    Can anyone tell me the size hole for a beehive style parking light (I think about 1 1/2”) and if possible how far below the headlight it is. P O enlarged hole for newer lights would like to go back. Any help would be appreciated.

    These measurements will get you on or within an imperceptible fraction of the correct placement--

    1) On my 1967 CJ5 the hole size is 1-1/2".
    2) To position the hole--if you measure straight over 2-1/2" from center of hole to bumping against outer edge of the inside of the grille.
    3) Then it's 2-5/8" down from the bottom of the non-removable/spot welded? (inside the grille) headlight mounting flange to the center of the parking light hole.
    4) The holes in the grille, just outside of the 1-1/2" hole, which receive the back of the parking light bolts are oriented vertically on a in place/mounted grille.
