I really like the cheap little mods I have seen people do where they change the color of their dash lights. I'm looking to do this in my XJ 97' to green but cant seem to find the specs for the bulbs.
Does anyone happen to know the specs ow where I can find the specs?
I hope its as simple as taking out the old bulbs and replacing the with the new led ones I get. If not does anyone have any tips? or Have done this mod?
Just an FYI on the lighting. If you go ahead and put LED's in the dash cluster, don't put LED's in the blinker and hi-beam sockets. Those light shine directly straight at you and are somewhat blinding when driving at night. Just sayin'.
I did this and swapped the regular bulbs back in after a couple days. I still have LED's in all the other slots. I got my white faces and LED's on eBay.

Another note, the stock 97 cluster, the blue-green tint is built into the background of the gauge. There are ways around it, one of which is to find an older TJ cluster (they are white behind.. but missing some of the lights). You can try overpowering it with enough light that it barely effects it, or you can try one of a few different kits. (Full disclosure, one of which I make)
The stock panel you have is similar to this, although this is the dummy light version.
If you are doing the LED conversion, I recommend getting ones that are rated for 9-14V, and have a heat sink. They will last the longest. They wont be cheap either.
