Flush Mount LED Tail lights

I want to put flush 4" round LED tail lights on a JK. Has anyone done this yet without the extra body armor. I've seen it a lot on YJs and TJs. If anyone has doen this and has pictures or has a write up that would be greatly appreciated.

The lights on the JK are set more to the outside corners and the openings are larger than the 4" L.E.D 's that would be replacing them. That is why you will need the corner guards that have the provision for a 4" light.

These are probably as cheap as you can get Warrior products 99.99

The problem I had was the angle and curve of the Jk corners don't really let flush mounting lights to be done easy.

I used AEV builders corners.

Thanks. I did them because this is my wife's jeep and off road she has ripped the tail lamps off a few time as well as the license plate. Theses are well protected, look cool and really bight. They also don't really burnout so that's nice.
Here's more on the lights,

Looks great does it widen the back end at all or just change the angle to allow format size light
