Ok, so the tails were ultra easy and by my estimate... Writing this thread on my phone is going to take longer than it did to install the tails.
Heres the stock lights.

Got a couple of compliments on the way home from another WJ owner and a Rubi owner... Very happy with the look!

Bad news: Right rear window regulator/motor went bad a week ago. Had it propped up waiting until I had the time to replace it. Then today, the left rear regulator/motor went today....

Good news: Autozone priced matched Rock Auto for both parts!!!!! Went from $179.99 each to $80.79 for the left and $82.79 for the right. I got both for less than it would have cost me for one!!! Saved me over $200!!!

Where did you get those tail lights? Since it has led's did you have to put a special flasher in there to keep them from blinking really fast when you use the signals?

I ordered these tail lights of ebay... These have a slight smoke tint to them and ran 180 with shipping. The LEDs are built into the unit and the turn and reverse bulbs come installed already so all you have to do is unplug your stock lights and plug these in... Fasten the 2 screws up an you are good to go. Took about 20 to 25 mins, maybe a little longer just because I took pics...

Even with the tint they are nice and noticable! Co worker tried to get a close picture of thm and blurred up his camera phone a little bit... I heard the regular ones are pretty intense so I didn't want to fry any one behind me...

Had my rear steel brake line along the body rupture last night. I'm in for a fun day today. Thumbs down.

Any advice? I have a dealer next door to me and the prebent line is under 20 bux. I have been doing some reading and it looks like bleeding will be a real PITA.
