Yesterday I went looking for these lights, and I could only find the passenger side. But I did find a kit at Kragen for about $60. Both lamps are in there, plus a bunch of wire and a cheapo license plate bracket for mounting on a trailer. The wire at least I can use elsewhere. The package looks like this, and I took a closeup of the part number.









I wired it up and cut it just like Cobra Jeep did, except I pulled some wire into the lamp and used the crimp connectors that they provided. Then I used RTV to hold them in place. Of course then I had to get the Stant EL-12 flasher afterwards. Man they work good. I especially like the License plate light.

i just barely did this tonight with the dual light package shown above. those particular lights are better then the ones that were originally used because the circuit board is covered with some seriously heavy duty epoxy of some sort so they are totally water tight. FYI those lights require a little bit different modification then originally specified but all in all they are awesome, kudos to you cobra jeep for figuring out how to do this first!

The ones I used are the same way. The circuit board is covered in the epoxy and it water tight.

Just for comparison, here is my setup using the stock-style LED lights. These have LED reverse lights and plate LED lights as well.






These I got from Pep Boys, $60 a piece. Nice job, Cobra Jeep, got the same look as I have, but for alot cheaper,

So, sorry to resurrect such an old thread, but I actually saw these lights at kmart yesterday and was considering the same thing. Another thought though, what about actually using these lamps with the housing and everything and just trading them out for the old jeep lights for a different housing look? Are the mounting bolts anywhere close? And how hard is the wiring.

I keep seeing mention of the flasher, what is that actually for? Is it just so it doesn't flash so quickly or do you HAVE to have it for your turn signals to work?

I actually have an LJ, but I figure the taillights haven't changed in 20 years so there can't be much difference.

Well if you were to swap the whole housing and everything you would lose the backup lights. Also the housing were kinda thin and flimsy. Dont know if they would hold up as good as the factory housings.
But AFAIK, you are required by law to have backup lights. But I guess if you used some cheap fog lights mounted on the rear somewhere that could probably be ok.

They are holding up great, no problems. I have actually added to them. I added some smaller lights to the side to make them flash with the signals. The ones that came with the lights I used only came on when the running lights were on, they didnt flash with the signal. Now the side maker part of the tail lights come on with the brakes and flash with the signals.
