Model A Tail lights

I'm thinking about swapping my YJ tail lights for these?

What ya think?

Or maybe I should find some old school square ones?

I like the shape, but not crazy about the chrome.

no offense, I think they'd look goofy and out-of-place.

That's true. I didn't notice you had a YJ. I just read the thread from the new posts tab.

I think they'd look cool and unusual. Where can I get a pair?

I would go with flush... I wouldn't really worry about the round vs. square. Are they LED? That would far outweigh anything else in my opinion.

You also would need to put in back-up lights to pass inspection...Model A's didn't have 'em....

Yeah i agree with the whole square issue. round lights would just look awkward on a yj since its got square headlights and a more square front end/body period. I'd stick with square lights.
