Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

I did find some LEDs to go in the plate spot, they appear like they will fit correctly, just got them in today. I will try to do an install and pics on Sunday and post.

I did try to replace the rear turn signals with LEDs today and you do get the fast flash or bulb out indicator. Anyone know if the turn signal relay is a separate unit that can be replaced to fix this problem? I know some heavy duty flasher units do not use voltage draw to function but some other method and may work with the LEDs. I really do not want to screw around with resistors or anything else to get them to work.

I'm thinking my March 2011 built Overland is different than yours.

There was a relay or electrical component in the way on the passenger side that I had to unclip and move out of the way before I had space to get my hand down there to get to the passenger DRL..

I had to disconnect the massive air intake hose (hose clamp) and another tube coming off of it to even get the air filter top open far enough to get the air filter out... then the steering reservoir hose was ziptied to a push-in clip thing that absolutely refused to come out without a massive amount of force... I finally ended up breaking the clip (in hindsight, I should have just cut the stupid zip tie). I guess I'll find something to replace it at an auto parts place.

I used to mod my 02 TJ all the time, and I don't think I cursed Chrysler as much as I did while trying to get to those DRL bulbs... it shouldn't be that complicated, especially when they have instructions in the owners manual on how to replace the turn signal lights which are an inch away...

But...

It looks great once it's done.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

I just put the Novas in and they look great but I noticed some discoloration at the top of the DRL reflector. I didn't check before the install and they have only been lit for about 20 seconds to check the brightness so I don't know if the reflector was already like that. Has anyone else noticed that?

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Man I'm proud of myself. I so just changed out my DRL's with the VLED 6k's!!! Only took me 10 min and that's with me doing it twice. I didn't follow the advice of making sure they worked before putting everything back together. When I realized it wasn't working I was like 'ah hell...' But it took no time to take apart and do it all over again. Only tool necessary is a flat head for us 3.6 V6 boys as there is a fuse component (flat head helps release the clip) on the passenger side that requires moving to get your hand down in there. Anywho... I'm proud of myself called up my friend that was going to come over and help and said nevermind.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Done and done... That driver side is a PITA... Your instructions were spot on. First pic is passenger side=LED and driver side=Stock. Second is both LED. Difference is pretty drastic. You might not be able to get a sense of the yellow vs white in the pic but in person it is night and day. White definitely takes it up a notch Highly recommended.

You can confirm that this item is for 2 bulbs, right? The amazon description says "bulb" and only one is shown in the photo.
