I did not see a Putco equivalent listed on the first page, not to mention these were a lot cheaper, even when compared to Putco bulbs on Amazon! It appears that Jeep already has some type LED in the "map" portion of the lights...just wish they were a bit whiter, but not sure how easily they are changed out.


Some members with the WK have had these light blow out and start smoking. Is it really worth it to risk your safety on these cheap chinese bulbs?

Great thanks, I'll try that.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

i noticed on the license plate lights it's a flat blade type LED, is that the one I would want or depending on the socket will it be down-firing or facing a wrong way?

I have also read of Putcos blowing out...not to mention, I can't find where Putco makes a similarly sized bulb. If you know of the part #, please share it!

EDIT: Has anyone tried the B-type (360° illumination) stick bulbs in the overhead lights?

Nothing, there is no H16 factory bulb replacement to mate to the Jeep. Best bet is to install an HID kit or if you want to put in an LED you can change the plug down there.. Check out this link

http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php...light=fog+bulb

Vleds makes an H16 LED, not plug as play as mentioned though.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

I have an all black interior and was thinking all red interior except for my overhead DVD player lights. It probably would look cool but not very efficient. Blue would be brighter but I'm not too crazy about it. I need to find another vendor other that KBcarstuff.com. These guys take forever to ship.

Amazon has all these Putco bulbs...cheaper and free 2-day shipping if you are a Prime member.
