custom taillights

Hi! I`ve just finished welding my home-made HD rear bumper, now I need some suggestions on what tail lights to use [not the large *eep style] Does anyone know of any that could be mounted in the quarter panel corners like pickups
have? or any other suggestions? THANK YOU JIMC

Re: custom taillights

I put my tail lights in the rear tail gate. I used round flush mounts. You can get them at almost any auto parts store, I would get the water proof ones if you wheel in deep water/mud. If I could do it again, I'd get LED's they are a bit more money but worth it, just have to get the check book away from my wife!!! I've never seen tail lights on the sides like pick-ups? But, you never know, you can do just about anything with Zuk's!

Re: custom taillights

Hey man, I saw a sight somewhere recently where he said that he had or was going to use a chevy style tail light out of a 70s/80s full size truck. It could be done, just requires a little work. I personally got some oval lights from walmart ($6 apiece) and have recessed them at about a 45% angle in my rear bumper. 2 per side. Should look good done. You may want to check into Dodge Ramcharger/truck tail lights if you are decided on corner lights. Anything can be done with a little patience and a little fab work.
Good luck

Re: custom taillights

for my rear lights i used a 2" hole saw and cut 3 holes in the bumper to match up with my stock tail lights and mounted my lights behind the bumper. i used silicone to fill the gaps. they look pretty darn cool.
