Did you try unscrewing the two small philips screws on the edge of the fender? Open the tail gate and you'll see two small Philips screws that have no reason to be there, other than to hold the tail light cover.....I believe.

Yea, there's 4 screw's total. One on the outside and near the fender, and one inside the tailgate area. They're not philips though, they're torque (as Comanche's tend to have everything screwed in by torque screws ), unless of course somebody changed them all out. Stock they came with torque screws...but anyway, that's all that holds them in.

They are not called torque screws they are called torx screws.

The previous owner of my MJ used a phillips head on my torx screws. I believe they are now called "minor project screws" because I have a blub needs replacing...
