ZJ tail lights

I have literally spent hours online looking for replacement tail lights for my '97 ZJ. I found some OE type replacements for $90 a side. I know I'm not the first person to have this problem. LEDs seem to be attractive, but I can't find any that fit. Am I limited to custom work?

Ebay, there's only oem and one "altezza" style offering.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I actually just found a possibility at
http://spyderauto.com/product.php?id=ALT-YD-JGC93-BK
but I was leaning toward a more "off road" type solution. Something more rugged or utility. I'd be willing to try something custom, but I wouldn't know where to begin.

I never would have thought of Amazon... I did find the, considerably, cheaper OEM tail lights, and I also found a decent set of aftermarket tail lights at http://www.customblvd.com/ProductDet...-BK&click=2298 for very close to the same asking price. They appear to be manufactured by http://spyderauto.com/product.php?id=ALT-YD-JGC93-BK and are then sold wholesale. I've found a $100 spread in price for the same set. They're still not what I was hoping for, but that may be out of my price / time capabilities for the near future. Patience is not one of my stronger virtues lol

I wouldn't have either, until they popped up in a search, I ended up getting my OEM replacement fogs from them.
