    This Rugged Ridge rear Euro taillight guard kit in black is for those of you that have a 1987 to 2006 either YJ or TJ, that are looking to change up the rear of your Jeep and also add some protection. Now, this is going to protect your otherwise fairly fragile plastic taillight, however, if you do get a good shot to this protector, it, instead of breaking your taillight, is going to transfer all of that impact into the tub, which can cause a bit of a more expensive repair. So, it's really up to you whether you want to use these for protection or if you're just installing these for the look. These are going to give you much more of that safari styling that a lot of you guys are after. This is going to be something that installs very easily onto your Jeep, definitely a one-out-of-three wrench installation here. This is going to bolt directly on without the need to drill, cut, or otherwise modify your Jeep. As far as the construction goes, this is going to be a steel taillight guard. This is going to be a round stock steel that's bent here. You have some flat stock on the back. These do have a foam pad that is pre-applied to the backside of this, and that's going to keep the taillight guard from chafing the factory paint when you do have this installed. As you can see here, this has a cutout for your wiring, so you don't even need to unclip your wiring harness. All you'll need to do is unbolt that taillight and bolt everything back up with your new hardware. So, like I said, definitely a one-out-of-three wrench install. To get this bolted up, you're going to have to remove the four screws on the taillight lens. Once you remove those, you'll have access to the three screws that actually bolt the taillight housing to the tub. You'll remove those. Then, you can slide the taillight guard right over top and reattach everything using the new longer hardware that's included in the box. These taillight guards are going to run you right around $35 dollars, which I do think is going to be a pretty good deal for what you're getting here. These things are well built, they look good, they're going to do exactly what you would expect them to do, so I don't see why you'd spend more. This is going to be a good deal. So, if you're looking to install a set of taillight guards onto your YJ or TJ, I definitely recommend taking a look at this option from Rugged Ridge, and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Construction. The Rugged Ridge Euro style taillights are made from a high grade steel with a black powder-coating finish.

    Protection. These rear tail light guards are made in a Euro style that helps give a little edge and detail to your Jeep. They will easily protect your rear lights from rock, debris and any other damage you may encounter on and off the road.

    Application. To install, simply slip-on your 1987-2006 Wrangler YJ & TJ.

    Trying to install these babies - the factory bolts are too short (which I knew would be the case) and with the ones they sent the thread seems to be off but the length is fine. I've checked a few hardware stores and not finding the right size of thread. Any ideas? Or for you folks who have successfully installed these, where did you get the longer bolts from?

    • I would remove one of the factory bolts into a hardware store and they can figure out the thread and then you can get the correct length.

      They don't fit 98 TJ

      They are supposed to contour to fit the bend of your jeep but they don't. Because they make the covers bend before the curve of your vehicle there is a large gap between the guards and your vehicle. On top of that they didn't even send the right size screws to mount them to your vehicle. Horrible product.

      Doesn't Fit as advertised

      These guards are advertised to fit 87-06 TJ and YJ models. However, what they don't tell you is that you have to unplug, or cut the wires to install them from the bottom due to their design. Even worse is the fact that they do not have a flat mounting surface, unlike the pictures, they have contoured bends like they were supposed to partially wrap around your fender so there is a left and a right (also not stated). However first of all, they don't reach the contour of the fender which means their is a gap where the contour bend starts when installed in original mounting holes. They supply self tapping metal screws instead of the correct bolts for application as well. Even if you are stupid enough to move them over so they reach the contour of your fender, and put six new holes in the fenders, they still do not have the right contour and leaves the outer edge sticking past the end of the fenders. Extremely bad design all the way around.

      Sharp

      Tail Light guards look sharp, added to appearance of the tail lights. Screws they gave did not fit they were to thin, factory ones were to short, had to buy others otherwise went on very easy.

      Grounding issue

      Looked great, easy installation . But they caused a grounding issue with my taillights. Dimmed my brake lights, blinkers didn’t function correctly once I put them on. Changed my bulbs 3 times, only to find out that once I removed these guards, everything started to function again.

      Tail Light Guards

      These otherwise excellent guards will not fit on my application. I have after market LED tail lights. The lights can only be inserted from the top, by taking the lens off. Due to the internal LED wiring, I cannot remove the lens, nor can I unplug the wiring harness to install the guard. It is a shame, because they really looked nice when I put the old, original tail lights inside the guard. If not for the fitment problem, they would be on the jeep now.

      Decent Guards

      Guards were very sturdy. Right side went on as described in instructions. Left side wire harness couldn't be pulled out of body to unplug it, so I ended up cutting the taillight wires and re-splicing them. The guard will only pass over the taillight body in one direction, so you have to unplug the taillights to install it. If the lower hoop was made larger, it would be much easier. The screws they sent to re-mount the taillights are linger to accommodate the thick baseplate behind the light, but they are the wrong size. They are too thin and wouldn't tap into the body holes. I had to use other sheetmetal screws. What should have been a 1/2 hour job took over an hour.

      Actually are stronger than I expected. Go on easy. Should make tail light cover big enough to slide over light, not having to remove light. just the lens. Love em
