Question about 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 2 Doors
(i) I need a light kit for my Jeep. The dealership wants $80+ for a 7 prong (round) kit. I can buy a universal [4-prong] plug from Auto Zone for $30. Should I be concerned about purchasing from AutoZone?
(ii) The dealership does not stated that a 4-prong (flat) kit is no longer available after 2006 models. Why would this be the case? Are they just trying to sell me a $80 unnecessary part? I do realize that converters are available.
I would not hesitate to buy it from auto zone. The 7 prong will have only 3-4 usable prongs, the others will be empty. The flat 4 prong is the same, just flat and only have the usable prongs. I work for BOSCH and this is a big example how bad people get ripped off. We make an aftermarket oxygen sensor for almost any car. It's produced for about $7. Sold to parts store for $12, and then sold to you for $60+ , It is produced the same way with the same components. But we also make the OEM for $7, sold to dealerships for $17 and cost you $100+. Dealerships are a rip off, but people hesitate to buy aftermarket parts when they are usually 100% made the same. It's all about money in the long haul for these dealerships. So buy the aftermarket 4 prong kit.

I wouldn't worry about the AutoZone one. It's the same color coded wire as in the kits from other places. You can also check:
They have kits that have the round plug for under $20.
