Ambient Light Kit - retrofit???
 
Hey all... just thought I'd pose a question since there are a bunch of peeps here smarter than me.

Has anyone retrofitted the mopar ambient light kit on a 2007 or older WK?

there quite a few threads here dealing with LED's. IMO...you can get LED's from other vendors that are much, much cheaper and just as good. But I dont know of anyone here that has used that kit.

Ya... after re-reading the documentation, it looks like it works in 2007 and prior WKs.

Dont waste your money on that kit trust me, search up neon cathodes online, I did my whole cavalier (15 12" tubes) and it was so bright, 2.99 plus shipping for each cathode, therefore cost me roughly 36 bucks plus 10 bucks for shipping 46 in total.

well worth it.

So will the kit in the first post fit my 2005 WK? There is an ambient kit for 2008-2010 so with that kit fit my 2005?

I kind of wouldn't mind paying that much. I almost bought LED strips but with the ambient kits, there is a knob to control the light intensity.

Rob, do you know if the ambient kit for the 08-10 will work in my 05? I don't see why not.

i dont see why it wouldnt work, the PDF install guide actually shows a 2005-2007 interior. 2008-2010 doesnt have a removable cupholder. you can do it for like 200 cheaper on your own.

I like the dimmer knob.

I would also like to add lights under the seats in the rear.

Are there any good after market kits with dimmer knobs?

you can get a dimmer knob from an electronics store for a few bucks and add it to any kit you make.

Even the bright ass LED strips from VLEDS?

Wouldn't I need a control module?
