my floor LEDs stay dim when driving and stay on for a couple minutes after the car is off and door is shut. but I guess it's fine as long as they don't stay on overnight in my garage.
I had also replaced the glove box, trunk, and license plate lights as well.

Got my eBay kit in.

Super easy, except for trunk light, but not because of the LEDs - Jeeps interior molding.

Check the difference (during the day)

Looks awesome. Definitely going to replace mine. I've been looking, just haven't found a kit that makes it easy.

This kit is very tempting... perhaps, why this is so cheap compared to V-leds for example, which are 14$ or more for a pair ?

Is it because they are not high power leds ? or they are not as brighter ? or they last not very long ?

what do you think ?

Also, do you know if they are 6K or 5K white ?

I'm not sure if they are 6K or 5K, but I can tell you that they are definitely home-made. They are however good quality and well constructed. I will try and post a photo of an individual LED Bulb when I get the change.

I just received my kit from ebay and installed the lights. This kit is amazing. I was hesitant at first, but after putting them in, they're amazing! It took me approximately thirty minutes to install. I had one blub that was bad, and have contacted the seller to return it. Other than that, no problems with it.

I did see in earlier posts that several members were questioning whether or not the LED's dim or not. After installing my kit, my lights dim as normal. There are no chances except that these lights are super-bright and really make the inside look good.

Look real good nick. Those regular bulbs are miserable. The LED's make such a HUGE difference.

I received an email from the company I ordered (southcoastparts) my LED bulbs from. After speaking with them, they are going to send me a new LED blub for the one that didn't work. So far I am very happy with this product and the service I received. Upgrading most of my vehicle to LED blubs has been a very good upgrade.

Just ordered and installed these as well. Very easy and bright. I'm happy! I took the metal heat shield out and the reflector in the fronts.

I am having trouble getting my rear light covers to install correctly. Each time I try they are loose. Any advice?

LED Interior

I did a kit from southcoastparts.com as well(footwell, glovebox, 2-map, 1-cargo, 2-passenger) - purchased from the world wide garage sale(eBay). Also installed 2 sealed led's from Sylvania on the rear plate. Total instal time was less than 30mins, ZERO problems. the difference is instant, and fantastic.
