Rear hatch Tail light mod

I've seen a picture if an xj that had its tail lights removed and had euro style circle taillights installed in the rear hatch itself. I've searched through the forums an on google and can't find it. Anyone know if this is a conversion hatch or had any pictures of this type of mod? I wanna do it but need a base.

Yippy Ki yay!

Get the round led lights that are used on a Wrangler. Get a hole saw and carefully cut them out. Install lights and wire them in. couple that I found on Ebay

Yessssss... Just what I'm looking for. Bit too pricy either. Anyone have a pic if one that's installed?

Why the hell would you do this, of course, unless you are comp cutting it.

You probably saw Texsun's rig. Look it up HERE. He did it that way not so much by choice but because he cut everything behind the rear wheels away.

The comp cut looks good, I would definitely keep it as an option. Most of the mountain trails I go through need minimal clearance and less plastic

My current cut and fold job. I want more clearance, at full flex I'm at about a 1/2 inch space one the front and rear

Cool. Now bump stop it properly so you can stay out of your fenders and more importantly, make your suspension work.
