Looks good. Now all you need are side marker lights and a license plate light and your Jeep will be street legal again. Do not be surprised if a cop is either bored or having a bad day and decides to pull you over and write you a ticket.

OK, I see the license plate light now.

The OEM tail light assembly had a red lens built into the outside edge. The lens allowed your tail lights and turn signals to be seen from the rear and from the side of the vehicle. Thats why every car on the road has some sort of wrap around tail light or something like what you removed. It is an easy fix though. You can buy 2" (or 2 1/2", I can't remember) lights and grommets like what you installed. Just need another hole saw and do the same in the side of the tub. If where you bought your 4" LEDs doesn't carry the 2", go to any larger truck stop (Petro, Flying J, T/A, Pilot, etc) and they should stock what you need.

South carolina is very lenient on car laws. Also there is no inspection here. Pretty much if u have one brake light, a headlight, and a mirror your good to go
