Are those the motobilt tail lights? How was the install? They look way better than the factory tails. In my opinion these should have been standard.
That they are. Install wasn’t too bad. One of the brackets you have to install on the inside is nearly impossible to do without kid hands or some tool ingenuity. I had to cut a wrench in half and drill a hole in it and attach some string to it incase I dropped it. There’s literally enough space for like 1 maybe 2 fingers lol. You could remove the gas filler door to gain access to the driver side but the passenger side is sheer will power. I also made a new wiring harness for the lights so once it’s all installed it’s just plug it in. Makes for a cleaner install and no cutting or splicing factory wires. if it came down to it the factory lights can be reinstalled without much effort. The fit on the metal parts wasn’t perfect but close enough to get all the bolts in with a little effort and once tight it pulled it all together nicely. I followed this thread for the wiring harness creation. https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/motobilt-tail-light-kit-installed.58466/

I looked at a ton of pictures in this thread when I was deciding on color. Glad I chose granite crystal metallic, and now it’s finally here.

I don’t regret it at all. I’m a fan of dark silver vehicles though. I will say the Black and White 392s look pretty good too. Those would be my second and third choice if I were to do it again. I think the neutral colors go best with the bronze/gold accents.

It was GC or billet silver as my choices, I went with the GC for it's never out of style look and night time stealth abilities. 😎

Thanks man ! I am sticking to granite. The firecracker is too red for my test. Can’t believe that they are not making ocean blue and silver billet anymore. (At least not for 2021 models).

Did you try with the sway bar disconnect as well?
That is disconnected :) So that is as much stuff as it will take, I'm running a 2" spacer in the front and bumpstop to go with it, shocks are stock at the moment so will get more droop but this is 'stuffed'

And the back
