I found a pair of 2" amber LEDs at the local truck stop, they were about $20 for the pair.

the stealth LED kit is awesome...it worked out really well for my tube type fenders by smittybilt and if you have the right type blinker relay you can just mod that and it will flash correctly... LED Tail Light Turn Signal Modification theres the link to modify the blinker relay for 01 and up...

If you notch the three ribs in the JK enclosures just barely wide enough for the grill sheet metal to slip into instead of removing them, and cut three little notches into the grill so the JK turn signal can be inserted at a slight angle, you can make the enclosure twist-lock into place instead of needing to silicone it. That makes it easy to remove the enclosure for when a bulb burns out.

You can see the three notches in this pic. Just make sure to cut them so the enclosure is inserted rotated 15-20 degrees from straight so it will be straight when twist-locked into place.

Or you can try these from modern classic enterprises if you like LED, they have the 3/4 ones and the 4 inch ones with a nice harness to boot...

Thanks for the tip Jerry. Much better than the silicone.

Are there more pics of this jeep? I'm interesting in installing JK lights in my Red Jeep. I plan to remove the stock turn signals from the fender and fill it in.

EDIT: I found them.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ne...1/#post8793360

EDIT 2: I followed the link for the JK Parking Lamp Assembly from Rock Auto. The part numbers are:
TYC Part # 18603400 Part {#55077885AC, CH2530103} Includes Bulb & Socket LEFT
TYC Part # 18603300 Part {#55077884AC, CH2531103} Includes Bulb & Socket RIGHT

$12.02 EA. I just ordered both and with shipping it was $29.24.

I got my turn signals from Rock Auto. Shipping was terribly slow, but I'll blame it on weather and holidays. I used a 3 1/8 hole saw. The driver side light hopped a little while cutting so it was a hair bigger in diameter. The light installed loosely while the light for the passenger side was perfectly tight. I had to add some tape to the housing of the light so that it would install tight. A word of warning, let the saw do the work. Slow and steady. Also I did cut in the slots as Jerry described earlier.

Long term plan is to fill in the stock signal lights on the fender. With that being a factor instead of tube fenders, the blinker wires for the fender flare signal (on the plastic flare) needs to stay attached. This made it very difficult for the stock wire to reach. I ended up cutting another hole in the back of the grill for the wire to fit.

It truly is a plug and play. I started at 4pm and had everything wired up by 7pm. I'll have to wait until warmer weather to do the body work on the fenders.

I tried to center the signals in the space under the headlight.








Here you can see the JK light has a top and bottom. It isn't like a traditional trailer light.


You can see the "belly" at the bottom of the light. It is not uniform. The bottom is thicker.



Made in Taiwan. $12 ea.

Night shot. I can't wait for the summer so I can remove the old signals.

Is there any way to put a chrome bezel (trim) around the JK lights? Is there one available in that size?

Or install euro light guards on both the headlights and parking lights? Like these: http://www.quadratec.com/products/13117_30X_PG.htm

My idea is to match the headlights and parking lights so they don't look like a mod?

Thanks for any help.

It would be easier just to paint the headlight bezels.

I hate painting chrome. It's like painting wood. Seems sinful.
