I wired the side marker lights up today, they are really bright!

They are wired only to the park light circuit, so they do not flash with the turn signals.




Here's the run-down on the wire colors on my '91 YJ's tail lights.

In the factory tub wiring harness

Left side
gray/black = brake & turn
blue/red = park lights
dark green/brown = reverse lights

Right side
gray/red = brake & turn
blue/red = park lights
dark green/brown = reverse lights

Hmmm - could you dim them if you wanted - to put them more in line with the rear lights in terms of brightness?

Fair enough - I like the way they look centered on the 4" ones. I have some cutting to do when I make it back home for Xmas. I got the integrated STT/Reverse LEDs - I'll post a few pics when its all said and done.

Got these installed and wired up - I like how they turned out. My side markers are pretty bright like some of the other peoples on here, but it's fine:

Sure are...got them from here:

Hose Clamps, LED Truck Lights, Heavy Duty Truck Parts, Wire Loom, Trailer Parts, Fuel Warmers, part no MX-M85429R (50.79 ea). If you go this route, be sure to get 2 of the 3 pin harnesses per light. I only got one for each light and ended up having to make my own harnesses for the other two. It's not that difficult, just time consuming and a little less clean of an installation.

I really like them though, and they are a cheaper solution than the other intregrated SST/R product out there (although you have to drill another hole for the side marker lights).

Max designed a self destruct mode. Release the strap and it all falls apart In case of emergency

I have a similar setup on my Jeep. Except mine is hooked up to the ignition, turn the key and it self destructs!

SO FAR

It corrects a minor desigh flaw on Jeeps. I'm going to weld tubing on that same spot in my Jeep for seat support.

*I want a half hardtop for my Jeep.

*I'm starting to love my '90 Jeep.

*My Jeep does not get me laid, but who cares.

I like them too. They are (were, really) sold through Bestop brand products and the name "Rough Rider" is imprinted on the lid. I purchased them a long time ago from the closeout section of Quadratec. They are no longer available from Bestop, so finding them is next to impossible.

If you hurry to Collins Brothers Jeep, they did have some listed in their "Closeout" section, under the "Bestop" icon.

You can see the gray ones in my wife's '93 YJ here.


And more of my '91 YJ




Obligatory JF sticker picture.....


BTW, the ratchet strap is the product of the domino effect.
1) Driving months at a time with no top sun-dries seat which = crack in seat
2) Crack in seat develops into rip
3) Rip in seat allows rain (no top, remember?) to soak into seat foam like a sponge
4) Water-soaked seat foam rusts out seat frame
5) Fat guy (me) sits in seat with rusty frame & it "reclines" beyond the original design concept
6) Ratchet strap holds seat back in place
