Tom,

I really like your write and the look of these lights. :bicept: I know Rollbar will be interested in reading the information on the 24 volt to 12 volt setup how simple it was as he is in the mist of doing this now to his M170 build up.

Answer a few for me please. :drive:

How much room or should I say, how tight was the fit to work with on the passenger side (as this is the side that get's real tight) with the entire bucket :question:

The entire setup, housing , light and reflector are really heavy duty. :jump8:

The template, I gather is your creation. :give: Is it available for anyone to use :lol:

The way you tied in the electrical to the harness is a very practical and has a clean look. :amazed:
I belong to an Anal Club and I will be sending you an application. :insane: :dance1:

What can I say, the finish look is outstanding

Can you elaborate a bit more on the part numbers, cost, etc.....

One thing Jeepers should keep in mind when they consider flush tail lights is that newer Jeeps have an emissions canister behind the passenger side tail light as stated in the article. I know a few Jeepers that didn't consider that until it was to late.

Hey Safari, you bring up a good point. Can this be moved somewhere else without triggering all these check engine lights? Can we say... who needs a stinking emissions canister and toss it without rough idle :question:

Jims, thanks for the comments, here some answers to your questions.

1. Fitting to passanger side....if you have a 2003 or newer the gas evaporator is located in the that corner and it will have to be relocated to fit the light buck. this is due to the depth the light is set back in the body. Cutting around the hinge is not to hard just have to take yoiur time. Also so the light bucket has to to trimmed to fit arouind the hinges.

2. The Template, if anyone would like a copy, I would be happy to send it to them. Just have them call me 386-561-0391.

3. Part # I don't know but just call John Booth He has the lights. The pricing can also be recieved from John. His # is 1-850-510-1405

Jim, on the applacation you mentioned. My wife will fill in all the details....... :question:
