Pretty sure you can also have whatever company do it, most offer the LED hole as an option.

Talked to Jeff. Rokmen's full corners come with the 4.5" tail light holes already cut. They have optional plugs if you have stock tails. So I'm set! Here's a montage video from this weekend of my jeeps first outing.

Got the ORFab cage ordered. Then give Rokmen another call for the front upper and lower CAs and full corners. Then MCE fenders and Currie Antirock. That should do.it for a while haha.

Problem: As the weather gets cooler I am going to want to wheel with doors on, but the stock mirrors are imovable. Stuck in the outward position even a pipe wrench couldn't get them to turn in. As huge as these mirrors are it is inevitable that they would get ripped off on the first tree to get in the way, likely doing considerable damage to my half doors as well.

Solution: Utilize my Harley mirrors somehow and remove for wheeling. Except with the doors on I lose the hinge mounting points. So I went to Lowes and bought some 1/2" round steel tube, same diameter as the door hinge. Cut two pieces 1 1/4" long and bevel ground the edges.
I removed the stock mirrors, only breaking one t25 in the process. The tube pieces will be welded on in the area where the stock mirrors were by a guy in our club. Once done a shot of OD green and Voila! Easy removable Harley mirrors all year long with or without doors!

If you wanted to be able to put your stock mirrors back on as an option you could weld the tube to a small pice of flat stock and drill a hole in the flat piece and bolt it on to the existing bracket using one of the torx bolts. Then remove the entire homemade bracket and reinstall the stock mirrors.

Had to trim a little plastic off the door surrounds so they would clear the grab handles. Its no weld in full cage but with the behind the dash steel backing plate and cage down plate sandwiching the dash and the floor tie in bolting to the underside of the Rokmen rocker guards i feel pretty confident this cage would hold up well in a roll over. Hope i never have to test it. Also painted the rear of the cage flat black to go with the nice black powder coat ORF puts on.
