2003 round tail light installation?

Hey again all!

Sorry if this post seems redundant but...

I need to know the write-up for installation of round LED tail lights for a 2003 Jeep Wrangler (Sahara).

I've been hearing alot of stuff about an "evap cooler" getting in the way or something to that nature. Please, can anyone help me out with this installation?

Thank you!

You don't have to move the evap canister as long as you get the right lights.

I got lights that instead of having the plug in the middle of the light, it is on the edge so it will fit without moving the canister.

check this out for info http://www.stu-offroad.com/electrical/led1/led-1.htm

I also got the right lights and didn't have to move anything.

In your opinion, do these look like they will fit?

They are not the LED lights. They are off big tractor trailers and buses and stuff but they are the same size as the LED lights.

Thank you!

I cant see the ebay ones from work but I personally
like the Mesa 4x4 LEDs. I have a set that has been sitting
on my shelf for about 4 months, I plan on installing one them
one of these days.

The plug is in the right place to work, but those look like they might be too deep to fit up against the evap canister. the led ones barely had enough room.

The ones I have are trucklite model 44's.

Well I just received my new lights and have all the tools. I am just kind of afraid of getting started.

The lights are 4" standard round LED's and they have a dome"ish" back that is about 1"-2" in width.

Does anyone have round LED's on their 2003-2006 Jeep wrangler who could help me with this installation? I am really worried about the evap canister getting in the way and not being able to finish this project.

Pics would be great!!!
