Replacing 2000 WJ Tail lights

Hey guys, i need to replace my Tail lights, would like the LED lights if possible, to avoid getting another fixture with that dang bulb-socket burning issue. I am writing to see who your recommendation for an LED fixture would be. Thanks,
-Ross

Re: Replacing 2000 WJ Tail lights

There is a thread somewhere on the board in which someone installed these on their WJ. I cannot find it at this time. They look really nice and plan to go with them when finances allow.

Re: Replacing 2000 WJ Tail lights

so if you put these in you can run LEDs without wiring a resistor in for the turn signals???

Re: Replacing 2000 WJ Tail lights

You still need a resistor if you want to do LED turn signals. I have these tails and love them! Highly recommended. However, they use a standard filament bulb for turn signal and reverse, bulb #1156. I have left a filament bulb in the turn signal rather than wire a resistor, but I bought a set of 7W high power LED reverse bulbs from VLEDs, they are insanely bright.

Re: Replacing 2000 WJ Tail lights

Great set of lights, I had a post about these when I got them for my old WJ.
I would highly recommend them, I would also suggest the "tinted" ones which look better IMO, although they really are not that tinted at all, just the signal/reverse is slightly.
