Altenator gave up on me today... got an Oriely's special. And had to take off the roof rack. Factory bolts were way to loose. Need a new way to mount.

Good god. You could've gotten an HD griffin rad for that

Maybe, but it wouldn't be doing me any good because it would still be sitting in my garage, waiting to be installed, having no time to install it myself. I basically traded time for money in this case.

I'm curious though, where did you see a Griffin for less than I paid total for the WJ?

there's a thread somewhere. i pm'd the guy for prices and it's little under $500 for the 4.7 rad, so i assume the i6 would be cheaper. runs something like 30% cooler i think. surious

Just got my new tails in. I'll slap these on in a bit. I know it's going against the norm, but there's quite a few WJs out here with V-tinted tails already and I just wanted to be different. I havent seen anyone with these yet so hell... Might as well be different...

I really like those. Id leave them just the way they are in my opinion. Don't tint them. I've seen a few people with them and they look great. Was it literally plug and play? Post more pics when installed!

So far out of the box they def look plug and play. The reverse bulbs and turn signal bulbs are already in place. They are able to be switched out if you decided to change them or if it burned out. Same twist and pull out as the current stock bulbs come out in the stock tails. Looks like less than a 30min job. I bought the 'smoked' ones bc my WJ is black. It was a thought to slightly darken them. But I'll probably keep them this way...

Id keep them just how they are pictured. Yeah it looks likes you can just plug them right in. I bet they are bright with the led's
