XTR LP License Plate Reverse Light - GROUP BUY!?

Hey Crew!

This is Caleb @ Xenon Depot!

We recently have just released a new product that I think many of you are going to find pretty interesting and Super beneficial! I wanted to get a Group Buy going for this here as it fits the 4Runner so well, and if you have a Back-up Camera, you're really in for a Treat!

BACK IT UP: Up front we've already got bright low beams, high beams, and fog lights, but too often overlooked is our ability to see well while backing up in the dark. While there are plenty of LED bulb upgrades out there for stock reverse lights; when it comes to a backup light boost there's simply no comparison to the XTR LP.

ENGINEERED: The XTR LP is the only system on the market that leverages optical refinement over raw power to produce the perfect reverse light beam pattern. We started by understanding the most typical installation angles and then optimized the lens to distribute the most possible light in the most effective pattern. To pack a real punch, the XTR LP packs more than just a lot of LED's into a line on the back of car. It's a fully engineered product.

WHAT'S INSIDE: 54 CREE J Series 2835 LEDs rated at 4500K/80CRI. 180mA driver produces 29.9W of maximum power pumps out 2700 raw lumens that's translated into 1950 real lumens after transmission through the optical lens.

TECHNICALLY SPEAKING: At a 10-degree mounting angle, the vertical range is -20 to +25 degrees. At the most typical 0-degree mounting angle, the XTR LP provides a -30 to +15 degree vertical spread, which easily exceeds the illumination range of any standard backup for spread. Users should acknowledge that this product far exceeds the legal limit for output volume in a reverse light application.

BOLT-ON: The XTR LP will bolt onto your vehicle's top two license plate mounts. Its die-cast aluminum housing is contoured according to the geometry of US-spec license plates for a flush fit, and the mounting points are positioned according to the same universal standard. The system is finished in a satin black powder coat.

WIRING:The XTR LP is powered on with a simple +/- 12v circuit that's intended to tap in to your stock reverse light wiring. The system includes 1.5 meters of integrated wiring that can be trimmed back according to your application, a quick-disconnect for ease of install, and an integrated rubber grommet to keep moisture and dust out of a pass-through hole if necessary.

Would this be something that interests you? Let's see what the Interest is, and I'll see what I can drum up for a Discount!

Thank You & Be Safe,
-Caleb @ XD

XenonDepot XTR shows $75. Normal sales are 10-15% off, with 20% off for most major holidays. Holiday sale would drop it to $60 plus s/h (usually free).
Is a group buy going to get better than that?
How is this wired though? The Subie install video looks pretty simple because the reverse lights are in the hatch. Significantly more wiring would be required for the 4Runner where the reverse lights are on the pillars but the license plate is on the liftgate. At 180mA I'm assuming it's such a small load that it's safe to add to most reverse circuits?

Shipping to Canada shouldn't be too bad at all! I'd assume right around the $25-$30 mark.

The discount will be determined by how much interest this gets really. If enough people get in on the idea, I imagine it'll be in that 15-20% off Bracket.

This system just wires straight into your Reverse light circuit! No need for Resistors or anything along those lines, these LEDs are super concervative and will not cause any issues/warning messages on your dash! It's just a quick little addition that makes all the difference. It might be tougher on the 4Runners due to their setup/design, but it is do-able! I'd recommend recruiting the use of a Fish wire to help route the wiring up into position where you can Solder/T-Tap them in-line.

How many people have to be in for the 20% discount?

There's a 20% spring sale at the moment for a similar product that's also normally $75

I'm still getting the specifics narrowed in with Bossman for 20%, but I want to shoot for 20-25+ people if possible! I think that'd be enough to warrant a 20% for you guys.

Are you referring to the VLEDs License Plate strip? We've seen and played around with those too, these ones are actually more usable! The Diffused lens on it helps scatter the Light being casted, flooding the area behind you and allowing a more Broad range of view whereas the VLED model has a Clear lens that doesn't offer much for Directional output. The Warranty on it is also 5-Years vs. VLED's 3-Year warranty.

I would not consider this a ďsimpleĒ mod on a 5th Gen. If youíve taken your back hatch apart before youíll know whatís involved in fishing a wire harness through the hatch door, through the rubber hatch boots, into the headliner and down into the rear brake/reverse light access panel. Not super difficult but it will take you a good amount of time and determination. (As in installing the Ultimate Camping mod). And youíll have to drill thorough the hatch and then seal it. Set aside a long day or two to do it.

It would probably be a good idea for some member to act as a guinea pig and get a light assembly, set it in the proper position, temporarily connect it to +12 volts at night, and see if itís worth the effort to install it. Take photos and write up a review in this thread. Maybe XD could send a complementary one out for review. Then we all can decide on a group buy.

Edit:
Some suggestions for XD: The wire length of 1.5 meters is not enough for the 5th gen 4R. Youíll need at least 2 meters for all the routing and strain relief that needs to be done. Plus the twin lead wiring is rather fragile for this. It would be better to include a two conductor plastic coated cable that would withstand all the abrasion, bending, and tugging that will be done when fishing it through the 4R hatch and rear pillar innards.
