Changing from round LED tails to factory tails

Hey guys. My PO has the round LED tails installed on my Jeep. I ordered the factory ones because I wanted to put those on, and when they arrived I realized I was probably missing a few more things in order to change back to the factory tails.

When I took apart the round LED's to see what I needed to do I found this:



Obviously, to fit them, they had to be installed like that, so it seems like a part of the tub was just cut, and I would need something there with screw holes to replace them with the factory tails in order for them to stay put.

These holes:



I assume that's how it has to be done. So has anyone ever went back to the oem tails from the round led's? What piece do I need/where can I get it or what do I need to do to complete this installation?

Think you are probably the first to o back to stickers from flush mounts. Basically I would make a patch panel and weld it in. Mark and drill the holes, then tack some nuts the right size to the back side. Bout all I can reallynthink to do to switch it back

I personally have never liked the LED rounds. They don't say Wrangler to me.

How about corner armor. Black, stainless, painted, whatever you like. Then bolt the new lamps to that
