    Gladiator JT Truck bed cargo courtesy lights timing

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions to make the bed lights stay on longer? I love the feature itself but I can barely do a damn thing back there at night before the lights turn off. Can a tazer or similar fix this?

    There isn't a switch to turn the cargo lights on? I remember my old truck had one. I actually got pulled over by a CHP for unknowingly driving with them on.

    They donít say on the website but I bet you could program a Tazer in Light Show Mode to leave it on.

    Even with a door open, they shut off after about 10-15 seconds. Fun packing a truck in the dark with that constant interruption.

    Good point. I'll have to check. My old F150 had a switch as well.

    Sure looks like it. I'll be getting one once I switch tires regardless.

    Did you not get the extra auxiliary buttons? Led lights are cheap and Iím sure could light up a lot better than the stock one.

    The bottom half of the headlight switch should be the bed light switch.

    I have the switches. But honestly the output of the lights is great. Just wished they stayed on longer.

    Just tried that. It works, however they only stay on with a door open. With the door closed, they shut off. I'm going to recheck it by leaving the tailgate open but I can't with where it's parked right now. I'll look at it later.

    I also rolled the interior light switch up all the way which forces the interior lights to stay on and with the interior lights on constantly, the bed lights don't even come on at all.

    Even with tailgate open and bed light switch on, they still turned off after a very short time. I even made sure the key fob was in the driver's seat.

    How about with the engine running? I know itís not ideal especially if parked inside. Just seems silly to have all the lights if they are useless like that.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
