Tailgate Light Bars: TailFlex® vs. Rigid


As LEDGlow welcomed the new TailFlex® Tailgate Light Bar, we thought we’d help you out with understanding the differences between the original rigid Tailgate LED Light Bars and the brand new flexible TailFlex® LED Tailgate Light Bars. Both versions are highly durable and waterproof, with a slim design that will provide your truck with added style and visibility. Both light bar options feature SMD LEDs and are available with a white LED reverse light function.


The original LEDGlow Tailgate Light Bar is available in 49” for compact trucks or 60” for full size trucks. This light bar features ultra-bright LEDs for running, brake, hazard, and turn signal functions. If you choose the light bar with the reverse option, the light bar will contain ultra-bright white LEDs for the added reverse light signal function. This light bar can easily be installed with the included 3M™ tape and self-tapping screws. If your truck does not have a standard flat 4 pin connection, you can splice the included wire harness to your truck’s signal wires to give you a secure hard-wired connection.


LEDGlow’s new Tailflex® LED Tailgate Light Bar for trucks is offered in three different lengths that include a 36”, 49”, and 60”, making the tailgate light bar available for installation to any Jeep or SUV as well as compact, mid-size and full size trucks. TailFlex® is a flexible tailgate light bar that allows you to bend and curve the bar to achieve the perfect fitment on your truck. This light bar also features SMD LEDs and is available in red or with optional reverse light functions. The TailFlex® light bar will alert other motorists on the road with running, brake, hazard, turn signal light, and reverse light functions to give your truck better visibility while driving at night. Mounting this light bar is simple with the included double sided 3M™ Tape as well as using the included mounting brackets and self-tapping screws for added reinforcement.

If you’re constantly towing and using a trailer, LEDGlow offers an optional Tailgate Light Bar Y-Splitter Harness that allows you to easily install your light bar into your truck’s flat 4 pin connector. This Tailgate Light Bar Y-Splitter Harness allows you to power your trailer lights as well as your tailgate light bar simultaneously from the same harness. The Y-Splitter features 18 inches of length with 9 inches of wire for both the tailgate light bar and trailer lights connections.

Both styles of tailgate light bars include a one year limited warranty and free lifetime technical support with each purchase.
