1997 tail lights

I have a 97 tj that I'm wanting to put 2008 tail lights on. Has anybody tried this? I don't want to buy then and then find out I can't make then work. I know they are formed to fit the edge of the 08. But hoping they still will work.

Here are the two lights side by side:





As you can see everything is different about the lights and where they mount on the Jeep. The tub radius is probably the biggest difference. You'd most likely have to add some adapter brackets of some kind to make this mod work.

Here are a few Tail Lights that will bolt right up to your TJ.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
