Re: custom lights

I had them on my 98 xj before i parted it out. I love those tail lights. I used Halogen reverse bulbs and RED LED bulbs, the style of LED bulb that are completely wrapped in LEDs.



Flexing on my broken front steps.


My friends Gay tail lights that started to fog after a year. (still had the 20 day plates on my wk in that pic)

Re: custom lights

Rob, I think V-LEDS would work nice on those tailo lights from eBay or the stock ones.
Go to v-leds.com and check them out. They also have some square LED boards that might be able to get retrofited into those housings if you bake them and open them.
There's other cheaper alternatives to v-leds out there but the output and quality of the v-leds is just second to none .

Re: custom lights

Very nice, Im still thinkin of doin a 4.5" lift for now n do 33x12.50x15 mud rovers or discoverers stt. Im doin the same rear tire carrier from detours, and the front is gonna be from hanson along with the fender flares. Jst got to look for a d44 rear and put on the tran drop skid. My goal is to do a 6.5" lift and try to shoe horn 35s under the body. I still got a few more goodies i still have to get at a local junk yard by my girls house like factory skid plates from an older cherokee. Ill post some pics soon of the lights when i get them to. Thanks Kyle for the boost in insparation.
