Leds aren't like light bulbs... when they turn on, the have no internal resistance so there is resistor in line that limits the current going through it. The same LED will work with 1V or 1000V just depending on the value of the resistor.

If you wanted to do the work, you could always change the resistors and make them work for 12V. Assuming that you can take them apart and get to the resistors and unsolder them then solder new ones in. Resistors are cheap.

I'm sure they'd light up on 12V but prolly not bright enough to use as brake lights in the daytime.

If I'm not mistaken, those are Kascar-style housings...and according to an article I've seen on the web, they can be had in 12- or 24-volt configurations, and also with either LED or conventional bulbs.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process.

I would just order some from truck lite that come in 12 volt. Looking at the price on ebay, just pay what truck lite wants and you don't have to figure out how to make them work. and you will save a few bucks.

Are you going to run the black outs? I don't know why you would, but it would be a nice touch. Telling you from experience, the first things to go on those lights......the ground. For reason from standard bulb to LED, they always failed at the ground. Replaced a lot of those in Iraq. I have some 24V 7" Headlamps my shop foreman let me swipe before I got on the bird back in Al Kut. Still don't know how I'm going to wire those up. I'm not changing my system to 24V. But I can't let these go to waste. Just too nice.
