Hey there fellow Jeepers!

Over the last few months of owning a 2015 JK, I've tinkered around with changing the OEM "warm" white LEDs in the OEM footwell lights (they have two separate LED's - one is dim when headlights are on) AND the map lights on the Auto Dim Mirror. These LED's are on most 2012 and up Jeep JK's.

From what I could tell from google searches, I'm the only one who's figured out how to take the mirror apart to change the actual LED. A few members have reached out to me about providing a service to them - which I have, but I wanted to become a commercial member to provide this "in the open" and not feel like I'm some back channel operator (lol).

There's a pretty good chance that I can figure out how to swap out the other ambient lights in the cup holders (they're green) if that's something you desire.

There are a few color options: Red, Blue, Green, Cool White (shown in photos), Pink, Violet and Amber.

[bold]How does it work?[/bold]

You send me your boards and I swap the LEDs and send them back. Upon payment I will email you instructions on how to remove the stock circuit boards and you send them to me with a note on the color you'd like.

[bold]What's it cost?[/bold]

My fee for the work is something I've come up with the first member who inquired.

$25 for the Footwell
$50 for the Rearview

If you want to do both, there's a $10 discount so $65 for the combo.

Payment is through PayPal, and will be send via PM.

Here are some photos

I recently upgraded my interior lights to led white bulbs but it looked bad with my footwell lighting still being yellow. I didn't need the rear view mirror done only because I had switched mine when I installed the backup camera system. The led board that Mike swapped for me came out awesome. Sent him that boards and got them back a couple days later. Very happy with his work!!

Should have Willy's lights today, turns out we don't live all that far from each other.

Have yet to hear back from the other people who've asked and PM'd.

So! I've been trying to figure out how to get to the cup holder lights. I wanted to do red LEDs to match my jeep. Have you figured out how to get to these yet?

I haven't really tried yet, but the console comes apart fairly easy. Check out these videos:

http://youtu.be/sgKXt_kDKCw

Once you get to that point, you should get to the boards.

Excellent. I will take a look at these when I get out of work. Thank you.

Ok - just finished up a pile of these and sent them all out.

I should be back to regular shipping times! Sorry for the delay in those who waited a bit.

Had a request for green footwell "ambient" LED's.

Here's a pic, phone pic doesn't do it justice. Very cool, matches the cup holder LED's.

Just wanted to bump this up - longest I've gone without an inquiry, I've done quite a bit of these now.

Hmm I never notice if there is led lights coming out of mirror and cup holder. Is this standard on all models? I have 2015 JK Sport. Also, can you show a pic of the circuit board? A local shop replaced my footwell lights but I didn't like how it turned out. I'm wondering if I still have stock circuit board.

Some models don't have the autodim mirror with map lights. I have a Willy's

Here's a pic of the footwell, there's two of these in a black housing at different directions. One led is dim during headlight operation like an "ambient" light.

How do I know if I have map lights? Is there a switch? What about the cup holder? Is that standard? I think my board is white colored - they changed it? Do you need the board attached to the wire when sent? I noticed it's soldered. Can I buy the part somewhere if the aftermarket board on mine won't work or is it specific per VIN? I'm interested in white. I'm in California, if that helps somewhat.

There are two footwell led boards per side. One lights up when the door is open the other provides "mood light" when the headlights are on.

While the stock color is white, it's a warm white. I solder replacement LED's to whatever color you want - the most common is a higher wattage cool white LED. You'll send me the entire module from each side and I'll send them back.

I'm not really sure of part numbers honestly.

Your mirror is autodim if you see a green LED on the face at night and it gets darker when there are lights behind you. It has map lights if there are two windows on the bottom with two on/off buttons. It'll look like this picture.

Thank you! I don't have map lights. I thought autodim was like the side mirrors where the mirror is somewhat darker. My footwell lights only light up when doors are open. Not sure if mood lights are standard. So there's a clip to remove the board with the wire or does it detach from the wire? I thought I saw a green light in my cup holder but can't really say. I'll order cool white for what I have in footwell once I figure out how to remove it.
