  • Turn signals

    On the website looking at the 04 Unlimited build it has the CJ turn signals

    http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.as...4&partID=12165

    These appear to be 2 wire and on my 06 its 3 wire any idea how to wire this to work with a 3 wire setup?

    Thanks all

    Because the newer lamp assemblies are palstic, they require a ground wire...hence the 3 wires. On the older CJ assemblies, they are made of metal, and the ground is acheived when you screw them in to the grille.

    I was in the same boat...until I just drilled the holes in my grille, and found out they wouldn't work unless I had at least one screw in the CJ lens assembly

      Ok so just make sure that the 3rd wire(ground) is screwed into the actual light assembly sounds cake

        Nope...you don't even need to use it. The metal on the lamp assembly will ground to the vehicle grille. If you want to, you can use it. Just put a crimp on end with a ring on it, and place it between the grille and the screw hole to ensure it is grounded properly.

          Silly question but since this is a mod I have been wanting to do for awhile....is those sold as a pair or just one. 25 bucks for one lite is a little expensive I think.

            Lotgod is right. THe only wires needed are the hot for the park lamps and the hot for the signal. The housing is the ground on the CJ lamps.

              Why not get a newer 4" LED light....I think some of them even come in a housing similar to the CJ.

                Does anyone know the diameter of these signals?

                  Which ones?? The CJ had a few different ones over the years from the smaller pointy 2"-ish ones to the bigger 4" ones. I think all of the replacement lenses are offered in the 4WD catalog.

                    These ones so we are thinking 2"ish +/- just really curious because if you look at the leds that I have on the grill now are about 2 1/4 spread apart and I want to be able to cover the edges of those holes.
