So, on the 3 and 4mm bulbs, onlt the climate control has blue filters, needing white LEDs? For the ones for headlights and wipers, I need blue bulbs, correct?

Also, what about the 4wd shifter? Can that bulb be changed?

If you're going for the blue look, use blue everywhere. Don't worry about white.

And yes, the 4WD can be changed. I believe it is a simple 194 LED bulb.

Correct bulb sizes for limited zj 95

Thanks for this guide,i went ahead and re did my whole car with blue leds, for the footwells not listed here i went with these http://www.ebay.com/itm/400457012249...84.m1497.l2649 they work great. btw same bulb type as turn signals in rear of car.

the only hiccup was the headlight and rear wipers,i have a 1995 zj limited so no heated seat switch that i see but the bulbs i ordered are

Heated Seat/Rear Wiper Switch


x3 3mm neowedge bulbs

Headlight Switch

x2 3mm neowedge bulbs
x1 4mm neowedge bulb

when i took whole steering apart (which is a pia btw lol) i noticed the bulbs base of the leds were too small to turn and click in. only one fit, there are 2 bigger same size ones,1 reallly small one(which is the only one i fit- for turning interior lights on/dim) and anothr one of a different size. hard to explain exactly but basically 3 different size bulbs it appears.

has anyone done a zj limited 1995?. i need to know the bulbs sizes for the wiper switches and headlight switches. thanks.. also since a bulb does not light the ac display or above console display what i did was ordered some blue headlight tint and applied it, so its no so green,its more like an aqua now.

if anyone knows the correct led bulb sizes,please let me know.

Wouldn't white through the blue filters be brighter though? I tried red LEDs in the dash first, they were dim as hell. I'm worried that blue might not be as bright as white.

I'm thinking white for the dash and shifters, but blue for everything else. That will give me that hyper blue look.

Go for it. All I will say is that I have my dash dimmer all the way down because everything is so bright. If brightness is your concern, go for it. U will be buying standard power led's

So go with the 4 bulb LEDs, not the 6 bulb ones then?

I saw a while back that someone used green LEDs in their conversion which ended up matching the climate controls, VIC etc. Does anyone recall what LED they used or where I might find that post? I've been looking everywhere...

What bulbs did you use? And did you do the climate control/rear wipers/headlight blubs as well?

CORRECT BULBS for 1995 limited v8

Heated Seat/Rear Wiper Switch

x4 3mm Solder component neowedge bulbs ("Left" "Right" heated seat indicators, Overdrive off indicator, rear defroster activated indicator)

x3 3mm neowedge bulbs

Headlight Switch

x1 3mm solder component neowedge bulb (fog light activated indicator)
x2 3mm neowedge bulbs
x1 4mm neowedge bulb


AS A HEADS UP FOR ALL - on a 1995 grand cherokee limited this is false, you actually need 2 5mm neowedge bulbs,2 4mm neowedge bulbs,and 1 3mm neowedge bulbs. i just had to re order some bulbs since these listed in original post werent the right ones.

so its like this for 1995 GRAND CHEROKEE LIMITED V8 ...

Heated Seat/Rear Wiper Switch/OD on-off

x2 3mm Solder component neowedge bulbs , Overdrive off indicator, rear defroster activated indicator)

x1 5mm neowedge bulbs (rear wiper switch)


x2 4mm neowedge bulbs (overdrive on,rear defrost)


Headlight Switch

x1 3mm solder component neowedge bulb (fog light activated indicator)
x1 5mm neowedge bulbs (headlight turn on ROTATION area)
x1 3mm neowedge bulb (interior lights turn on switch)

I used to buy my LED lights from the site http://www.ledlightshub.com. Have you ever heard of it?

BIG ISSUE: If you have a Laredo model, the climate control does NOT take a 3 or 4 mm bulb. It uses 3 PC74 twist lock bulbs. Found that out the hard way. Now I have to send the extyra neowedge bulbs back and get those.

For Laredo, the list for the lower dash is this.

2x 3mm neowedge
1x 4mm neowedge
3x PC74 LED
