      Review & Installation Video

      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

        Looks great

        Took a minute to install as the taillight didn’t fit exactly through the ends(pretty snug fit). Otherwise pretty easy install and addition.

        They don't adhere and stay flush at some of the corners and they look a little cheap

        The screw and contour issues

        The below reviews are correct. The included screws are the wrong size for a TJ. You will need to go to the hardware store first and purchase 12-24 screws about 1/4 longer than the factory screw. Take the factory screw with you. Also these guards are contoured to fit the curve of a Jeep. However, these do not fit the curves of a TJ. You will have a space (albeit a small space) between the contour edge of the guard and your TJ. After I solved the above, the install was 10 minutes. Also, if you plan to replace your rear bulbs for your TJ at the same time, the reverse bulb is a 1156 and the tail light/stop is a 1157.

        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.

      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.
