Tom95YJ I changed all of my gauge lights, and hvac bulbs to led in my 89 YJ the other night.
The bulbs I had used were T10 wedge's with 5 chips per bulb

JJYJ 194 fits an 87. I have those in blue. Sometimes I think just clear would look better with a white jeep with white gauges.

Yes. As long as they are #194 they work fine although IMO the 360 degree bulbs are the best for this application.

Prolly would've been fine with just the washers tho.

wasomma Double check before you bite off on these, I think for your year you need the 90 degree ones because of potential hot spots but I could be wrong. These are the ones in green that are 360 degrees
