cj 1947 Tail Lights Tj Wrangler

The vendor says these won't work on my TJ.

Can anyone tell me why?

How can I make them work? I really want to have that style. It is set up for a single bulb I think so Would it have all the same functionality that the 2 bulb system has on the Wrangler?

If not can a modification be made so that it will?

I'm sure you can make them work, they just won't plug in. If you meter your TJ's wiring, I'm sure you could splice those lights in to make them work.

I keep getting notification that this thread has a new post but every time I check there is nothing new.

I was hoping someone could axtually share their experience and tell me how they did it. Or just tell me how to.

There is no reverse light in those. You could make them work, just make sure they have 12 volt bulbs in them.

yes,they will work with no problem..in fact you can buy similar lights at walmart..just wire your brake/turn signal to the element that lights up the brightest,your tail light to the dim element and most likely it grounds through the mounting bolt..the mounting holes won't be the same as your present lights probably

I could be wrong, but if you combine the blinker and brake wires together at the light, the light would work fine, but you would probably have your blinkers going every time you hit your brakes and vise versa. The vehicle's relay's may isolate the circuits for you; you could try it and see what happens, if it doesn't work right, you may need to wire in additional relays to isolate the circuits for you.

it is already isolated..just check your wires where they connect to the tail light..turn your left turn signal on and see which wire has the voltage coming on and off..connect that wire to the bright element on the new light..then with the turn signal off,turn the headlights on..the wire that gets voltage should connect to the new tail lights dimmer element...do the same thing for the right side....mount them making sure you have a small bare area on the backside of the fender where the mounting nut goes so that you get a good ground...
