Don't you want less light on your ID plate?

It makes sense but I don't mind it. Cops can't bust me for anything, I'm a model citizen.

I would imagine the WK2 isn't too fundamentally different. For me it was twist and pull.

Re: Led License Plate Bulbs Upgrade

On all i did take of the covers and then the just pulled the bulb straight out.

i believe it was the same for my WJ

I ordered the rear fog light converter kit.

I also ordered the main reverse lights the other night.

Re: Led License Plate Bulbs Upgrade

where is the guide on how to replace those reverse lights?
And would a 360 led be better for the application? or that one direction led?
