Looks Nice with the color match!!!
Great Job
Can't tell from the pics, did you sand the fenders smooth or leave the texture??

You want pictures...I gots some pictures....LOL I love these things but wiring issues, football, and beer did not allow me to take the jeep out to play. But here are mmy install and finals...Sorry I cant get them to resize and there are a few so it may take up some room. BTW they are the Gen I's.













I did over drill the pushins so I improvised and used the bolts and plastic flare nuts to mount them to the fenders. I kinda like it a bit better. More industrial look. I did not put the MCE decal on since I only got one but Mike if you don't mind I would like to have a buddy of mine make a set using the same green I have on my hood and windshield decals.

I had a nightmare of a time trying to wire mine. I tried using something called magic blinkers for motor cycles to convert from regular to LED and those didn't work.

Everytime we would hook the side marker to the turn and parking light wires they would work as markers but freak the heck out and both flash like hazards when turning left or right and the odo would flash as well. We tried for about 10 hours to get them working correctly. I even had the #26 flasher relay installed the whole time (didn't know that when I replaced it 6 years ago I had gotten that one).

We finally wired them so the front lights are turn signals and the sides are markers.

Mike, who's Red Jeep is that in your pictures? I would like to know how they wired their 3/4 LEDs to get them to work right.

Looks great guys thanks for the pics and the orders!


Zac - What trail is that at Walker Valley? It has been years since I have been up there.

Dave - Where did you go Jeeping, looks like Naches?



Chris (Diverdown) - Of course it is ok to make some stickers with the matching green. I've thought about offering the MCE stickers in other colors as well in the future. If you do get the matching green, I'd be interested to see how they look on your Jeep. Also, if you need more of the standard b&w MCE stickers I can send them to you. Thanks. Also, sorry about the wiring. That red Jeep belongs to 47cj2a on this board, but he is working out of the country for a few more weeks so he might be slow to reply to any questions, just FYI. However, I know how he wire them up:

On the 3 wires heading to the front facing parking/turn light, find the one which supplies power for the parking light function, and then the one which supplies power for the blinker. Splice a length of wire into both of these wires to head up to the LED's. The parking light wire needs to have a 560 Ohm resistor installed/soldered in, as well as a rectifier diode. The blinker wire needs just a rectifier diode. Then, connect/solder the blinker and parking light wires together to make a single positive wire to go to the positive side of the LED. Run a ground wire from the LED ground to the ground wire on the Jeep. (If running 2 LED's per side, after this is set up for 1 LED on a given side of the Jeep is made, another set of + and - wires can be spliced to go to the other LED on the same side)

What this basically does is convert the 2-wire (single function) LED into a 3-wire (dual function). The resistor on the parking light wire will make the LED come on to about 1/2 - 2/3 or so intensity for the parking light function. This is still more than bright enough, they can be easily seen in the daylight still. Then, when the blinker is turned on, the LED will flash to full intensity (if the parking lights are on, it will blink from ~2/3 intensity to full intensity, back to ~2/3 intensity, and so on.) Adding the rectifier diodes BEFORE the parking and blinker wires are joined together will allow electricity to flow in ONLY 1 direction, wich will prevent backfeeding. (Backfeeding is what was causing your odometer to change intensities when flashing) Parts for making these wiring modifications are about $5 or less, but unfortunately it is something that has to be done to make the little LEDs function both as a parking light and turn signal.


Here is a good write up I found, which has part numbers and everything. This gentleman made his into a small circuit board, but you can also do this via in-line wiring.


Hope this helps explain things, let me know if you have any questions.



Thanks,

Mike

Thanks Mike for the info on the wiring.

Brad had sent me a link for magicblinkers which look like a CMOS battery with 3 wires for the harness pigtail and 1 wire for the lights. From what their instructions said you use the common ground from the harness for the led's and the single wire for the hot to them. But they didnt work. I blew 6 fuses for the parking lights and 1 for the flashers.

So needless to say I gave up and wired them up so the fronts flash and the sides mark.

Oh and definately count on pictures of your decals in the green when I get them. I think I will use the single one for the back window on my jammer. Gotta advertise a killer product!

Yes! Love the Cheeze. Camped at Long Meadow, ran Naches Pass and parts of Kaner.

Had a great time, fenders worked perfect.

I have them and LOVE them. I get many comments about them, and I love the way they flex and never show it.

Cool, looks like a fun trail that I can't remember if I ran before. It's been so long since Walker Valley I might need to head up there one of these days.

I hear you on the fuses, a while back when we

were experimenting with the wiring, there were several fuses blown and backfed. Luckily the TJ's wiring seems to be very resilient, once the wiring was corrected everything worked normally.

Thanks on the pics, looking forward to them!

Sweet, Naches/Manastash is our favorite place to wheel! The scenery, challenge, and weather are all great (well, usually on the weather). Whistlin' Jacks over there is one of my favorite places to stop, many good Jeepin' memories there.

How was Kaner, is it getting slick yet? Did you make it to Ardvark hill?
