I just got these sills plates. I would love for them to light up in blue tho to match the interior lighting... What kind of LED LIGHTS do I have to purchase to make this happen?... Also how many do I have to buy and where would I get them from? If you can't tell already, I'm not too bright when it comes to this type of stuff lol.

Jax,

Forgive me if I'm getting your question here wrong, but the Jeep lighted sills use a small LED...that connects to a socket coming from the sill piece...which is connected to "fiber optics" of sorts...which transmit the light from the LED bulb to the "JEEP" logo in the sills.

One would only have to change out this white LED bulb with a colored one to change the logo color in the sill. I don't happen to know the exact LED bulb number that Mopar uses in their sills, but I'm sure someone down at Radio Shack could help you.

I want to say its a 5 mm size bulb in there and you would need to cut off the heat shrink and resolder the new bulb. Should be a resistor currently on there as well

I haven't had a chance to check my sill plates out but I would guess this is correct. If so then you would probably need the following bulb https://www.superbrightleds.com/more...-9000-mcd/277/

2014 would be blue for the interior. Before then its green or Cyan is the correct color. I have green accent LED from the same website lights now and they are pretty close.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

Just installed these this past weekend. Really enjoy the look they add. Pretty easy to install provided you have the tools necessary.

From reading the posts on here regarding changing the LED bulb, I was interested in attempting that. But, I actually do like the white color.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

I just ordered some clear 8mm film to cover/protect the outer sill. The painted area. That's the area that takes a beating on my cars. Similar to the clear film on the bottom of the rear quarter that they put on at the factory to protect from stone chips. I think the roll was 6" X 60" for around 7 bucks on eBay. Tomorrow I'll make a template, cut to size and install it.

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

Good idea, do you have the Ebay link of where / whom you bought it from? TIA

Re: Installed Jeep Illuminated Sill Plates

I haven't installed it yet, so I can't honestly endorse it until I do. I was wrong about the price, I paid 9 bucks, not 7.

Not much really to show as it's just clear plastic. Time will tell if it peels.
