    I have a '69 CJ5 with the side marker lights on the hood. I don't really want them there and I am thinking of putting it up for trade for a plain hood. The guy who sold me the Jeep said intact, oem hood marker lamps are hard to find, is that true?

    Thanks, Andy

    Are they lamps or reflectors?

    Now that you mention it, guess they are reflectors. I can take them off and fill the holes, because they just look like something to get broken on a trail ride. It's just that maybe somebody is looking for a hood with reflectors.

    Yes they are highly desired and very hard to find originals! There’s a member on here who was 3D printing them. Look up termin8ed posts under “hood reflectors”

    Here’s a pic someone on here posted a while ago showing a CJ coming off the line with the hood reflectors

    Don't think there's anything special about the hood itself. The reflector mounts are probably worth more than the hood:shrug:
    I 3d print them but don't know if anyone else that has them for sale.

    Well, there goes my plan to retire early by selling them for $1 million. I'll just remove them and fill the holes.

    Thank for the info!

    I'm sure you could get a few bucks for them, but I wouldn't put a down payment on a Ferrari just yet.

    I highly doubt they will get damaged on a trail ride, and if they do, you will have much more to worry about than the reflectors.
