    Default Mud behind tail lights Fix JK

    This is a fix for the JK's I did this on 10/15/07
    A hole in the bottom of the jeep will shoot mud up and behind both of the rear tail lights.

    First remove the tail lights The 2 screws only on the right side of the left light and the left side of the right light. Remove the foam piece from both sides. Then clean out the cavity well!

    Left side out.

    Right side out.
    Next you see the hole on each side.

    Left side hole.

    Right rear hole.
    Then place a piece of rubber over the holes.

    Next fill with Marine low expansion foam.

    Left side full up to the tag wires and don't get any on the gas breather.

    Right side about half way up.

    Let cure, reconnect wires to lights and screw back in..
    Done!

    Left rear done!

    Right rear done!
    Now no more mud or stuff will go up into the holes and rot out behind your tail lights..
    I got the marine low expansion foam from a boat repair house. It is made to breath and will not let water stay in but keep dirt out!

    Follow Up!
    On the 23rd at 7am I removed the right tail light and put in 28oz of water on top of the foam then put the tail light back in.
    Just a little bit ago (3pm/1500hrs) I removed the right tail light and checked the cavity and not a drop of moister was found! So this was a great fix it keeps the dirt, & mud out but still lets it breath!

    Very clever indeed! improvised, overcame, and adapted!

    How much is that foam stuff? Spray can or liquid?

    My '90 YJ spews a ton of gas out the top of the vent tube, ever had that happen? Smells like....victory... the whole time I'm driving.
