Re: An Introductory Guide To Upgrading Your WJ's Interior Lighting to LED

They look great! I like the white look also, they plug right in or do ya need to do something special? I've never messed with those kinda lights before.

Re: An Introductory Guide To Upgrading Your WJ's Interior Lighting to LED

Once you get to the panel you just take a pliers and twist the plastic connector out and twist a new one in.

Make sure you plug it in and check that the lights are all in correctly before you put everything back together! I learned the hard way... Haha

Re: An Introductory Guide To Upgrading Your WJ's Interior Lighting to LED

I wanted to check just for that reason, learning the hard way. Knowing my luck, they'd probably light everything up like a Christmas tree and blow up! lol

I can give you a link to each one I used in each location from V-LED. Most importantly Louis, Remember that good things come to those who wait and patience is a virtue

I haven't tampered with the glove box or ashtray as of yet so I don't know the orientation of the sockets.

These were the brightest options I could find for each given socket.

Louis lol! Oh man you're gonna milk this for everything it's worth eh? Lol ::

It's the dash cluster bulbs I'm after, as I've done the rest of the interior. They're cheap enough even if I get the wrong ones it's only a few 's


Signed


Louis

Oh my bad, I forgot that you had did the interior already lol. And no I don't plan on milking it lol, just a few comments

Also, if you have any pics of when you did your pedals and the welding process I would enjoy seeing them. Ever since you mentioned changing them I've been very intrigued with doing it lol.

I didn't take pics of the welding, but it was pretty straight forward. I just got a scrap metal plate, cut it down to size, had a friend weld it in place (so I've no idea if it was MIG or TIG or whatever). I then drilled the holes and fitted the bolts.

The pedals were listed for a Commander and not a WJ, but the WJ does have the smallest brake pedal I've seen on an automatic. Usually it's massive.

So that Ebay aluminum brake pedal is a pretty good step up in size compared to the OEM?
