Recommended Posts

Who needs to spend the dough on an aftermarket taillamp when you can do this:

Used the stock lamp and plate bracket. Under $10 for angle iron and flat iron to do the work. Very solid little setup. Gives me the basics, with that "hard" look.

Whaddya think?

Have you tested it on under full rear compression, to see how the tire clears?

That wiring running to the bulb looks vernerable.

On second thought, your tires not going to clear your set up. Its going to suck it all in.

Well Spud,

I put it to the test last weekend. I have my suspension set on soft and jumped it quite a bit. No contact whatsoever. I imagine it would get sucked in under maximum compression but, I'm 170lbs and keep any air to a minimum (most of the time). It's designed to be removed for extreme offroad. I made it to keep me legal for the street without spending $50 plus. The bulb has been taken care of.

As long as I like it, right?

I think you may be on to something here 😢 The turn signals are definitely out of scale with the tail lamp, however. 😢

Its very simmilar to my setup (before it broke) but mine was all one piece that everything bolted to. the problem was that my license plate would hit the tire on large jumps, even with it laid nearly flat (horizontal) it destroyed my plate so i had a metal plate that i bolted it to for strenght, then that caused the whole eliminator to become eliminated. i had my indicators further back though, they are mounted the the holes in the sub frame just at the begining of th fender.

Thanks for the props guys. I feel it may not be the best or hottest thing out there but, for the money I spent, it's awesome! 😢 BTW Monte, I have my signals on the subframe holes too!
