REPLACED 40 YEAR OLD ORIGINALS WITH NEW LIGHTS SO THEY COMPLEMENTED THE NEW PAINT ON THE GRILL. BECAUSE I WAS PAINTING GRILL I HAD HEADLIGHTS OUT SO I WENT THROUGH HEADLIGHT OPENING TO INSTALL. IF YOU HAVE REALLY BIG HANDS YOU MIGHT CONSIDER REMOVING THE RADIATOR. I HAD ONE CONNECTOR COME LOOSE DURING INSTALLATION, BUT WAS ABLE TO RECONNECT. MY BIGGEST COMPLAINT WAS THAT THE LIGHTS DID NOT COME WITH NEW NUTS. THE ORIGINALS HAD ALUMINUM LOCK NUTS AND THE NUTS WERE CORRODED ENOUGH THAT THEY DID NOT WANT TO GO ON THE STUDS. I STOPPED WORKING AND WENT TO STORE TO BUY NEW NUTS, BUT COULDN'T FIND LOCK NUTS. BOUGHT NUTS AND STAR SHAPED LOCK WASHERS TO REPLACE ORIGINAL LOCK NUTS. WISH CROWN HAD INCLUDED NEW ONES. WORD TO WISE IS TO TAKE THE REPLACEMENT PART OUT OF THE BOX AND SEE WHAT YOU NEED FOR INSTALL. BOTTOM LINE IS THAT AFTER I GOT THE REQUIRED HARDWARE IT WAS A SIMPLE INSTALL AND THE LIGHTS LOOK AND WORK GREAT.
does these come with a rubber gasket?

What is the diameter of this light in inches. I have a front end clip,(grill) off an old jeep and do not know the year of the grill.
