JK Headlights for a TJ???

Does any one know, or has anyone tried to get JK lights installed into a TJ. I am thinking of doing a headlight conversion and I really like the looks of the JK lights.

Any thoughts?

Okay, here we go...

Now the TJ lights are obsolete and we need to change them to JK lights.

Just put square ones in and be done with it.

im pretty sure(afaik) that they are the same size they just dont have headlight rings and are sunken in more at the bottom from the grill angle. but if you want to get a similar look you could color match your headlight rings to the body color of your jeep so that the headlight rings are less noticable.

heres a jeep from another forum that color matched the headlight bezels

there was a thread on JU about how it is pretty much a direct swap for JK lights into a TJ - all that was needed to make it work was acquire the different pigtail coming from the TJ's harness that would plug into the JK light assembly. if you find a JK in a yard it would be easy to grab them; any other method would be nonexistant since the pigtail permanently a part of the whole JK lighting harness. clear as mud?
