Square tail-lights have come factory on Jeep Wranglers for decades. Some may argue that w/out square tail-lights you have taken away one of the main characteristics that makes a Jeep Wrangler a Jeep Wrangler.
However,we prefer the flush mounted led tail-lights in our rehab’ed Jeeps. It gives them a “tough”military look or something.
Below is our latest Jeep Wrangler project’s before and after adding the flush mounted LED tail-lights.
Let us know which Jeep Wrangler tail-lights you like better!
