Pics of JK with no spare/3rd brake light?

Anyone have pics of a smooth rear end on a JK? I'm curious as to what it looks like.
I know the law says you have to have a 3rd brake light if the vehicle came with one, and I also know there are options to retain it.

Thanks.

Just take yours off and see how you like it, it doesn't take that long. Don't disconnect the light right away, till you've backed off and admired it. Then if you decide to leave it off for a while, disconnect the light, replace the screws and call it a smooth butt!

I like the smooth look too, But then I would need a roof rack to hold the spare.

Ya think? It'll look a lot like this, only your bumper and tail lights will be different, and you have a vent in the tailgate.....


It'll take you 10 minutes if you don't disco the light..... just sayin' Took me longer to figure out the light thing than anything else.

"it'll look like this, only different".

i'm thinking between the vent, wiring and the indentation on the bumper for the spare, it's not going to look as nice as the tj does with a smooth butt.

Um...wouldn't that negate the idea of having no spare on the back? Lol

So where do you store your spare, behind the rear seat?

If you have a spare, don't you think the stock storage spot is ---CONVENIENT ???

Where else are you going to storeit ??

Inside--no room for anything else, on top-good luck !!

No spare ?? then I guess you won't go off-road !!

Whats your idea ??

I like the idea of not having anything on the back, but I'll definitely have the spare behind the back seat. poison spyder makes a plate to replace the vent on the back....it's under "rear corner armor", and they call it the tramp stamp. they have this on their 4-door jk

I think the spare on the back of a Jeep looks pretty cool.

You are never gonna fit a 35 inch tire behind that backseat russ.

Nope, I have it strapped to the floor with the seat removed. We don't have kids, and this is a play vehicle, so it's unnecessary. I have been thinking about playing with the welder and making a half seat/half carrier but for now it'll do.

I like having the spare where it is, it really kinda defines the Jeep.

well, the plan was to fold the back seat up and put it back there. if I need passenger seating they can put it in their lap or buy their own jeep. and it'll be 37 inch

When your friend get's in the back and you hand him the tire for his lap, Just tell them it's a "Jeep S.C.A.B." (Self Contained Air-Bag). For the first ever "6 star" safety rating.

I think the says if you have a third brake light and it is on the vehicle then at that point you have to have t working! If you remove it and the other two brake lights work then you are fine! Been pulled over before and the cop asked how do I like it and i said I think it is a better look! I throw my spare i'n the cargo area with the recovery gear when i plan m going off road! I'm i'n class now but I will post a picture when I'm done class
