so I pulled the side marker bulb and now I just bleed the OEM projector light from the top corner of the headlight (where the fender comes down and sort of molds to the headlight) even if the black ops covers wrapped further in at the top it would not solve the issue, they would have to wrap in and then wrap up. so to fix that bleed I'll pull the headlights and use some black electric tape, prob a 10 minute job since I don't have my front bumper on yet so pulling the headlights is still super easy. Thanks VMan for the tip, I would have never noticed until I was out at night with my lights on, not sure if it would even bother me but I'll cover it up now just for the hell of it
no prob bud. yea i ended up temporarily shimmying fender over a bit so i could add electric tape around light in order to "meet" the signal cover

As far as the bleed through at night I don't think even with the new 05-07 ones wrapped even more than the 08-10's we will end up see some light escaping from the edges really no way around it. I think one of the best cures is the electrical tape around the outside of the housing.
x2, the escaping light is unavoidable, and when looking at side of jeeps, the small "crack" of light you see between fender and cover, or bottom of cover and bumper, isn't really that big of a deal
the electric tape solved the "line of light" that was escaping and being projected perpendicular to the front of my jeep
