Something like the XLume lights would certainly not work.

I may play around with the old Jeep ones and see if I can come up with anything...

A few WS2812B 5050 RGB would do the trick, but then they'd have to have some type of seal to prevent the circuit board from getting wet/moisture.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Happy holidays.. I gotta make an appointment with the dealer on Monday but does. Anyone have any idea why this is like this: I felt something was wrong while changing lanes at a high speed

Was that just the rotor moving?

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Hub bearing is shot otherwise known as a wheel bearing. Causes are oversize tires, pot holes, curbs or using tires that are worn uneven over a lot of miles or a defective part. They will fix you right up. Is the other side tight? Needs oem parts. On the older zj's aftermarket is no good. Good luck

Yeah the other side is good.. So I shouldn't drive it again til the dealer takes care of this right.. I've seen a jeeps rear wheel pop off on the highway b4. "Very dramatic scene" jeep flipped about 4 times. Everyone lived.. Don't need a repeat of this

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

I'd check with the dealer. They'll probably come after it but the rotor and pads hold it together unlike an old rear drum brake axle that pops right out. Wouldn't want to go far and watch for tire rub.

Thanks for the help Jeepers'

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Got the fogs from taillight solutions and the other LED bulbs from Vleds. I was able to use LED's in the turn signals and fog lights without using resistors on my 2015, no hyper flashing inside the cluster or outside.
It started pouring rain after the install, I will take pics tomorrow.
