YJ Rear Round Tail Lights?

I've seen them... Is there a kit that someone makes to get the REAR (Not the front, I know that thread is floating around) tail lights into that recessed round look like the old CJ's?

I think what you're talking about is people who do the LED taillight mod. Most of those are round and recessed. All ya do is buy the replacement taillights, cut the tub to accept the recessed light, wire it up, and mount it.

Here's a writeup ---> http://www.*******.com/tech_articles/led/led.html

I got my LEDs from Harbor Freight for $12 each, but if you don't have to have LEDs, Wal-Mart has regular incandesent ones for $6 to $7 each.

oval 62 LED lights are where it's at! though i don't think they look that great without a comp cut personally....

Walmart has something incandescent that has the grommits and will flush mount? I was actually not wanting the LED's for a more classic look.
