Re: Putco LED conversion list

Not sure if this has been answered yet or not. But does anyone know the bulb size for the dome lights? And if these are capable of being switched to LEDs?

Dome lights yes, map lights no. I don't have the on the list because I have never received confirmation from anyone the exact replacement for them yet. I attempted to take the cover off but didn't want to snap it, so I put it back. Contact Steve at XenonDepot in the Vendors section, he may be able to get you a part number finally for the dome lights..

Re: Putco LED conversion list

I just finally got around to installing my LED's I did the daytime running lamps, reverse lights, tail gate lamps and tail gate reverse lights... Tailgate took about 5 minutes, reverse lights took about 5 minute and the daytime running lamps took 2 minutes for passenger side and about 5 minutes for drivers side. For the drivers side, the snorkel comes off the air box without any tools, just take off the top of the air box, remove the snorkel and it gives you access to the daytime running lamp. Much easier then going through the wheel well in my opinion.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Also a FYI, I got the Neutron bulbs.. Im pretty sure my reverse lights allow me to see like an extra 20 feet at night on the camera. Damn are they bright! But so very cool

Re: Putco LED conversion list

I tried the license plate leds, but I don't think this stuff is for me. They look too blue. My wife's BMW has LED license plate lights, and I've always thought they looked neat. So I parked the cars next to each other, and my WK2 looked just ghetto. I looked for some stuff near 4300K, maybe even up to 4700K or so, but I found nothing.

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Any advice on removing the cover for the dome/map light area? Like others, i've been able to get half off but dont wanna snap the other plastic tab.

Dome lights are the 194 wedge style. Map lights are something diff and i wont want to replace those it looks like. Did anyone else have to remove their rear license plate when replacing the bulbs to get the plastic cover to swing all the way down and off??

I have a rear plate frame and can still get the covers off, just press the plate in a little if need be to get them to swing down enough to pull off.

I am not sure if you can remove the dome light covers, I know some people just pull it half way off, use needle nose pliers and change the bulbs that way..

Re: Putco LED conversion list

Awesome, thanks. Will try that.

anyone try the newer NEUTRON bulbs from Putco? The ones that are supposed to have the brightest LEDs but are just three LEDs facing forward.

Want to make sure enough light will reflect in the housing and fill out the area nicely.


*EDIT: I should have specified that I am asking for the Daytime Running lights... wondering if forward facing LEDs are working out ok there.

Yes, thumbsup to the Neutron's, they are very sharp. I recall they went into the tailgate lenses so the rear facing LED's are perfect there with little to no need for the reflector angles.

It's a bit of a PITA to remove the tailgate panel but search around here for a few threads and photos, not bad once you get the hang of the plastic plugs/fasteners.
