@carolinajeepman i am definitely interested in a set once you have this situation figured out. Mine look really faded and I'm rebuilding my 88 and would hate to stick on old looking tail lights. If these turn out as clean as your prototype, count me in!


Supposedly key parts is supposed to be making just the lenses but with no ETA. Shoot Carolina a PM about them and see what he says. Last I talked to him, he was busy with life and what not.

Sounds good! They will be exact replicas and should look like NOS lights. I am in the middle of a move/house search right now so had to take a break, but will be back at it by the spring with a nice new workshop (not settling this time) which will make this so much easier to work. The house I just sold had such a small garage which made it rough as you can imagine.

@Greentoy I've been trying to get a 3D printed set of brackets to fit JK tail lights into the MJ. You solution looks clean but regrettably requires the sacrifice of a set of comanche lights, ouch. Not a bad thing to try if they're already in rough shape.

 

 

 

 

KoopaKid,

Yeah, mine were both broken and covered in tape when I got the truck, so I didn't have anything to lose.

I see KeyParts have their MJ taillight lenses in the testing phase now. Depending on the price, I'll probably pick up a set to put on my worst set of taillights. If I do that, I will create a thread on it.

Where would one follow to see what KeyParts is up to?

For some reason it won’t let me copy the link. Here is a screenshot. No pricing or date to release yet.

Looking good. Only thing that looks off to me is the reverse light. I notice some red peaking though in that area. @Dzimm I see an opportunity for the housings to be reproduced!
