As for the question of "Will these be available separately"?

I think that would be a great idea!
So we may offer them as a set or "Combo", with a small price break for purchasing both.
And then offer them separately, should you want to use them on the JK, a different truck, or custom built body.
Matt, I've never removed paint from lexan before, much less just the lights. Any pointers? Pics would be great.

Dot 4 brake fluid and Q-tips.

Let the body sit vertical against something, so headlight buckets are level.
Rub Dot 4 on places you want clear. Rub till you get past the white paint.
Do not be afraid to get to much on the light buckets when you reach the silver,
because you will be leaving the body over night to brake up the sliver from the lexan.
In 24hrs wipe away and reapply for a few more hours and scrub away with your Q-tips.
Repeat if not clear.

Hope this helps. I'll have him get some pics up for a better description.

That sounds easy enough. Q-tips hadn't crossed my mind. Thanks Jr.

Are there any videos or pictures of these being installed? I'd love to install these on my Rubicon, but I'm new to R/C's and don't want to jack my Jeep up doing something wrong.

I dont know if I got a defective mold or what, but the headlights did not line up well with the headlight circles on the body. They were off a bit. Also the LED holders did not fit in the turn signal holes, after reaming the hole for the holder, putting the holder and LED in, the LED stuck out too far so it hit the rubicon body. I had to glue the holders to the back of my reamed hole to make sure the LED didn't stick out

Overall not super impressed because of the issues I had, and the possible bad mold. I think it's a bad molding because my turn signal circle indents in the headlight plate look different than in the picture, not as deep. I will try to post pictures of the bad alignment when I get home tonight.

Not entirely sure, perhaps another one of our customers could help with this answer?

But at a glance, with the rear end being dovetailed, it may not allow the tail lights to be installed properly.
Looks like a different angle going around the rear corners, compared to the 4-Door JK body.
