Corner light and turn signal

Is there a difference in size or shape between the 1993-1996 zj versus my 1997 GCL (5.2L, if that matters)? Trying to find some tinted lights and all I find states it's for a 1993-1996, but they all APPEAR to look the same as mine

The 97 and 98 used a slightly different harness and lamp, so the socket for the harness into the housing is a bit different.

Otherwise, they're externally identical.

Do you mean that the 97 and 98 went to the 3157 blade style lamp and socket? I have the two tab socket on both, my original lenses and my upgraded sockets. I switched over to leds and made my turn signals into led switchbacks with white being illuminated while driving but orange when turning.

Yup, the 97 and 98 got the 3157 from the factory.

Sounds like it won't be an issue for you, but I have a hard time remembering what the stock wiring looks like sometimes . . .

Kg6mov,
Sorry so late for the reply... I never got a notification that you had replied previously. Anyway here is a recent pic of mine since I upgraded the corner and turn signals. I was running the switchback drls in the stock housings before this.

This is with the flashers on. When they go off the white comes back in instantly. I cant figure out how to get a video to upload or I'd post that
