I think they mandated it in 1995, that is why most YJ's don't have them.

You can always get a light that mounts into the trailer hitch. Or mount one on the tailgate.

I like Xpress's idea. dead center of tailgate. maybe an oblong / oval light would look good

My 1994 had one. I removed it when I put on the swing away tire carrier. If your state requires one, you could always use a surafce mount LED and mount it to the center of the tailgate or on the new spare tire carrier(if you are installing one).

My 94' third light came off when I wanted to put my 33 on the tire carrier. I made a couple changes, needed to remove the light and rubber bumpers. Also had to cut part of my tube bumper out of the way for the tire to clear.

Why not do one of the led strips underneath the tailgate like the pickup trucks do?
