    Need tail lamps for a 1998 Zieman JS1 trailer.

    Sounds simple enough but the Zieman trailer has a lip that covers the top 1/2 or so of the taillight which means it has to sit in a channel. The stock wesbar lights were tricky to get out And were about 2 5/8 deep but the new Wesbar replacements are redesigned and are 3 deep from front to back and wont fit. Any suggestions?

    Cut the lip off. Angle grinder or hacksaw.

    File the cut edge smooth (maybe round over the outside corner), then apply paint for rust protection.

    Install larger replacement lamps. LED, I presume.

    Drill lower holes to accomodate the lip

    you could see if this bracket

    https://www.etrailer.com/Accessories...cs/BK70BB.html

    will fit up in there and then just buy the rubber grommet and tailights to fit the bracket.

    I have bought this bracket and these lights

    https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Lig.../STL602RB.html

    because i liked the X pattern. I still need to mount them on my trailer but mine is different from yours.

    just an idea.
