Gladiator models, can add a set of four-inch RGB backlit halo off-road fog lights (JP-704RGBFL) designed to match Metra’s existing JP-704RGB seven-inch round off-road headlights. The polycarbonate lens cover offers a strong seal rated IP67 to withstand harsh weather and off-road environments. The 15 white LEDs have a bright 800-lumen output for each fog light, consuming 30 watts total per light. The backlight RGB lights have 16 million different color options – all controlled through Metra’s RGB smartphone app. The fog lights plug-n-play with Metra’s RGB-CB1 controller, which is sold separately and required for operation. Depending on the model or trim level, additional fog light mount brackets may be required for the installation, and installers should see the JP-JFOG or JP-JFOG2 for vehicle-specific details. All of the products mentioned above are in stock and shipping now.
