Re: Reverse light mods

I kind of did the same as they did the HID mod for the wj. I popped the socket out of the reverese slot. I then popped the center of the socket out and drilled it out so that the 9005 bulb would...

Re: Reverse light mods

I just installed high beam 9005 silverstar ultras in my reverse on my wj. Very easy mod only took me about 45 minutes. I'll check out the light output tonight to see how they look and post a pic

Re: Reverse light mods

I contemplated those. But I know they cost about the same as an HID kit, and retrofitting some 65w silverstar high beams in the reverse sockets would probably be brighter then LED bulb output.

Re: Reverse light mods

Looks good! How do you like them? Is overall output of the area behind the car very well lit? Are those just v led LED replacement 3157 bulbs?

Thanks

Re: Front Hub Replacement

Just a thought. I know autozone rents tools for free. You just have to leave a deposit. I just rented spring compressors when I did my lift. Better then buying if only using one time.

Re: WJ HID reverse lights ~~ A Different way..

I'm thinking of doing this mod or maybe adding silverstar high beam 9005 bulbs to the reverse lights. Has anyone else done either of these?

Re: Bilstein 5100 installation on 2in BB

Will you be using it for wheeling or more as a daily driver? I can say anything bigger then 255/70/17 would probably rub slightly
