RR Tail light Guards
 
Can someone that has the rugged ridge tail light guards on the Jeep take a picture of the back of the Jeep for me? I think that I like these but I can only find pictures that are close up, I would like to see what it looks like when you can see the whole thing.

I have been looking for little, inexpensive things that I can do to make the Jeep mine (you know, besides make the payment) :D

Here's mine, I've got the stainless steel ones - and I like them - there, I said it :D

If you get them, forget the mounting screws that come in the kit.
Get some decent stainless nuts and bolts that will fit through the holes in the tub.
You will have to reach up behind the inner fender guards to tighten the nuts but it is well worth it.
The rear lights 'earth' through the mounting hardware so they have to be good and tight otherwise the lights won't work properly.
It's impossible to get the mounts tightened up properly with the screws they supply in the kit - at least it was for my '97.

Those look good, and are much less expensive than the Mopar covers. Mine are already on the way...

They attach using the existing tailgate bolt holes...they provide you with longer bolts.

Piece of cake.
