    Anyone know where to find a tail light lens for the 65Cj5 ?
    Mine has the snap ring that holds the lens in.
    All I can find is one's with 2 screw holes!
    Thank's :)

    A Stimsonite 150 lens fits fine, but the center "bulkseye" isn't correct. The Stimsonite 701 has a "hatched" reflector in the center, and is correct.
    The Phillipean knock-offs (post #2) offers replacement lenses, and they have the reflector center.
    Let use know what you found.

    Newbie just bought a 73 CJ 5. The previous owner replaced the original tail lights with the square ones. I’d like to replace them with the round ones. I assume the LED are much better? Any particular site I should visit? Thanks.

    Walck’s has the round tail lights with a black housing. You can switch the bulb to a LED. You will have to change your flasher to a LED flasher.

    The round rail lights, even without screw-in lenses, had a couple of diameters in the 1960s. Some years ago I replaced my munged up '68 tail lights with rounds one from this page, but they're a little larger than the originals.

    I think I kept the old ones, so some day I might correct that.
