Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

i was thinking that little access point with the round cover in both the front fender linings was for access to the headlight bulbs... is this not the case?

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

On the Limited's and Overlands the projector headlights (projectors) are bi-xenon (high and low beams). They are controlled by an aperture that opens when the high beams are requested to release the full amount of light.

On laredo's the outside lens is the low beams the inside lens are the high beams. All four lights will illuminate when the high beams are on.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Just called and canceled my 194 order...looks like they have a non-360 type bulb, a single LED bulb that should work on the plate light.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

I think an LED that projects forward should work fine. The reflector is directly in front of the bulb which inturn reflects light back toward the sorrounding reflectors, just like what the regular bulb does.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Would a bulb of this sort work decently for rear tail lights?

If you mean the three led rather than the 360 degree ones like I installed for the DRL, yes I think they should work well for the tail lights. Dont see a need for 360 back they since there is not really any real need for taking advantage of the reflector on the brake lights.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Is there any need on the new GC to add the resisters? I know on my old ram if I put any LED bulbs in there it would throw a bulb out message.

Should only be an issue for turn signals (if that) not with DRL, brake, or marker lights. With turn signals you may get the fast flash as it tries to let you know a bulb is out because of decreased voltage draw. But I will let you know. I am going to try to order some LEDs this weeks for my turn signals and brakes.
