Thrid brake light retrofit?

I have an 83 110 that does not have a third tail light. I was thinking in the interest of safety, actually after almost getting rear ended at stop light by a girl on her cell phone... She wasn't paying attention and had to slam on her brakes hard. Her bumper just kissed mine. It didn't even scratch paint on either vehicle but the indecent had me thinking that the brake lights on the 110 are rather small.

So does any one have any recommendations for an aftermarket third brake light? The 90 has the cool bar isn't the 110s inside on the top of the glass?

I'm removing mine soon. When I do, you can have it cheap.

Yes this is a cheap alternative - see a lot of Jeeps with oversized tires do this. Get an old center cap and add a cheap light, rattle can it.

Why not just pick up a disco 3rd brake light like is in the SW. Check with George at RDS.
