Oh I will, hopefully soon, I've been changing too many bulbs back there, last one was yesterday. Next time I have to change a single bulb back there I'm switching ALL of them to v-leds.

Yeah I don't think why you can't, you might need to silicone the socket in place since you wouldn't be able to use the OEM screw-in socket base. Well now that I think about it... probably that base can be modified (open hole in the back and gut it) to fit the new hid socket . Hmm... I might try that sooner than you think, I have an extra set of HIDs some one recently gave me .
Has this mod been done on a WJ? Back up HIDs?

Re: V-Leds are BRIGHT!

Was your problem only the bulb? i would have to replace the whole thing till i got smart and bought a socket and connected it directly saved alot of money.

Yeah mine was just the bulb that went bad. You mean you replaced the screw in base and bulb? Why? Those OEM screw in socket base has never gone bad on me. Not sure what you meant.

I don't know now, but next time I'll take out the tail light I'll see what I can do and let you know. But I don't think wiring is going to be a problem at all.

Holly sh*t.... You are crazy... you went out installed HIDs and came back 1 1/2 hrs later with pics and all.
Looks great!
How did you install the bulb/socket?
Told ya wiring wasn't going to be a problem...
Depending on the connectors of the extra ballast you have you might be able to order the other bulb from Xenon depot or another vendor here. Snap a pic of the ballast and connectors so we can see.

Re: V-Leds are BRIGHT!

I am sure this has been asked, but what is the number for the interior dome lights and rear passenger lights?

Also, did you do your Cargo Area lights? thats 579 according to my list, but i dont see it on VLEDs

dont give me any ideas when i have the right stuff cause i will do it!

i just forced it in there and it stayed stuck

this is what i did last night i need to go back i retape it nicer and stick the ballast to one side and put something around the socket so water wont get in.

if any one wants a how to... let me know and i will make one when i get the other bulb
