Yj interior lighting

If you have a yj wrangler you obviously know its to dark in there at times to see anything if it wasn't for the little light the dash gives off well I'm looking into purchasing 4 of these rampage led lights that go strapped into the roll bars can anyone tell me if these are worth the purchase or is there a better solution to getting light into the jeep?

I have a stick on led bar that was like $15 and it works great. autozone has them in all colors, i used white.
Not sure if this is the exact one I have but it works better than any dome light ive ever had http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...ier=60049_0_0_

Have any pictures you can upload? Also wouldn't that be a little difficult since its not a switch but more of a button that you have to hold?

well the one I have isnt battery powered, its wired in to the circuit for dome light so you can just hit that switch. mine is stuck on my hardtop, it will stick to bottom of rollbar too I suppose. no pic atm. could stick one under dash or just about anywhere

www.xkglow.com motorcycle lights. You can contact them here as a vendor on the forum. Should be a discount.










Plenty of light and it is wired into the stock switches.


Edit: Here's the exact link

I opted for four of the amber lights along with the ten white lights and did this

Would just like to add to this. 8 dollar led strip and like 5 dollars worth of wires and crimps. Already had a switch set up and they just needed to be plugged in

I know i know they are not perfectly straight but they are above my head and i wont notice it.


Then a long 30" strip on the roll bar. Cut little holes and ran the wiring under the padding.

Here's a cheap way of getting more light. Put 1156 bulbs in your under dash lights instead of 89. They put out more light than the 89s. You shouldn't pop a fuse but if you do no matter what DONT PUT A BIGGER ONE IN! (I've seen people do this way too many times) I have had mine in for a while now no problems. The alternative is to put led 1156 bulbs in. Same light less wattage, no fuse concerns. Forget wiring up some fancy led expensive alternative, utilize the stock running lights and try this. Trust me I have PLENTY of light.

Any pics of this and how the lighting looks? Thanks.

I did the dash led light change with Red Leds. It's super simple and easy. I had one larger type super bright led that would not fit into the back of the heater/ac control unit. I ended up cutting the plug off and extending it, drilling a hole in the underside of the dash, using a wire hole gasket thing with fingers so it holds the led in place. It's dead center above the bell housing, shifter and 4wd shifter. It's bright as hell but because it red it doesn't effect my eyes when driving at night what so ever. For above lighting I actually don't have anything and now that I see that above led strip on the speaker bar I like it alot, great job on that.

I did LED replacements in the gauges and 2 LED strips from Autozone under the dash. I have plenty of light in the front of the cab but it's not overbearing. I plan on installing 2 more LED strips in the rear cargo area as well once I complete my Monstaliner job.

Under dash wired to lighted rocker switch (old style KC green light right above CB mic) :


Dash gauges:



At dusk... still bright enough to be seen:

Thanks. Just a cheap $10 nylon holster (Bulldog IIRC). It was a pain trying to drill through the metal belt clip but I eventually got through. After that I just used some plastic anchors pushed into the dash and bolted the clip in. Slide the holster onto the clip and slid a cotter pin at the top of the clip to keep it tight against the dash. Had to do it this way before I got my CCDW. Holster is still there and still gets used though.
