New Tail Lights

Unfortunately, my Jeep was hit sometime recently in the rear. Damage wasn't too severe, but one tail light was knocked out of place and has broken mounting tabs.

I could replace it with another stock tail light, but I'm considering making a change if there are any good aftermarket options. Does anyone have any recommendations for new tail lights?

If it was me, I would just get a factory replacement housings and change out the stock bulbs with LED's.

But, here are some options for you - including the LED replacements for the stock tail light bulbs;

Thanks, I think sticking with the stock housings is the best option, and definitely the most affordable. I want to have the LED grid appearance, but it's not worth $250.

Yep, I don't blame you.

Just showing you what's out there.

I should finally get my hands on them in about 3 weeks.

I bought those dark and taillights back in June and put them on. So far so good. No leaks.My factory ones leaked something terrible. I have seen many commanders with leaky tail lights. I do like the look of the factory light .That bright red color they are. But this dark is not too bad. It gets more compliments.
I'm fortunate enough to get compliments every time I stop and get fuel.
