Hello all! Wanted the gloss black tail light bezels and since I didn't want to try to paint or plastidip them, I just bought some new ones from Just for Jeeps. This write up is more so focused on the removal of the tail lights and the chrome bezel, once you get those off, it's pretty straight forward. To do this you will need trim tools(or something to pry off the lift gate trim), a 10mm socket, and a T-10 torx bit for the small screw on the bezel.
First-Remove the trim panel from the lift gate. I recommend using plastic trim removal tools to avoid scratching the paint. Picked these up at Harbor Freight for 6.99. jeep5.JPG
Remove the lift gate trim, then unplug the wires connected to the two small lights in the gate.
We will skip to the center lights, the outside lights are pretty easy, just remove the two gray plastic rivets on the inside of the tail lights(you will see what I'm talking about when you lift the tail gate). To get the center lights out, you will have to use the 10mm socket to remove the 4 nuts holding the light in. Two on the outside of the gate and two on the inside. These are black in color, to locate the two on the inside of the gate.(First pic-10mm nuts on the inside of the gate)
10mm nuts on the outside of the gate.
Now that you have your tail lights out, you can remove the bezel. First find the T-10 torx screw and remove it.
Then, with steady pressure, pull the bezel away from the tail light. It will be somewhat tough because of the double sided tape but it will come off. After you get the bezel off remove any left over tape and apply the new bezel in its place and secure it with the torx screw. After you have installed all of your new bezels, re-install the tail lights. Now stand back and enjoy your work!
