Here's a little write up for all the WJ guys that wants to join the Quad Squad! LOL....follow the instructions, and you'll have yourself some sweet quad tails. :thumbsup:

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

1 - Take the tail light out...and disconnect the harness...
2 - You'll need one a whole saw of 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..otherwise you can use a file to file out the notches.
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 out again...lol!

I did notice..when drilling the holes for the sockets...that the lower lights have connections 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...


Here are the results:











Totally worth the little effort, materials, and time spent!!! :D

I have the same Jeep as yours. I think the 04' Jeep GC have a different color wires than the 99-03. Mon helped do mine. I could take pics for you.
Hey Paul if you can, could you taking photos of the wiring? Also if anybody in NY wants to help me out, let me know. I haven't bought any of the stuff yet but let me know.

Well once again this Quad Tail light mod has hit another person. Which is a good friend of mine. His name is Johnathan. I told him about the site but I don't this he has responded yet. This was done several months ago and I just found the pictures. Mon_21 helped us once again. Thank a lot man.

Here's the process it took to complete the Quad Tail Light Theory.














AND THIS IS THE FINAL RESULT!!!!!

Finally got them done, I'm in the club. Here is a crappy phone photo (They are actually brighter in person). Believe me Mario will have much better photos of it. I love this look.



So lets get a list started, theres definitly less than 20 people who have it

Congrats Chuck............welcome to Quad Squad!
Thank you sir. Man this is just the perfect look though, I always thought the lighting in the rear was lacking and this is the perfect addition, it cuts the tail perfectly and its good for visibility. Thanks Hannes for posting this up and special thanks to Paul, Mario, and Mon for helping Paul who helped me haha.
