Re: JDubya's build thread...09 WK Overland... meet Sparkles the Beast

Great pics! What kind of strobes do you have? 4 corners? What do you do with them? For work?

Looks like those Duratracs are wearing pretty good? How many miles on them?

Thanks! By "strobes" i mean off-camera flashes for photography, sorry about that

However! I do really want to add automotive strobes to the tail lights and headlights just for "off-road" use

The Duratracs are wearing great. There's about 13K on them and they still look mint. I've heard of some people complaining that they're too soft but I don't think so

Re: JDubya's build thread...09 WK Overland... meet Sparkles the Beast

I decided to do the ambient lighting mod in red. I chose red because it's better on your eyes at night. I'm going to use one 5mm LED (they're pretty damn bright) in the overhead console, just to the rear of the sunroof switch. I was hoping I could pull power from the homelink connector since the buttons light up when the parking/head lights are on but can-bus makes it more difficult than that. However, there is one lead that is ignition-switched, which would make the install cleaner/easier, but do I want it on whenever the Jeep is on? It's not like you'd see it during the day... decisions decisions

I'm also going to add an LED in each door handle recess (on the top, firing down), and maybe one at the rear of the center console above the outlet on the angled part

Here's the output at 2':


Gross! I don't want any hotspots so I frosted the tip with some 320 grit sandpaper









MUCH better

To be continued...

Don't put them on ACC. Keep it OEM like Muddy and I. Wire them to come on with the parking lights. It's much better that way.
