I still haven't taken mine apart, again. I was going to dremel it away at work... but if someone has success with the green tint, I'll just do that and have a really really really bright red HVAC.

I have just received my Red LED's and 1 blue one for the high beam. The install was easy. The Red looks good
The Blue LED for the high beam I have a problem with. I have tried every combination and I still can't get it to work. If i put it in one way it wont light up at all if I turn it around it comes on and it stays on until i turn the high beam's ON that's when the light goes off!! It even stays on after you remove the keys!! I have tried to put back the stock globe but that doesnt work at all now!! Very frustrating that a simple thing can give you such a .......Any ideas guys?

I just left my high beams alone. They're blue enough for me.

Definitely send them an email. They've got pretty good customer service from when I was asking questions.

Your stock bulb is a T89 in the floorboard (at least it is in my 97 TJ). Look up the T89 on the site and you'll find several variations you can use.

I have an aftermarket soundbar/light so I can't address the dome light.

Talked with Tracy at superlumination and the backlog is now filled and they have plenty of stock. So if you were waiting for stock to arrive, it is there (according to her (or him)).

You can PayPal me later for finding that.

After reading for an hr and 27 pages, this is a good find... not just here, but for several forums.

I finally got my superwhites in. Looks really nice and clean. BTW, I have a 97 with the dash light switch pullout instead of the control stalk. I can say that my dimmer DOES WORK. Now, it doesn't affect that much, but it DOES fade the lights a bit if I turn it down. Even with these lights at full brightness, it is not harsh at all, just VERY crisp and clean.

I've THOUGHT about taking a red sharpie to the needles to give them some good color w/o affecting their weight and to have red needles, but I'm not exactly sure how they light up and wonder if by coloring them, they'd not light up.













With the other parts of the dash...



I can't say I'm too worried about the greenish hue to the HVAC. My ARB lights are not as blue as my stereo so the color of the HVAC looks fine to me. No complaints.

i know its a pain in the arse, but have your tried switching in one of the other LED's? i had a problem with one of mine b/c the little metal prong kept getting bent sideways when i plugged it in. Just a suggestion.
