Street glow under car gold kit for entering and exit of 2011 jeep
 
I have a street glow blue line kit on my current jeep that lights up under my jeep any time the dome light comes on so you see when getting in and out of the jeep. I just upgraded to a new jeep and wanted to do the same thing on my 2011 overland. I ordered a gold series street glow kit but it does not have anything saying you hook in line to the courtesy light.

are the gold series to much of a drain to do this
anyone have any ideas how I maybe able to do this or can point me to a site I only can find info on how to do this with there LED kit
Thanks for any help

I cant see how they would drain too much for the short time they are on while your doors are open!

lol Svenskajeepguy yep I kinda get what your saying but will not be using them driving down the street and the light is white light so not going to be putting any type of light shows. but yes i hear you not something you see on jeeps lol just do not want to fry my electronics putting to much when they turn on.

These are the neon they will be pulling less then 8amps since the inline fuse is 8amp.
My old jeep had a bit smaller that had 5amp fuse inline and I never had a problem with them.
Thanks again for the input

i was doing this with led strips as well. run a wire from the power wire in the foot well lighting to the engine bay. run a relay from the engine bay to the leds under the truck and the lights will only come on when your footwell light is on.

didn't get to do it yet bc a member(no names nate) took a year to get the leds:(

this will be spring time mod for me now.

If you are that worried about the drain run it thru a relay and just use the doem light to trigger the relay on.
