No not talking about your license plates (tags) most states inspection tags you have a sticker on your windshield after or something of the sort.

Yea I thought about that but upon further searching the entire vehicle has to be present during the inspection so they have to be on the jeep plus it has to be inspected in december and it gets pretty cold here in december

I see my reverse lights just fine and I passed inspection in Kenner, LA and they are well known for being the toughest inspection sight in the state. So strict in fact that they are the only location in the state that will not allow you to go to a state run facility. If you live in the city of Kenner you have to get a tag in Kenner because they refuse to trust anyone at a gas station.


So, 'nuff said. I will not comment on this topic again. If you don't like it, don't do it.

iluvshoes..... your jeep looks sweet with the blacked out lights. And yes, you can get LED bulbs that fit right into your stock lights, you just won't find them at Autozone. As for the fast blinking that lilyeller spoke of, there is a way to fix that, I just have to find it, it's been a while.

Your tires look big yet they fit nicely under (or I should say line up with) your flares. How wide is your tires? The BF has 31x10.50x15 and they stick out pass his flares (he likes them that way) but your tires look WAY bigger than his.

thats a good site and I believe they sell the relays to cure the fast flash, Just call them and they will hook you up with all the right products.

Ma is registration every 2 years which is just a fee and every year. Regardless of age has to go in for a safety and emissions inspection. But if it's older than 16 years you don't have to do emissions. But still must do a safety

Hey. I didn't say I didn't like them! I also have my lights lightly tinted. But didn't tint the reverses. One it makes the light tiny look even darker while effecting light output even less. And I can't see crap backing up as is. Tinted would be even harder. I actually put rear facing lights just because I couldn't see a damn thing with my top on from the factory tint

Type "GCD-TJ0106" into ebay for the flasher (if your TJ is 01-06). It's the exact one I got and it's been flawless thus far.

There is a fix for the TJ models, I have it posted in my build thread, that cost around 15 min and $0.00 . but I cant say the same for the JK models, I did a small search and the JK models use a different type of system that doesnt incorporate a flasher relay, so unfortunately for the JK people you are stuck with using resistors to bring it back up to normal draw (4 ohm and 35 watts.) Im sure some people in the JK section have done the LED lights and would be able to shed some "light" on the situation... (ok bad joke sorry lol)

Something along the lines of finding the circuit board and using an exacto knife to slice a connection. I believe its under the http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/chea...ds-102868.html thread. Just didnt have time too look thru the 150 pages. Sorry

Yep... 33x12.5x15 mounted on 15" rims with 4" backspacing matched with 7" wide stock style fenders. They line up perfectly. They look just like the stock flares but wider.
You can see how they line up pretty good in this one.

I guess they help keep that area around the antenna a bit cleaner. lol

I have a set of lights to mount on the rear too, just haven't gotten around to doing it yet..... along with the 4 for the front, the LED's under the sides that will come on when the doors are opened and the full under carriage LED system. Not to mention the other stuff. It never ends.

Nice. May I ask how much thread you get out the bottom? I bought a different set and I get just enough thread out the bottom to put the nut on. I get like 1.5-2 turns on the nut. Wish it had more.

Compared to stock flares they help a lot, and I did say a "little" cleaner lol you can get anything filthy, especially if you play hard enough
