    I'm going with the 4 inch LED rounds out back, but as far as turn signals and back up lights go, I'm at a loss. Whatever I do I have to mod not only the tub but the armor as well.

    I'm curious to see your tail light set ups, so show us what you did and if hindsight was 20/20 would you do something different?

    1958 Chevy Impala taillights were on my '56 CJ5 when I bought it in 1970. I replaced the rusted out panels and reused the lights.

    Do the LED lights work with the original wiring / turn signal set up?

    Here's how mine sits now. Originally I tried to match the factory holes, but they were too low and too inward. So I had to weld the pieces back in and move them upward and more center on the rear end.
