4. Motobilt Jeep JL Round Taillight Conversion Kit
Motobilt, the experts in parts for Jeeps and other off-road vehicles, has developed the first aftermarket steel replacement taillight for the Jeep JL Wrangler (2-door and 4-door). The multi-part assembly allows you to paint the pieces in a color combination that compliments the theme of your Jeep build. This kit also lets you choose between two different types of round tail lights: Surface Mounted or Grommet style. The problem with the factory taillights when off-roading is that they extend up to 2 1/2 inches out from the Jeep JL body. This puts them in a vulnerable position to trail damage as they come in contact with trees and rocks. Motobilt came up with a solution to remove the large factory plastic taillight housing and replace it with a tighter-fitting steel alternative. This setup allows obstructions on the trails to merely slide down the side of the body and not “hook” onto the plastic taillight housing. Not only does this conversion kit solve the big extended issue but it also changes up the styling on your Jeep to make it stand out.
- Allows for surface mount or grommet style tail lights (not included)
- Includes two different mounting plates to use with either style of lights
- Two 3/4″ round openings for LED grommet style side marker trailer lights (sold separately)
- Made from heavy-duty 14 gauge steel construction for the ultimate durability
