Gloss Black Tail lamp Bezel Swap

Finally got around doing the gloss black SRT Taillamp bezel swamp on my 14' Altitude. I did not even realize how much better it makes the back look! Awesome. PLEASE DO NOT MIND THE DIRTY JEEP. It just rained earlier in the day and I had to get the bezels in since they were sitting on my doorstep from FedEx

Re: Gloss Black Tail lamp Bezel Swap

That looks so much better! ...Pretty easy swap? My buddy wants to do this to his 14 Overland.

You should take a look at tinting the lower rear reflectors...it would finish off the rear end nicely! Here is a pic I just had mine done last week

Simple swap. Here is a link to easy instructions on removing the lamps:

Jeep Grand Cherokee Tail Light Bulbs Replacement Guide - 2011 To 2016 Model Years - Picture Illustrated Automotive Maintenance DIY Instructions

The only thing missing is pulling the lamp from the tailgate. You need a 10mm socket wrench and each lamp has 4 10mm posts.

Easy Peasy!

Re: Gloss Black Tail lamp Bezel Swap

Yeah those gloss black bezels are nice. I don't fully understand why Jeep decided on gray bezels on the altitude which doesn't really match anything. The Altitude has gloss black everything else, why in the heck didn't they just use the same gloss black bezels as the SRT? I don't get it.
I just ordered a set of the gloss black bezels for my Summit. Can't wait to get them along with my VLED V3 Triton LED's for my rear brake lights.

Re: Gloss Black Tail lamp Bezel Swap

How do the inner-tails come off? I removed the 2x 10mm bolts and didn't want to pull too hard as they would not come out easily...I could remove the outters with no problem. Is there a trick to remove the inner tails? Any help is greatly appreciated
