Mopar Parts are US$167 delivered, a bit better than the ridiculous $420 with a 4-6 week wait. That is pretty poor by CJD Aust to be truthful.
The latest part numbers are 55079414AF (right) and 55079415AF (left).

HOWEVER, U.S. dealers CANNOT order export parts

Yes, I just realised that when I went back and had another (proper) look at it.

Thanks Milous, I think

So does the US spec (55079420AF) have additional bulbs to the export spec or something?
I note the Aust spec has one tail light/stop light bulb in the upper (red) half and one orange indicator bulb in the lower (clear) half.....

EDIT: I just googled part number 55079414AF and it came up as a tail light assembly for a Dodge as well as a JGC? Also I noticed there is 55079414AF and 55079414AE, what is the difference there?

Thanks!

That's in error, not uncommon for online parts references. There is no way that a Dodge taillamp would fit a Jeep.

"AF" is the latest revision, which started for the 2013 model year. Don't know the difference, usually minor, or even a supplier change.

I think it is the goods so I think I'll grab that..

I don't think you will be able to order it. The parts database that the sites use contains both domestic and export parts, so export parts automatically come up in the listings, yet are not orderable.

This will be interesting. The site let me go through with the order, gave me a receipt, etc with the part number.
I hope this goes through as besides being a ridiculous price over here the 4-6 week wait is just not workable. Effectively the car is deemed unroadworthy with a broken tailight here (technically not allowed on the road). I am definitely not putting it off the road for our Christmas road trip because of a hole in the tailight and CJD Aust not having them here. What would one do if they were rear ended? Off the road for 4-6 weeks because CJD Aust can't get their act together, I don't think so. Sorry, ranting at CJD Aust...

Print a receipt to show to police. You have 28 days to get repairs done, or at least that's the case here, and if you show me that you've done something to get it repaired I wouldn't defect it. Not all cops are as reasonable as me though.

Re: Tail Light Assembly

Could something like this keep you legal until you get the replacement?

Auto Lens Repair 3 Piece Amber, Clear and Red Kit | eBay

Or something like this ...

Re: Tail Light Assembly

I think the main criteria with the broken lens is that you have functioning lightbulbs, and the lenses are of the correct colour.
If you can get some material to cover, no cop would be bothered to pull you over.
