am i missing something?

I look at my dash and notice that only the top half of my indicator light are working. Turn sig. Brights, break light and 4x4 But I think that's it. So I pulled off the over and there's no bulbs let alone no sockets for the bulbs to go into on the bottom half of the light display. Is that normal? Anyones jeep do the same?

The sockets could be replaced couldn't they? Then you could just use the bulbs with new sockets?

If you can't find the sockets and I hate to say this I got mine at the stealership and a box (10) of bulbs. Don't recall how bad that one hurt though I really am glad I don't remember.

93 YJ L.E.D. dash lights - JeepForum.com

In here are several websites for dash bulbs and sockets along with an upgrade to LEDS. You buy it all and plug it in shouldn't have to wire anything just like the above post go to the dealer if you can't find the sockets and order them no wiring. Just plug and play. The light sockets plug into the display panel these are the sockets on the bulbs.
