I'm with Jerry too.

Intentionally diminishing the effectiveness of your lights is a stupid thing to do. As for the bashing, it doesn't occur with all modification questions, only the dumb ones. Just because it's not yet illegal, doesn't mean that it's not a stupid thing to do.

It's not like this modification will do anything to improve the performance of your vehicle; in fact it will have the opposite affect on some very important safety equipment.

But, if looking cool is the most important thing for you, don't go about it half-assed. Be a real man and cover them completely with three coats of glossy black house paint!

Damn man calm down. What's wrong with u? Just cause YOU don't like it, doesn't mean it's stupid. Bashing is only with mods that aren't popular like the one at hand. Saying smoking taillights is half assed because they're not completely black is like saying, don't half *** ur lift, be a real man and lift it 30ft. What kind of mods do YOU like? I bet there's someone who thinks those are stupid and that ur half assing it too.

This is like the black vs chrome debate...everyone has an opinion based on their likes/dislikes/needs. it's funny no one asked what your driving needs were (unless u overlooked)...this could be a purely trailered show vehicle (plenty of trail wranglers/race heeps don't have headlights/tailights...the track near me only requires a single red running light)...

Since the project isn't 100% related to the jeep you may want to check out the forums for other customized vehicles (vw, Honda, etc) for some ideas and best paint/film brands. I don't recall seeing a specific lens for Cherokees in my travels other than the eBay ones.

Most paints are applied inside the lens, most films are applied outside the lens. A good tint shop can sell you the film. Whichever you decide on...if you are planning to drive it you can keep it legal (check your state) by etching a logo into the black out. For spray you'd put the logo on with tape/film...spray then remove for film has the shop laser cut the logo. When the light is lit the logo will be visible.
