a little light mod
 
A little light mod while I'm working on putting the Jeep back together. Just some LED's that are connected to the interior lights. I just wanted something for when I unlock the doors.

Yeah man! I love it, I hated ricer stuff and underglow for the longesttt time, but this honestly looks good!

Did you just mount some LED strips underneath on each side and tap them into the interior lights harness? Otherwise, what was your source? A picture would make me feel a little better about splicing a harness under there haha - Looks good!

It isn't too hard to do. Here's a quick little write up for a WK:
I tapped the wires under the dash on each side, ran them down the kick panel. Under the carpet by the door sill, there is a plastic body plug, I drilled a hole through there to run the wire under the jeep. I sealed around the hole with some silicone. I then connected my LED's to those wires and used the double sided tape to stick them to the underside of the jeep.

Nice.

So that means anytime you turn on all your interior lights with the multifunction switch, they will come on?

Also, do they fade out like the dome lights?

Yep..they will turn on any time the interior lights are on and they do fade out just like the dome lights. I have white LED's in the interior too, so everything matches good.

I used 6 feet of these in cool white per side: https://www.oznium.com/thin-waterproof-ribbon

If you want to drive with the interior lights on...yes. Me, I never turn on all the interior lights while I am driving, so it was a non-issue for me. :thumbsup:

Nah....it doesn't sound like an issue at all.

A mod to look into after all my major mods are finished. I have to go under the hood after these projectors and PIAA's.
