Re: Disable turn signals from being on all time?

I actually had the same thing done to my overland......hated those staying on all the time. Easiest thing to do. When you take out each light from the housing it will look like a 110 plug with two rods. One rod for turn signal the other for drl. You have to break one of the rods. That disables the drl aspect but you still use them for turns. If you REALLY want to turn heads look at the oracle halo light kit for jeep. A bit pricey but i get constant compliments.

Re: Disable turn signals from being on all time?

I have used switchbacks on my Acura TL before. They were pretty cool, but still weren't bright enough in that particular housing. I have yet to see an aftermarket LED bulb that has the same output as the standard incandescent bulb. I got mine from VLEDs.com. They have two types. I forget which is which, but I think type 1 burns white for parking lights, then when turn signals are turned on alternates white and amber. I'm not a fan of those. Type 2 burns steady white, then when turn signals are activated the white turns off and amber flashes. IMO type 2 looks wayyy better.
The WK2 park lamp/turn signal housing is very small and centralized so the LED might work pretty well in it.
You can get everything from VLEDs such as the LED's and the load equalizers you'll need. They have good customer service.

Hope this helps

James

Re: Disable turn signals from being on all time?

Dececption I suggested that bulb to you because I think this is the only bulb that will fit.

I had purchased the projector style switchback and after getting them to fit in the test light. Pictured below I had to trim the base of the bulb for it to fit properly in the socket and in the headlight.

The TURN/PARK area is just about 2 inches deep so a long bulb will not work.



You could only see them from straight ahead and not from the side which would be dangerous. (so I would not recommend these for the Jeep headlight housing. shown about)




This new style with the diffuser instead of the projector seems like it would give visibility from the side as well as fit in the headlight.





This is the other style of switchback but I don't think it will fit so don't buy these unless you can try them and return them.
