    I bought two repro lights, they have the license lens. Maybe could swap over the lens. Assuming you are hot to keep the originals.

    I would go with repro if they were dimensionally the same. The ones I have seen have a different, usually smaller, LP light and for some reason I really want to keep the taillights looking stock.

    I'm with you on the old school stock taillights. And as far away as i can from the taillights on the new 2019 wranglers. Not sure why but just not for me.

    He had a lot of the earlier Hall Tail Lamp lens and even some NOS complete assemblies but none of the later like above.

    If any one is going to the Willys Picnic in a few weeks they may have a large swap as well. The Great Willys Picnic

    I had the same issue. But mine wasn't missing, just cracked up pretty bad (someone backed into a snow bank and crushed It). I couldn't find anything after a good search, so I ended up taking all the pieces and gluing back together. That said, I have a handful of good repop lenses if you need. Three hole and fits original bucket/housing.

    Thanks. I have plenty of the red lenses. The clear one seems to be the elusive one.

    I think there was a post about these a few months back and someone picked up a set. AFAIK the results were positive. I don't have the window on my lights at all and was considering purchasing these so I would have a license plate light. Not the highest priority for me at this time.

    Received a pair of these today. They do look pretty close to the originals. Both lights have the clear window in them though (two left lights). I also haven't opened them up to see what is holding the clear lens in place. I may just snag the lens to use in my originals.
