Ideas on Cleaning Up tailgate

Ok team, need some help here.

I want to clean up the tailgate area and remove the spare tire mount (most of my driving is local, if I go off-road or out of the area I'll throw the spare in the back).

Idea is to put the CJ conversion on (tailgate folds down vice out). Nice kit.

Also want to do the round red LED taillights.

Ok, here's where I need help.

Problem 1 - In Virginia, I need the third brake light to pass the annual state inspection. Are there aftermarket options for this.

Problem 2. I do not want two sets of taillights on both sides. If I install the red LED taillights, what about the white reverse lights? How do I work this one?

Anyone come across this before?

....have also seen a couple of TJs around here that have the tailgate with "JEEP" in the metal. Anyone seen where to get one?

Those are old CJ tailgates.

Here's mine



Haven't had an issue with not having third brake light or reverse lights. Since you need a third brake light for inspection you put a LED strip or bar light under the rear valence, there is a lip thing which would be the perfect spot and be inconspicuous.

This is what I want, nice and clean.

Looking into the strip LEDs for the third brake light. This may work.
