fyi for anyone looking for dash light sockets

After doing some searching, I found a great price on the napa ls6225 socket. I was not about to pay $6.27 a socket so I found these online. Please follow the link. they look to be the exact same as the napa sockets. These are for the gauge lights by the way.

http://www.amazon.com/JT-Products-2563F-Universal-Miniature/dp/B002UZUC5Q/ref=lh_ni_t

and they are snap in 5/8 hole and accept the 53 bulb.
I just ordered 8 of these.

Did these work well? Were they are good replacements and are you able to feed the stock wire into the new socket and crimp a new terminal in them?

You have to get rid of the "http://www.fyurl.com/rr.php?site=www.jeepforum.com&url=" for the link to work.
