Re: Amber rear turn signals (Euro parts?)

I would think that with this module and the Curt trailer wiring harness, a person could create a 'plug and play' type setup that would allow you to be able to have amber turn signals (in place of the...

Hmmm...
Thinking about making something like that myself.

I have a canvas supplier here in the Twin Cities.

Re: Alternator Recall

The P60 recall only affects select V6 models.
Notifications already went out.
I have a V6 and was in recently for something else and they checked, did not affect my vehicle.

Re: New (Aug 9, 2013) Software Update MyGIG RBZ-RHB 50.00.07

Re: Jeep Tail lights Halogen to LED ???

I don't know of any vehicle that uses 'halogen' bulbs for the tail lights.

Re: LED Switchbacks for 2014 Laredo

The 2012 model lists the front marker/turn signal as a 7443 amber bulb.
You should reference your owner's manual to confirm if the 2014 uses the same bulb.
