Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

This was one of the first things I did to my jeep when I bought it in April, and I haven't really noticed much of a difference when backing up at night as far as glare goes. I recommend this cheap upgrade.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

While a worthwhile upgrade, upgrading your license plate lights to LED is more of a cosmetic upgrade rather than a functional one.

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

I just installed some LEDs in my license plate lights. Took less than 5 minutes and the light looks great. Much brighter than stock!

Re: LED License Plate Lights Install w/pics

Anyone else having problems with burn outs? I have went through 2 sets so far. They are getting to hot and melting the led's off of the stems.

I used one of those rubber jar opener pads, and it came right out.

I mean straight towards whatever angle they are in, nonetheless straight out of the socket...
