You can get them at most Parts stores. I had to replace the one in my 2005 Rubi when the modified one I did went bye-bye.

I found it at a military surplus here in Utah, welded it up to a reciever. I like it much better that a ball sack hanging like some have. I do have to remove it when wheeling, gets anoying hitting the rocks

Got em off of quadratec, no cutting required, just straight install. I like them, but if i could do it again i would get the flush mounted tails. And the back up light on them are completely useless

On my jeep I have GROTE lights
Grote Industries: Product #53312 - Red, Grommet Mount
Grote Industries: Product #66815 - 6" Long, Ground Return,Slim-Line .180 Male
Truck-Lite - Catalog Product : Mounting Grommets For 4'' Lamps
*I used the Trucklite grommet instead of a Grote grommet because it was a better fit.

these Grote's have a lot of LEDs and the red lens is reflective (which is a requirement in some states unless you want to also put reflective tape on your bumper). These GROTE lights are also thin so that they will fit even if you have an evap canister in the passenger side rear fender.

In the 5 or 6 years I've had them not one LED bulb has burnt out. And I've banged them into rocks a lot and after a rollover they are still going strong.

They don't have backup lights or license plate lighting so you'll have to address that with additional lighting.

For my license lamp I used a SuperBright license plate lamp:




for my reverse lighting I put in a single 6.5" white oval LED light flush into my rear bumper:

You just need to take your flasher module out and cut a trace. See our tech section and there is a link to a write up.

This needs to be done with any LED lights. Good for any 1997 to 2000.

Here they are after I first installed them in 2005.



Here are some photos of them lit up on the trail



Here is one from 2008 just after both a very bad endover and roll (bent the frame pretty bad). You can see that the driver side rear LED housing was hit in the rollover (but it didn't crack or break and still works perfect) and the housing was only pushed into the hole/recess a bit and tearing the grommet. This is why a rubber grommet is superior to a hard mounted or plastic retainer/grommet. The rubber grommet gives instead of cracking and breaking the LED housing.


here is the same LEDs and grommet. Photo was taken last month. I need to still someday replace that torn rubber grommet but it is still working the way it is.


external taillights without using flush mount rubber grommets would have been broken and torn off. Anyways, i wouldn't invest in any aftermarket tail lights if they were not flush mounted using rubber grommets.
