Pics of my WJ's Interior V-LEDS set up, including the doors too.
 
Long time due, I know.
Well today is raining and decided to get the WJ in the garage and finish up my V-LEDS interior set up.
I had it all pretty much complete except the door lights. To change the door lights to V-LEDS wasn't so simple as some mondification needed to be donein order to get the base of the LED into the socket and I also had to modify the base also so it can make contact with the terminals in the little blue socket.

I didn't have my regular camera with me so I had to take pics with my cell, I hope they came out good, but you'll get the idea.

Has anyone else here have put the V-LEDS on the WJs doors?

Here are the pics...
Ohh yeah, the jeep is dirty and is raining, I'll take more pics when the jeep is clean and with my regular camera.

I agree Nate, I think they look great too, the pics don't do its justice, they look much better in person. Definitely worth the $$$.
I've been good bro, how about you?

Here are some more pics showing how I modified the bulb base and socket for it to fit.

First I opened up two small holes at the base of the bulb.

Then I took two pieces of wire to tie into the two holes I opened up.
You can see I took the two pieces of wire strand and twisted them together.

Here they are tie into the base...

Next I had to open up the thin slot on the socket for the thicker base from the V-LED bulb to go in. I used a small drill to take some plastic out from the sides.

Here's the bulb and socket together and with the wires tied on the socket side terminals finally making contact.

Here is into the housing.

This is were I got the wire strands from.

There might be a simpler way to do it, but I had the above wire and tools handy and did it like that.
It might help someone else doing this mod, especially on the doors.

BTW, no need to take out the bulb housing from the door, I did for the picture only. Just get the socket out.
