well im looking to put red LED lights for my dash. wondering if its as simple as buying a few bulbs and taking out the old one replacing them with the new ones... im completely clueless so any help would be appreciated. this is being done on a 95 yj. thanks for any help
No, you don't have to do anything else when you change to the LED lights. I had installed some of the white face gauge covers on another YJ and thought they looked nice. I read the info on the website and it states that if you use LED lights don't use the white face gauge covers. So, my bad for suggesting them.
I'm using red LEDs to match the head unit Red color. Things show up just fine with the stock gauges. I've though about doing the blue one side, red other side LED for the speedometer and tachometer so you get this blue fade to purple fade to red look on the gauge face, just haven't gotten around to it yet, but yeah, the red ones are just fine.
I also use red ones and can see everything just fine. Although I have Autometer Phantom II's for all the gauges except the speedo and tach. I'm cheap so I ordered a bunch of LED's on eBay that came from China, I think I got all I needed plus extras for less than $15 including shipping.
