Rob tried to put the export tails on his '07 and have them function just like the export tails should. This proved to be pretty much impossible. Our attempted solution was to use a 2-wire to 3-wire convertor, but it didn't work.not sure what you and rob tackled there but if you remember a while back i wanted to use the 2006 three bulbed tails in my 2010... is that what you guys tried?
Now, the other option is to have the top two bulbs function in unison, mimicing the function of the '07+ Jeeps taillights, just with one more bulb. This is what I did on my '98 to make the taillights "appear" brighter when I flip the turn signals on.
Is this what you're getting at?
