Tail Light Assembly

Can anyone confirm that the US spec tail light assembly is identical to the Australian spec? I assume it is however I really don't want to bring something over and find it is different. Just need to be 100% sure.
I can source one via Just for Jeeps for around $215 delivered vs $395 locally.

Yes, some tool smashed the corner tail light assembly in the shopping centre carpark (no other damage). Obviously they didn't leave a note so we are left with the bill..

Any help would be appreciated!

Nope. Their taillight doubles as an indicator (red flashes brighter) and where our indicator is they have another reverse light.

If you email Peter he can probably get you an export one for cheap.

Maybe have a look at the back of the assembly (part that touches car). It should be embossed into the back plastic moulding.

Yes we are very "special" here in Aus. And we wonder why our cars are more expensive!!!!

Re: Tail Light Assembly

Wreckers are an option if I could actually track one down.
I thought I would get a second price on the part locally and was quoted $421 with a 4-6 week wait because it is "ex USA" I can source parts through Mopar in around a week or two for a lot lot less. I am just waiting on a reply re the export assembly. Are we sure the assembly is actually different or is it generic with multiple fitments for US and export? I have emailed Mopar Parts and Just for Jeeps, I will see what they reply.

I'm sure if your bulbs and connectors are still good you could just twist them out of your current one and twist them into a US taillight. The wiring and bulbs is all that would be different, the lense and assembly is the same.

It is just a hole in the lens (like some tool stuck a broom stick through it), the bulbs, connections, etc are OK. I just wasn't sure when mentioned that the US spec it may not have the orange indicator lens inside it... hmmm. 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.
