Looks great!

If you can’t see your reverse lights at night, just flip your tail light lens over and you’ll be good to go.

Haha, I knew something wasn't right when looking at the back but couldn't put my finger on it. Good catch!


Nice ride and enjoy.

Good looking CJ. I like the stance, how much lift and what is the tire size?

Nice CJ-7. I like that color. 2.5” lift?

Love the color, another big fan of the blue shades.

It may not matter to you but the left side light should also have a clear lens bottom to shine light on your license plate at night...don’t mean to be picky.
