Thanks for your play by play of your job. I'm currently working 2 hrs a day five days a week putting my daughter on and off the bus. I don't need to work anymore cause my wife makes so much money I can wipe my ass with 20's

No problem. Good for you to have picked up a sugar momma. I too would like one as well but I like to work with my hands and couldn't sit around doing nothing.

Nobody said I was sitting around doing nothing. I have plenty to do with my hands, with my E-46 project car.

are the 2015's fogs H11 or psx24w? The jeep manual says H11 but I have seen otherwise.

Re: 2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

Has anyone replaced the always on foot-well lighting yet? I replaced the front bulb that comes on with the door open already. But would like to change the tiny one behind it to something a tad brighter/more blueish. I pulled the liner down a bit and can see its a harness it plugs into. Anyone make something plug and play for that or do I need to rig something up myself?

I purchased blue 5 mm LEDs w resisters and grommets from ebay. Sanded them flat for better light dispersement and to tone them down. I drilled a hole in the footwell panal, threaded the bulb w the grommet, disconnected the existing lame footwell light and direct wired the the led into the harness and secured the wire w electrical tape. The blue led is a bit darker in color than the OE interior lighting in my summit. IMHO I think it looks great, subtle and appears stock.

Re: 2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

Hey Guys,

First post here but not new to forums (I made the switch from a Silverado to Grand Cherokee).

Although the glove box light was a b*tch to get at, the rest of the interior lights went rather well.

I wanted to give some tips on install since this forum also helped me with install.

1) The grab handles don't have to come off - use a small flat head to pop one side of the plastic cover off and you have access to the bulb (I first removed one handle completely, then lesson learned). Pry on the side that you turn the light on and off.

2) the kick lights / courtesy lights under the front dash are super easy. Cover just pops off by hand.

3) the map lights were a little tricky. I could only get one side of the plastic cover off. I used an angled pliers to pull the bulbs out. I did not replace the "front" lights - it doesn't bother me that much that they are different colors.

4) rear lift gate - I used a VERY small flat head (used to fix eye glasses) and popped the covers off. You do have to use some force so take your time on this. You then have access to the bulbs. I did have to pull the socket itself through the hole to have enough pressure to put the cover back on (tough to explain but you'll see what I mean once you have the cover off).

As far as bulb choice, I ordered Philips 194LED bulbs from RockAuto (see picture). I did order rear exterior LED bulbs but those I'll have to return - stupid "no bulb error" when using LEDs.

Edit: I'm trying to post a picture of the bulbs I bought, but I can't due to this being my first post or because I'm posting from a tablet.

Are your replacement lights any brighter? My stock lights might as well not even be there. I would like something noticeable but not distracting. hardest part would be a matching blue color.

Here is a picture of the Opt7 T-shaped blue leds from amazon for the door open footwell light-


They look a little purple in the picture but are a dark dark blue. Still looking for something lighter blue if I can find it.
