Yeah no problem at all. The folks at SuperBrightLED's are very helpful and their prices are not bad at all. You can do the dome and footwell lights for less than $20 The dash lights are around $3 each and I believe I need 7 of them.
If anyone knows the exact stuff to order for a 97 I would appreciate it. I have in the cart thus far
7 #74's high powered in red
1 # 74 high powered in blue for the high beam light.
2 #67-x15 for the footwell lights
1 #4410-x9 for the hardtop dome light
1 #WLED-xHP5 for the sound bar dome light
Mine is a 2002, 5 behind the gauge cluster, 3 on the HVAC controls. The guage pod isn't difficult to get out to double check before you order. With mine it reset the trip meter when i disconnected it. I use the trip to tell me when it's time for an oil change, so write that number down before you pull the plug if you need it.
It takes a while but browse through the thread. a ways back someone posted a pic of the back side of the gages and circled which bulbs you need to replace
War does not determine who is right, it determines who is left.
either way 999 does me no good, might as well just use it to estimate mileage now. lol
Oh wel, maybe I will get around to ordering the led's one of these days. Still working gradually on the regular maintenance stuff I need to do since I just bought it. Fluids, spark plugs, all that good stuff. After taxes i should be able to get the led's though. Probably doing red.

Just replaced the interior Dome lights and footwell lights with red L.E.D on my 97.
I ordered them from SuperBright and it looks awesome.
Mine has a hardtop with a dome light in it so I swapped that out as well.
Total of 4 L.E.D's and here are the part #'s
2 67-x15: 15-LED BA15S bulb 67-R15: Red $4.95
1 4410-x9: 578 LED Bulb - 9 LED Festoon 4410-R9: Red $2.49 (HARDTOP DOME LIGHT)
1 WLED-xHP5: 194 LED Bulb - 5 SMD LED Wide Angle Wedge Base WLED-RHP5: Red
Install took under a minute and my Jeep looks like its on defcon 4 or some kind of hunt for red october submarine. Cheap Fun bro's!! love it!
Can anyone point me in the direction of how to do the other L.E.D's behind the dash
"..in under 20 minutes" as you guys have stated? I keep finding tutorials that seem way too extensive (steering wheel, airbag etc)
I really appreciate all of your help guys. Did the L.E.D swap and it went off no problem. I'd had the dash apart once before but this time I really had no problems. The pics do not do it any justice.
I also swapped the high beam bulb for a blue l.e.d from superbright. Looks really good. I did however make one mistake. I need a new clockspring and this has my airbag light set off. I saw this light had a bulb and decided to pull it. And thus my seatbelt light is now on No big deal I can make some adjustments tomorrow.
Just an idea also. I got a gage face cover off eBay for $20 because I liked the look better than just changing the bulbs and it matched the led's I put in the air vents.
I really like this. I did amber in the dash and hvac in august because of the yellow jeep, but for christmas santa brought me a red sony headunit, so now I want it all to match. I love the way that cover looks, and here's my question(s):
1: does it have its own lights, or does it use the light from the dash? I know its probably a stupid question, but on the page a pic shows it having what looks like a wire running to it, so just making sure.
2: do you have to have red leds? If I need to change over to red I'll do it, but if I can just put the cover on it and not change them, I'll just take the lazy route.
The guage face itself has illumination (glows). The only thing the cluster bulbs illiminate are the needles.
I eventually got rid of mine and went with LEDs. I had continued issued with the face raising up under the needles and the needles getting hung up. It takes very little friction to keep the needles from moving. A wed site that sold face, per thir installation tip said to use rubber cement under the face which is a good idea and I did do that but over time and as the temperature changed, it came up aroung the needle hole. I worked crazy glue under the face around the hole with a toothpick a number of times but gave up after a while.
Also note (I did not look at the link), a lot of the gauge face sellers indicate 97-06 but 97-02, 03-06 are different. Most if not all of the faces are for 97-02. The check engine went to a symbol and moved 03-06. I did some creative modification to make it work with my 03.

how do i install wire these into the dome lights is it the white plug an adapter into the led?
I think it's just what you decided to work on top of that's making it confusing. I have never dealt with these but it seems as though you have the old style regular light bulb base that you plug in And just hook your new LED wires up to the wires comin out of the old school bulb bottom looking thing. (My apologies for the intelligent vocabulary in previous post)

Looks good! I also replaced the high beam bulb with a blue LED. Looks really good so I am going to replace the turn signal bulbs with green LED's, the 4x4 with yellow etc. My slider bulbs are not as bright as I would like and have to think through what I would like to do to make those pop.
For the dome light on the hardtop I found a clear cover for it on Ebay, $15. I bought it saturday and it arrived, from california, on monday afternoon.
A must if you're doing the hardtop dome.

Lol yeah accounting can be confusing!
It was just the white adapter wedge type to the led lights. Fitments is an issue and i might try and find a single wedge style led instead and put these in my durango or at the footwells. anyone know of the wedge style number to be used in the dome lights? superbright leds doesnt seem right to me it says i have festoon style and i know its not. my hardtop has the festoon but that light doesnt work.

I know this has been covered repeatedly, so I apologize in advance. I have a 2004 with manual, so don't need the automatic shifter light. I just don't want to order, send back, etc. When I look at the superbrightled web site, there are two types of lights listed for dash light replacement. One is the 194 and the other the 74. The 194 does not have the sockets, but I assume (yeah, I know what that means) you pull the bulbs from the original socket and plug in the new ones. The 74 bulb does come with the socket.
So which do I need? How many of each to do the instrument cluster and HVAC.
Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Sometimes the sheer volume of a post like this can be confusing, as people find different ways to skin the cat. Then the info on the web site, while clear, doesn't provide a lot of insight. I will proceed accordingly.
So I got on the superbrightled web site. Found the 74 bulb fine, but the neo4mm is not listed. I've seen people's order sheets with them listed, so I wonder if there has been a change. Perhaps I should call them. Everyone says they are very helpful.
