Re: Interior LED's - Footwells, Glove box & Tailgate

Nate, the rear cargo area LED's what color did you get??? White or UV? I am going to be doing this to my jeep, but I want to order the right one....




EDIT do you also have a night time pic??? I need a lot more light back there.... Last week I was on a highway working a accident scene and i had to use my personal flashlight to find my gear in the truck. I want it to light up like this.....

Nick trust me, I know what your going through. I have done it in stages. This is one of my last steps before my jeep is the way I would like it. My final step is the PCM tuner and exhaust.

Haha, I love it though! So many cool things you can find. Just gotta keep pacing myself but I'm convinced this project will not ever be "finished". Honestly, I don't want it to be.

The most pressing of mods are currently an intake, skidplate, cb/pa/dual antennas, Rola basket, powdercoat the tail light guards I've got, port/polish the TB, power wire, fab up a stinger guard/bumper, still need to fold the pinch weld, d ring for the hitch, find a way to mount a winch...

The lights will come way down the line but I bookmarked the thread.

Re: Interior LED's - Footwells, Glove box & Tailgate

But Demaster if you're going to be using that area back there a lot than I would put in at least 4 more led's. It's bright back there now just you may want it brighter. It's cool if you have the interior LED and take the light deflecting plates out of the map lights up front. It really lights up the jeep inside at night. Even a cop complimented me on them when I was getting pulled over. LOL

I am thinking of doing 8, 6 along the back and then 1 on each side above the window shining down to the center of the trunk. I will have to see, lots of work to do no time!!!

Re: Interior LED's - Footwells, Glove box & Tailgate

Re: Interior LED's - Footwells, Glove box & Tailgate

Can someone comment on the exact steps needed to add this resistor to their liftgate light? (do this to this wire and this to the other etc.) And what resistor I need to purchase? I am electrically challenged.

I have LEDs in every one but this one (because of the afterglow) and would really like to have them all the same.

I already bought a load equalizer shown in the link below, but have no idea what to do with it? Will it work? Here is the description.

http://autolumination.com/equalizers.htm

100 OHM DELUXE ALUMINUM
10 watt LED Load Equalizer
Corrects Most LED Related Problems of led bulbs that will not shut off - Adds about 1-2 watts of load.
One for each led bulb resolves after glow when led bulbs is supposed tro shut off.
The equalizer must be spliced across the - ground wire and the + wire feeding to each led bulb.

You need a 470 ohm resistor you can get one at radio shack. Picture illustrated said resistor installed in rear liftgate bulb socket...im sure you can figure it out...you just have to add a resistor in parallel within the circuit...
