Replaced the stock tail lights with the JW Speaker 279 LEDs - LOVE them but I cannot get any of the brush guards (have 3 different sets from 3 different manufactures - could not make up my mind on what style I liked) that were installed on the stock lights to fit.

All of the screws that hold the light together (outside screws that DON'T go into body) are too short.

The JWS website states that you need : #8-16 x 2 ¼” or longer screws (LONGER definitely)

I emailed JW Speaker and they advised me that they were not aware of any sources for screws of this type

THESE : http://www.homedepot.com/p/Crown-Bolt-8-16-x-2-1-4-in-Internal-Hex-Flat-Head-Cap-Screws-2-Pack-34168/203575459 DO NOT WORK - save your time and money.

Has anyone been able to accomplish the installation of brush guards on JWS taillights? If so how please.

Thx

I used Rugged Ridge Elite tail light guards. They come with all the necessary hardware. These guards were designed to work with the JW's. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
