Philips LED bulbs for brake and reverse lights

Anyone tried those on 2014?

3157 P21 LED Philips Replacement Bulb (for brake light)

921 T16 Philips X-treme Vision LED Replacement Bulb (for tailgate reverse light)

I've tried searching here on the forums but no reviews/opinions on them.. I'm looking for simple bulb replacement that gives more useful light output..

Appreciate any feedback.

I have all of them on my 2014 srt...awesome bulbs. Got them from.xenondepot. the brake leds need resistors though...which i had jeep_addicted build into my tail harness. Fyi-the taillight side of the reverse uses a different bulb number. Forget right off hand.

Thanks Scott!
Regarding the resistors/canbus, are they needed only because the same bulb is used for turn signal??
If so, they won't be necessary in my case because my Jeep is Export Model (Middle East) and the turn signal is a separate bulb (the one below the brake bulb in the same housing).. and for the reverse light I think it's only the tailgate side, I'll have to check my Manual for the bulb # to confirm..

Re: Philips LED bulbs for brake and reverse lights

I'm also in UAE and looking to change these bulbs. According to the manual the STOP bulb is P27/7W and REVERSE one is 921 (W16W)

Just wondering if the Turn Signal 7440NA (WY21W) needs a resistor if all the others indicator bulbs are LED?

Hope your manual is accurate, mine (1st edition hard copy) is confusing!

For example the front fog light bulb is not correct!

The P27 is also #3157 but it's 7W..
What do you think? Trust the manual and order P27 for the Stop light and 921 for the reverse light?

I'm not gonna change the turn signal bulb, it's not really necessary and I don't wanna worry about resistors..

I still don't know why isn't the rear fog light bulb mentioned in any manual I've seen?!! Any idea what's the correct bulb # or specs for that one?

Re: Philips LED bulbs for brake and reverse lights

This is the version for the front bulbs from my manual - pdf v8 (latest from Jeep site)

I just had a look on the European (Polish) manual and there is nothing about rear fog bulb only how to turn it ON/OFF weird...

The Stop bulb according to the European manual is: 3157 P27/7W and on my version of the manual Stop bulb is P27/7W

For the Reverse bulbs both manuals says the same 921 (W16W)

I think i will order both P27 and 921. Do you recon we can get them anywhere here or best order from US?

Yes H11 is the correct # for front fog light bulbs, already replaced mine with Osram Night Breaker unlimited halogen bulbs..
According to Philips website, 3157 (it's 2W btw) replaces P27 7W (they tested it on Chevy Silverado and Ford F-150)..
Not sure if they're available locally but I'll call Philips ME office tomorrow and ask, otherwise we can make 1 order from US and split the shipping cost..
Also I'll try to access the rear fog light bulb tomorrow.. If it's easy to remove/unplug like the front one, I can inspect it for bulb # or any specs..

Re: Philips LED bulbs for brake and reverse lights

Updates:

- Tried Philips UAE, they don't carry Philips Auto lighting products here..

- Both UAE Jeep dealers (spare parts dept.) confirmed Mopar part # for the rear fog light bulb is "L0007440" and its W21W, obviously it's the 7440 bulb code #..

- I'm waiting for a clarification on the 921 bulb from XenonDepot..
