Aries taillight gaurds

I bought these a few months ago when I bought my jeep. Finally got my lift put on yesterday so know I want to put these on. Picked up off ebay. Look brand new, but no instructions or hardware. How or what did you guys use to mount yours? Thanks, chris

You need 4 small screws. Then for 2007 and up go to lowes and buy 4 wall anchors used in dry wall etc.

Screw the anchors through the holes on the bracket then put the screw in. Sorry its sorta hard to explain. I will get pics up later.

I had to do a pretty good bit of hammering to get them to mount right.

Basically that, but the 2007s are a little different.

Not sure how the 07+ differ from the earlier ones, but here are a few pix of mine. Mine came with the hardware needed to mount them. I tweaked the taps a little so the guards would mount closer to the vehicle. Otherwise they stuck out too far for my taste.

You can get them off ebay! Here is the cheapest I could find:

Not sure why they are using a picture of Russ' old Jeep though!

The ones I linked are $50 with free shipping. That's a pretty good deal! I got mine off ebay for $70 a while back. The listing doesn't say what brand they are. I don't know of any other brand that made them though.

Black Horse Off Road also makes these for our vehicle. I found mine on Amazon but you can also get them from their website.
