These are electroluminescent overlays. Just fits over the existing dials. One thing though if anyone one gets them it would be smart to throw in a 12 volt regulator for 3 bucks from Radioshack. I kept trashing the transformer because of the unstable voltage swing of the Jeep. Works like a champ now.

I replaced the electroluminescent strip with a 4 inch piece of LED's tape. found below. 12 volts alread there and with this stuff you don't need a resistor because its built into it.

Well, once you get one rebuilt, its nearly two grand. It makes sense to me to buy a low mileage one at a fraction of the price.. Idk, I'm cheap, but I expect mine I just put in to last another 150k. And actually the other day on EBay I saw a brand new Mopar 45RFE. Said it was brand spanking new. So maybe they're our there, maybe not.

The shifter I used 5050 LEDs and the rest of the dash were 10mm. The door switches I used 3mm.

So, I am assuming the reddish dots are copper, and you just solder the wires to them?
