Re: LED Approach/Entry/Puddle Lighting Mod write-up!!!

I am actually looking at using these DRLs for this purpose. Made to be used on cars so double insulated and shockproof ( to a point).

With those being as small as they are, I wonder what kind of light it would throw on the ground? When you install please post pics.

Yeah mine are a little on the bright side, I may paint over every other led to create a dimmer output.

I don't think anything else will give you the even light distribution of the led strips

Re: LED Approach/Entry/Puddle Lighting Mod write-up!!!

Point taken about light dispersal...I will use these as an experiment and hope they do what I want because they were made to be out in the weather and shouldn't have moisture issues.

Re: LED Approach/Entry/Puddle Lighting Mod write-up!!!

I did mine last night. Used the LED Strip lights and plasti-dipped the cut ends. A tad on the bright side but once I upgrade the headlamps to the SRT Black Bi-Xenons, I'm sure the contrast will even out...I got compliments immediately after the install ,when I ran out to the store

No pics as I did one side of the Jeep today and after dark gave it a try. I am not happy with the results, the light amount is perfect but the DRL acts as a sort of pencil beam and does not disperse at all.
