Re: tail lights

Here ya go Baron....follow these instructions, to the letter, and you'll be set!

So this is how you do it...or how I did it..

1 - Take the tail light off...and diconnect the harness...
2 - You'll need one of those round drill bits with the teeth on it...dunno what its technical name is...1 1/4"...then put it directly in the middle of missing socket...and drill...it'll drill a perfect hole...
3 - They socket can be turned into the hole without any other drilling...you have to play with it a little tho..
4 - Connecting the wires was trail and error...if you want the lower lights to work as tail and stop lights...you'll need a socket with 3 wires...a ground...minor..and major wire...
5 - Connect the wires from the sockets to these wires on the harness: ground to solid black, minor to black with yellow stripe, and major to white...
6 - Remember to test the bulbs before you put electrical tape on, as well as before you put them in tails, and then again when you put the tails on the Jeep...just to be sure...once everything is on...its not fun to take it back off again...lol!

I did notice..when drilling the holes for the sockets...that the lower lights have conncections under the plastic seal...the same metal connection that the other sockets uses...it just doesn't have the "lip" I guess you can call it...kinda weird that they would do that...but hey...so if you decide to it the way I did...don't be shocked/scared if you drill into those metal plates...

And thats it!! Enjoy being part of the Quad Squad!!

Heres the results:

Re: tail lights

This might be a dumb question but what socket are you guys using? 1157,1156 etc? Id like to stick with the same stock size 3157 to make it easier on bulbs but the dont have any wires coming off them. Any help would be appreciated as I play on doing this as soon as I get a reply. Thanks!

Re: tail lights

Well I answered my own question and did the mod today. Found nice sockets at napa model #LS6510 which are 3157 sockets. I drilled a 1 1/8" hole (as i have a whole kit from 1/2" to 4" but no 1 1/4" haha) They snap in and fit like a glove! I couldnt be happier with the fitment.
