Finally got around doing the gloss black SRT Taillamp bezel swamp on my 14' Altitude. I did not even realize how much better it makes the back look! Awesome. PLEASE DO NOT MIND THE DIRTY JEEP. It just rained earlier in the day and I had to get the bezels in since they were sitting on my doorstep from FedEx

That looks so much better! ...Pretty easy swap? My buddy wants to do this to his 14 Overland.

You should take a look at tinting the lower rear reflectors...it would finish off the rear end nicely! Here is a pic I just had mine done last week

Yeah those gloss black bezels are nice. I don't fully understand why Jeep decided on gray bezels on the altitude which doesn't really match anything. The Altitude has gloss black everything else, why in the heck didn't they just use the same gloss black bezels as the SRT? I don't get it.
I just ordered a set of the gloss black bezels for my Summit. Can't wait to get them along with my VLED V3 Triton LED's for my rear brake lights.

How do the inner-tails come off? I removed the 2x 10mm bolts and didn't want to pull too hard as they would not come out easily...I could remove the outters with no problem. Is there a trick to remove the inner tails? Any help is greatly appreciated

Quick question...to install the inner bezels did you remove the inner tail lights? I took the 10mm bolts off the inners and could not get them out. Do you have to remove the rear cargo panel lining? Or do the inner bezels just pop off...any help is appreciated

The bezels are attached to the light via a single screw and 3m tape. To remove the light there are four 10mm bolts to remove per light on the lift gate. You also have to disconnect several plugs. I recommend pulling the gate liner to gain full access.

The 3M tape is pretty sticky - You really need to pull hard and slow. I would pull and used a razor blade to cut, than pulll, than cut some tape, pull, cut, etc.

Vinyl still holding up after 4 months, easy to do.
