For my new JK I purchased blacked out turn signal lenses to replace the stock orange ones on the grill and on the bumpers , only thing is I don't know how to install them. Anyone out there know how to do it?

I want to do that soon as well. Subscribed.

Also, where are those from? I've looked all over and have only found the Recon LEDs, which are too rich for my blood.

Thanks!

I searched for the lenses on ebay. Didn't see too many sellers. There were guys selling lenses for just the grill for over $100. I snagged this set of lenses for the grill and bumpers for $60, new, never opened.
If you go on ebay and search for the seller neondials (the guy i bought my stuff from) I think he still has an auction for black lenses for the grill. If the auction is still there i think its around $40
Hope that helps and happy holidays!

If anyone wants a pair of free (yes, free) clear lens that go on the flares, let me know. Brand new, nothing wrong with them - I'm just not going to use them since I am thinking of going flat fender this spring. These are only the two for the fenders, you'd still need the front ones. Hit me up on PM if you want them - consider it a Christmas gift.

In the grill lens - first you unplug the bulb harness with the back - take the whole bulb out while in the harness (it's easier).

There are two clips on the back of the light that snap it in place. If you push in and turn it, the lens and holder come out of the front of the grill.

Take the new lens and slide it in at the angle the old one came out and turn it to lock it in. It works the best to turn it from the back. Once it's in swap the light bulb to the amber one they send with it and put the oem back on it. The reason I use the oem back is that it seals better and has a better gasket.

It should also be noted that the front lens may have some rtv type glue on it, I had to wiggle it around by holding the back until it released and I put some rtv back on the same area of the new one although I think it would hold with no issues.
