Yeah, like I said in my posts they dim perfectly with the rest of the interior lights. Thats why I chose the power source that I did so that these footwel lights dim with the rest. It works and looks great!
Last night was the first night I drove the Jeep with the new footwell lights and it looks incredible. As weird as this may sound, it adds a whole different interior feel at night. Jeep really should have done this from the factory.

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

Yeah, I can imagine. That's why I'd LOVE to do it. Unfortunately, I'm a musician and not that "handy".

And after seeing what you did, there ain't no way I'm paying for the Mopar kit!

I mean, I don't need all the circus, disco color selection, and the fact that they don't dim with the rest of the lights, for me anyway, is a deal-breaker and just stupid!

Is the black plastic a panel LED mounting item or just a bezel off an LED you had laying around?

THey are just rubber grommets I had laying around that fit perfectly.


Tell you guys what if there is anyone that really wants this mod done but cant do it themselves I would be willing to do it for you for a relatively small amount. You will need to send me your two footwell panels, but other than that all you would have to do is splice into the two wires under your console which is simple. PM me if interested.

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

I picked up the LEDs on Wednesday, and my new GC yesterday. I hope to get a chance on the weekend to do this, and it wil be the first mod to the car.

In Australia 2 x LEDs, a pack of resistors, LED bezel clips and heat shrink tubing cost me $14. I think I have wire and connectors at home.

Just doing the fronts for now, and rear foot well sometime later.

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

Ledcalc.com is great for working out the right resistor.

I bought 390 ohm 1/4 watt resistors, based on calculations from ledcalc.com. I'll be using one resistor per 2 led's. So one resistor will feed the two front led's and another resistor will feed the rear two.

It's been a very wet weekend in Sydney so I didnt get a chance to do mine yet.

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

FYI ..... for any of your daring people that want to solder on your own resistor SuperbrightLEDs recommends 560 Ohm resistor for 12-14 volt power.

I am gonna tackle this project this weekend since I finally picked up the resistors

Re: Here it is. Custom interior ambient footwell LED lighting. Pics inside!

I just completed my install. Waiting for it to go dark so I can see how it looks.

Remarkably easy interior to work with. The most time consuming bit was building up the wiring loom before I installed it. I also provisioned wiring for the rear footwell, for when I get those LEDs, so it's just ready to go.

Great inspiration, James! How does it feel to have you work being replicated on the other side of the planet?
