Tail light

Does anyone have tail light lens. Right side. My son backed into a trash can and cracked the lens. The dealer wants $70 plus for the whole assembly. Come on it has four screws, you cant just buy a lens?!

you havent tried to take it off have you?
the lens is glued to the housing so you cant do just the lens anymore
gotta do the whole thing,
as for the 4 screws, well the 2 inboard ones hold the light assembly on, and the 2 outboard ones just hold a plastic wedge to the back so it contours to the corner

occasionally you can find a deal on here when someone does corner armor and swaps to leds
I snagged a pr for $50 awhile back after an unfortunate incident with a large granite wall in a stream bed at the old katemcy rocks....

Wow really. New is nice but sometimes I miss the simplicity of my CJ7.
Thanks for the input!

You can't buy just the lens. It's actually part of the whole assemby. Take it off and you will see what I mean. the screws that you see on the lens go into the body of the Jeep. Go to a junk yard and buy one used. They usually go for $35.

yeah, unfortunately the days of stopping by tractor supply and picking up a trailer light lens for $5 to fix your jeep lights are over
