April 27, 2022
Peterson offers a range of OE and aftermarket safety lighting products including a broad line of exterior work lights as well as interior and cargo lights, strobes and special safety lighting, and trailer harness systems.

JIT Truck Parts, a national aftermarket truck parts distributor directly servicing national, regional, and local fleets, announced the addition of Peterson Manufacturing’s U.S.-made commercial vehicle and trailer LED lighting and wiring harness systems, into a growing category of lighting products.

Peterson Manufacturing, started in 1945, is a family-owned and operated business that is an innovator in design, engineering, and manufacturing of a complete line of commercial vehicle and trailer wiring harness and lighting systems.

From OEMs to fleets to owner-operators, Peterson provides exterior, interior, and work light LED lighting technology, providing a brighter, safer work environment. The light-emitting diodes (LED) are vibration resistant with a low current-draw, boasting a longer life then the traditional halogen and incandescent lights. These high-quality LEDs offer drivers better visibility with less glare, which improves object recognition at night for drivers and reduces eye strain. In addition, LEDs are easy to install on large commercial vehicles and their long life reduces the cost of replacing lights over time.

Peterson offers a wide range of OE and aftermarket safety lighting products including a broad line of exterior work lights as well as interior and cargo lights. Peterson offers Stop/Turn/Taillights, Turn signals, Clearance/Marker lights, and Back-up lights. Plus, synchronized strobes and special safety lighting is available for specialized markets like refuse and tanker.

While their lighting portfolio offers a breadth of coverage, what separates them from competitors is Peterson’s unique trailer harness systems, JIT Truck Parts stated. Peterson’s modular wiring harnesses, PetersonPATRIOT and Defender, provide strong defense against moisture intrusion and corrosion, reducing safety violations, downtime, and maintenance costs. They feature integrated moisture barriers that protect wires from capillary damage and improved electrical connections and sealed ring terminals mean maximum protection.
