Hi amerijeep
I went to autozone yesterday and seen a set of square LED light that are Simalar to the Square stock lights the wrangler come with.There a little smaller but you have a regular passenger side and a driver side with the plate light both lights have sidemarkers also.I might end up trying these out I'll post a parts # if I get them.

The cops never said anything about it being lighted.
In Cali, no light = Ticket.

whitebuffalo i put round LEDs on mine. i got em for ~$60 shipped on ebay. i can finds the store if anyone is interested. i did not use a hole saw becasue the doggone saw (not counting the center) was $40. that. so, i measured 13 times and then took a jigsaw to it . you had to come at a couple differnet angles but it wasnt bad at all. i used bullet connectors to connect the lights and drilled a self tapping screw inside for the ground. it was pretty easy, and they look 3000 times better than my old sun rotted busted stockers.


i can take a pic tommorrow if anyone wants to see them.

RottnRudy Ive noticed a truck backing up this morning about 5 a.m. and he had a set of red and a set of white LED's they were very bright.I'm of to autozone soon to see what they have.

amerijeep My license plate doesn't have a light anyway...

I don't have a link. I found them locally at a local place that sells 'em. I have seen them for a lot less on Ebay from time to time too. I've been pricin 'em for a few months, but I really want to get a good idea of what they look like in action before I start cuttin' holes in the jeep.

please share the link

either way $52 is still real cheap. if you won't post the link up then send it to me in a PM. i don't think the LED's include a back up light though. i don't know how you would solve this. i've also heard something about license plate illumination (?)

You can cut it with a variety of different tools. When guys do round LED's they usually use a hole saw to do it. You could use a cut off wheel, a dremmel tool, a plasma cutter (although that would be rather messy) etc...

Bluesman Have you thought about flush mounting the stock tail lights? I was looking at the round ones myself. Later I saw some stock tail lights that had been flush mounted. They looked pretty darn good.
