Wj Need LED bulbs for the dome lights in my WJ

I have a 99 WJ and I have now bought TWO sets of LEDs for my dome lights and they NEVER fit. I'm ordering the right size am I not? All my interior is LED but these. Here's a link to what I bought.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-T10-Wedge...dce82d&vxp=mtr

Please give me an ebay link as to what I should buy because I'm lost as what to do. Thanks in advance.

You'll also need a 42MM festoon bulb for the cargo area.

I just bought lots of 20 of both bulbs from Amazon for $24 shipped. They are SMD style so they should be pretty bright.

They are due Wednesday and I can update you after installing them.

Alright, a little follow up. I received the bulbs today (ordered Saturday). Got 8 42mm Festoon and 10 194. Here are the links:
42mm festoon- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
194 LED- http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

$25 shipped and I have plenty of leftovers. I had a few DOA bulbs but I've written the seller and based on how Amazon has handled my orders in the past, I know it will be made right. Just wanted to give you a heads up.

Lastly, MUCH brighter. Consider it the equivalent of the difference of going from Halogens to HIDs. I'll see if I can grab some suitable pictures.

I got these for the cargo area, put both panels inside cargo light, incredible difference...now cargo area's at least 5 X's brighter...and they're the WARM lights....which look really good...not those bizarre blue tint/hue lights ...with that gas station bathroom / bug zapper blue tint!

Granted they shipped from China (where they're ALL made) but it only took about 2 weeks before I had them....and being I got them dirt cheap..the wait was worth it.

I'm going to get some of these to replace my stock dim EVIC lights...(T-10 wedge bulbs)..then I'll be styling!

I used the website that wjjeeps.com recommended, www.superlumination.com. I used the bulb listing from wjjeeps.com to find the correct bulbs and ordered those last night. Not looking forward to having to unsolder and re-solder the bulbs in the A/C-Heater head unit, but the bulbs in the EVIC should be a breeze to replace. I have a few more to order when I make some more money. I could have bought a Rola roof rack from what I spent on LED bulbs.

I ordered LEDs from superbrightleds.com and they got here in TWO days yet shipping was only $3! Total of about $12. Anyone interested in pics now that I'm 100% LED in the overhead lights inside.

Sorry but I don't think those bulbs are going to fit Those are pretty much the same I bought and they have T10 wedges. You're going to need a T5. Which is why I had to order mine specifically from superbrightleds.com because they'll change the wedge for you so it'll fit no matter what. I'm really interested to find out if yours fit

Oh man! ... I'll find out Monday.... I searched around first and all I saw was the T10's that seemed like the fit.

Use wjjeeps.com for everything, especially bulbs. It says T5, and the T5s i ordered fit perfectly. The T10s, exact same ones you bought off of ebay didn't fit at all. The wedge was way too big, it's like you have to force it and it just wont go in.

I couldn't find where it says T5 on wjjeeps...and granted the T3 was referring to the "backlighting" so I assumed all lights in the EVIC where T3's (I want bulbs for the two "press lights"/dual dome lights.
I'll go with what you're stating about the T5's...

You all need the 194 flank style bulbs for the map lights not the wedge style.
