Replacing interior lighting to LED's?
 
I'm trying to replace my dome lights, RR and RL door lights and back cargo lights with LED's. I have been using this website as a reference but finding a place to buy with the exact specifications is really tough. http://www.wkjeeps.com/lamps/wk_lamps.htm

Has anyone done this before? Does anyone know the exact mm of the 578 lamp to use in the dome. I want them bright white not yellow same with the W10 and 579 in the rear. Also, any suggestions on a good 6000K HID fog lamp replacement kit for the 9145? I read omlet's post in another thread but diddn't know where to get them.

Thanks again,
Joe

Full interior replacement LEDs.. comes out cheaper than you would get them at an auto part store.

www.hidnation.com

VERY cheap HID kits and they work perfectly. Had mine for over a year now with absolutely no problem. You're going to need the relay though.

I had replaced all interior light to LED, they look wayyy better, especially the dome light, but I can't remember which size, and also you have to remove the reflector. the LED in the trunk area is very useful and bright too

Just got done doing the dome.

Look good?

KK-- I did end up removing the reflector or else it just wouldn't of fit. Thanks for the advice bro!

That looks awesome! I'd be interested in seeing some night pics of how much they light up the interior :2thumbsup:

Hemiwk05 10-06-2011 03:49 PM

Thanks Rak, they are actually almost overkill. They light up the interior during the daytime. I payed wayyy to much for them becuase im impatient. 24.99 each at autozone. total rip off but they are really bright and come with the necessary hardward to mount in with the 578.

Rak187INF 10-06-2011 06:06 PM

Haha, you can see the difference by looking in the passenger floor area

Did it take long? And is it a simple "Change the Bulb" routine?

TurboDiesel 10-07-2011 06:01 PM
