LED Interior Lights

Very proud of myself, beyond filling my Jeep with gas I'm able to do little beyond what must guys would consider routine maintenance. SO, this is very easy to do. Great youtube vid - search: Jeep Grand Cherokee LED interior, to get the steps. I ordered this light kit off Amazon for 15.99, I also ordered a trim removal tool, but was able to remove all the pieces with a table knife and leather man. The difference is great, really looks nice, especially with vanity mirror. Light is more bright and all white - replaced vanities, map lights, foot well lights, rear hatch lights and back seat reading lights. Thought I would share my success, haha. Hopefully the pictures come through ok. Also have some LED fogs coming 6500K color, they should match up well. I'll post those pics here too. 2014 JCG Summit, FYI.

Very nice. I replaced all of my interior and reverse lights with LED's but spent much more than you through another website. How did you determine all of the lights needed from Amazon to make the swap? Is there a package being offer now through their website? Also, curious what lights (brand/type) you are using for your fogs.

Looking good. I'll probably get this done sometime soon.

Amazon sells them as a kit 2011+ model year light kit. You get 16 bulbs. They're packaged pretty cheap, but 24hrs in, no problems once dogs are installed I'll circle back

Re: LED Interior Lights

I got a cheap led interior light kit from eBay, only 11.99. They have been in for a week and notice one light lost a little brightness but it came with a total of 18 lights when I only need 13, so I just swapped it out.

Did you guys switch out the glove box light? Any tips on that?

Wlhnlh. What reverse led light did you pick up? I think that's my next swap.

Re: LED Interior Lights

No I didn't do anything with the glove box, kind of figured that was overkill. Wouldn't mind swapping out those two mini reading lights overhead in the same lens as the other swapped lights....did you do those as well?

I did install an LED bulb in my glove box. Boy, it was fun. The service manual says to open glove box door, reach in and pull bulb out with 2 fingers. I don't know how thin the person's fingers are who wrote that but there is no way that bulb will come out with 2 fingers.

I wound up removing the glove box door, and inner glove box parts and removed the side panel on side of dash to slooooowly get at that bulb. I just hope the led bulb lasts as long as I keep the vehicle since I don't want to do that again. And yes, it did make a good difference, so I guess??? it was worth it.

Now those 2 dull yellow looking overhead courtesy lights are bugging me. Especially since installing 2 led bulbs in the rear part of the overhead courtesy light console. Don't know if I feel like unsoldering and resoldering some leds in place. Oh it never ends.

Re: LED Interior Lights

That's a huge difference in lighting. What's the eBay sellers name and did the instructions for the install in the various light positions come with the kit?

Re: LED Interior Lights

I spent about $80 on an LED Precision kit. Half the bulbs have gone bad within a couple of months. I will look into this Amazon kit.

Re: LED Interior Lights

That whole soldering thing for the one set of lights is enough to be a pain. The others seem to pop in easily.

Re: LED Interior Lights

Just my $0.02:

Do NOT buy cheap LED's...you will end up replacing them and/or having them fail when needed. Spend over $40k on a vehicle but cheapen out on the lights? No thank you!

Have done many LED installs, and 3 WK2's in the last couple weeks. All LED's from XenonDepot (vendor on JeepGarage) and I could not be happier (did not solder the over head)! I will let the pics do the talking...and the reverse lights are like HID's! HAHA

Re: LED Interior Lights

So you left the overheads stock since those are the ones that need to be soldered and just did all the rest of the interior lights?
