    Baja Designs | SAE Compliance Service Bulletin

    In November 2019 a third party made Baja Designs aware that the SAE Squadron was out of compliance with J583 guidelines. We immediately shipped samples to a testing facility for further verification. Our testing discovered that the light was over by 119 candelas on the upward horizontal axis. In more understandable terms, that is the equivalent of 1.19 candles at 10 meters. Our engineering department has been working on a fix for existing customers ensuring their SAE Squadron’s comply. We have developed a lens insert that has been tested and confirmed by Intertek, the global leader in compliance testing, that can be installed into existing products.

    Current backorders of our SAE Squadron will ship in 3-4 weeks. Existing customers can either install the insert themselves or contact Baja Designs directly requesting a shipping label. Once we receive the light in-house, our trained technicians will update the SAE Squadron followed by expediting the now compliant Squadron back free of charge.

    Please reach out to Baja Designs directly ensuring your SAE Squadron is updated within a timely manner.

    Few questions for you...

    1. For new orders (not existing customers) will the light or lens be different, or will it just have this new insert pre-installed?
    2. does this new insert negatively impact the light output?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    New orders will have the insert installed by us before shipping

    You will notice less spill light but the overall output isn't going to be reduced

    thanks. So I’m guessing it will likely be the beginning of Jan to fulfill my Black Friday order.

    Correct - if you ordered an SAE product during Black Friday, it will most likely ship in early January

    I’ll need to get on the list for replacement lenses. The company I bought my lights from is we down me the lights prior to retrofit.

    how would I get on the list?
