Removing front TJ fender lights/turn signals

I was digging around & found this old thread.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f260/...gnals-1139065/

I like the look of the smooth fenders & CJ-style lights on the grill.

Who else has done this mod? Did you do it like this or did you do it another way?

I believe you'll find most welded it.

I figure so but with all the creative people here, it's probably been done in various ways.

Also, post pics!!

There are other ways to do it if you're not litteraly trying to mimic a CJ. Mine will have 2" grommet mount LEDs when I get around to it. I'm just focusing on suspension and brakes before I do this.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

How do you plan on deleting the holes in the fender?

My fenders are cut, the turn signal relo is very easy. I went with JK turn signals, $8.00 each on amazon. You remove the headlights and pop a hole in the grill with a 3 1/4" hole saw and trim until they fit tightly. Put a bead of rtv around the light case before I slid them in. They are super solid and the best part is the TJ light sockets fit the JK signal housing so no need to cut any wires.

Thanks. Yours looks good.

I don't plan on cutting my fenders. Was wondering about closing up the hole.

I would think welding in a plate or using a bucket of bondo are your two choices.

I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone do the relocation and keep the stock fenders.

I used the JK signals too.....but went with new fenders.
