Here's my cool white LEDS.


I even put one in for the high beams, it's not quite as bright as the picture.





HVAC




dome lights



and under the dash!

Is the high beam light not included with the original count? I think I'll do red lights but put the white behind the high beam marker

You need 6 instead of the origanal count of 5 if you plan on doing the high beam also.

I put the red lights into my HVAC controls and a little bummed because they are really dim and can barely see anything. Anyone else have a similar issue? But I love the lights in instrument cluster!!!!

Are you sure all of them are working? There polarized so you may have to flip them to actually work.

Got mine in yesterday and installed them today. The blue looks great and was very easy to do.

These look sweet and it sounds like something I could accomplish! I'm thinking about blue but it looks like they don't do a great job of lighting up the needles in the dash and such... Could some more ppl post pics of theirs (blue, green, etc)? Thanks!

Have you checked your junk folder? I got an email telling me it was shipped and within that email was a link that allowed tracking of the package.

got mine installed today, good thing i ordered 1 extra of each lol, one of the bulbs for the gauges didnt work, i did the HVAC controls as well but its to bright outside to see if they all work yet, VERY easy to install awsome find thanks!!!!





EDIT- also for the people who had some dim spots, just flip the bulbs around and they should work, if not the bulb is bad mine had 2 dim spots when i put it in the first time, flipped them around and got 1 to work and used my extra bulb on the other and it started to work as well, GL!

just upload the pic to like facebook or something and then go to it, right click on the photo, go to properties, then where it says Address (URL) copy all of that, then back on wranglerforum click the tab that looks like a mountain with a yellow backround above where you are typing in your msg, and paste the URL there, if it pops up with a red "X" you need to erase the "http://" that comes pre-typed into the box that pops up when you click on the mountain with a yellow backround... sounds complicated how i explained it but its easy lol!

For anyone with a 97 or 98 TJ with the slider style HVAC control
...

You will need a total of 7 of the 74-xHP Wedge Base LED Bulbs. (5) for the speedometer and (2) for the HVAC.

Unless you plan on changing out rocker switches for the accessories you won't need to order any NEOx-x bulbs.

You, too? As previously posted, I have the slider HVAC with only 2 lights and installed the reds, so I have even fewer bulbs than those who have 3 bulbs for newer vehicles. Pretty dim compared to the rest of them. First thing I did was to check they were lit.

Maybe it's the thickness of the white paint on the HVAC control? Think I'm just going to live with it until I get froggy again one day.
