Rear Side Marker

Were there years of cj 7 that did and years that did not come with rear side markers. A friend noticed today that my 86 CJ-7 did not have rear side markers and his CJ-5 did. I went back looking through some old pictures and found my 84 CJ-7 did not have them but my 78 CJ-7 did. Ideas?

Yeah that is right. The rear side marker on the later CJ's is in the tail light.

The switch was in 1981.

Its a common mistake to replace your rear taillights with those generic ones you see at all the autoparts stores, then realize it does not have the built in sidemarker for 81+ CJs. OK... ok... I made that mistake..
