are those lenses DOT approved?

here something different like that goes under the magnifying glass at the inspection station

would hate to see you go through the work, only to be turned down at inspection time by some overzealous DMV worker because of something trivial

thanks for the wiring diagram.
and I am going to try to to make the remote hood release.
first i gotta replace the small plastic mounting tabs for the headlights 3 broke during shipping, and i have to figure out how to fix the bezel.
the holes look to be in the same place as any other yj grille.
here are some more pictures
thanks for all your help

That bezel looks just like the one on my 78 C10 pickup.

If not, you should be able to put it back together with some fiberglass and resin.

How can I repair/replace the bezels?

You may have some luck with a plastic welding kit from Harbor Freight or the like. Make the repair then spray paint them. That is such a neat grille, I'm sure you will find a way to make it work. If not, put me in line for the impending auction.

Hey Brooklyn:

1 Repair the cracked bezels with black MarineTex. JBWeld on steroids. Just a little at a time, and use a Dremel and sandpaper to shape it. The MarineTex will fill the gaps and add strength. Then, you can use a little Bondo or glazing putty to mint them out. Prime and paint.

2 While I do not know anything about that grille, and H4 is an H4 so you should be able to splice on the connectors you need. I agree that you should wire the headlights thru relays.

3. Use the regular old Jeep external hood latches. You don't need anything else IF you have good-quality ones and they are installed properly.

4 Your Jeep looks fantastic with that camo paint job and it will look even better with the Israeli grill.
