All the information you needed to order the correct lights is in this thread. Repeated several times, in fact.

Sent from the Internet. duh.


PS, I ordered from them as well, and it was a 100% solid experience.

Yes from an I phone,
Thank you to the Internet grammar police.
Good lord.
Fact is, they have no one to talk to, just like business the old fashioned way I guess. Glad you guys have had no problems, I sure did

I may NOT look cool in my jeep, but I think i do!

Great write up way easier then I first thought. Did mine yesterday, had to go back at night to make really see how it looked. I did have to go back in and fiddle with a couple LEDs that were not lite up, contacts were not touching. I like the way it looks but the needles don't really light up cuz they are orange. thoughts?

Gotta do this one day. Also interested in the answer to the previous posters question about the needles. Do certain colors make the needles show up better?

Ok I did a little test run today on how to make my gauge needles more visual/light up with my blue lights. I have orange needles and with blue light makes a purple color which = can't see.
1. So i took my gauge cluster out again today and took it apart so I could get to my needles.
2. I ended up taking off the temp needle for this test. I used a flat head screw driver and gently popped the needle off.
3. Then I took the black little cover off the needle so I could get to all of the orange on the needle.
4. Next I took my knife and carefully scrapped off the orange off the needle.
5. After that I took my white touch-up paint I had and painted the needle where the orange had been and let it dry.
6. Since the gauge still had some tention on it when i took the needle off the only way to get it set right/close enough was to plug in the cluster and start the jeep back up and let it get to normal operating temp which is around 210. So after i let it get good and warm i reinstalled the needle so it was pointing at 210.

I just had to wait until it got dark out to see if it worked and here is what i got. the needle is way brighter!!!
\

I know that I can do the same to the oil, battery and gas gauges. mark where the needles sit when you have power to the cluster so you can put them back to the same spot when you are done but I dont want to touch the speed or rpm until I know this answer. is the post for the needle flatened on one side like a climate control knob so you can only place it back on one way?

Looks great. both of yours. I have to decide what color to do mine. The Rubi is red, so I would be tempted to go red, but my head unit is blue.

good luck with it, Oh btw i also threw in two of the same LEDs into the a/c-Heat control knobs and came up with this.. and they are the same bulbs since you wanted to know...

I wonder if i can change the bulbs in my stock cd player since those are the only green ones left.. although i do need a new head unit maybe ill go for one that puts out blue for the blue theme... lol
After reading your post I upgraded on my 2002 but I cant figure out how to remove the bulbs from the hvac control mine are just little blac round circles on the back with a flat head screw driver slot on the back

Alright im real impressed with my lights i like em a lot. My only question is on the stock bulbs when u remove them they have like an elastic covering or boot on them that you can take off, im not sure if anyone has replied to this before or asked it, but do u have to take them off and put them on the new leds? was just wondering might be a stupid question lol

I did not use the boot/covers when I did mine. IIRC, some aftermarket gauge overlays tell you to remove them to make the stock bulbs brighter
