Jessica08 Mine dim as well but not that big of a difference. I always keep mine on the brightest setting so that doesn't affect me any.

97WranglerOhio Well mine do. Don't know what to tell ya there.

They do dim but not as much as the stock bulbs.

Did I order the wrong ones or do you keep the old base & just replace the actual bulb? I ask because I didn't want to start tugging on the old ones & ruin them. Thanks!
Yes, just replace the bulb

Justin2000TJ Awesome! I appreciate it very much.
That is what it served like, but I hated to just start pulling because I know nothing about it.
09-10-2014 10:28 PM
97WranglerOhio The brown base is just a holder for the bulbs. Pull the old ones out and pop the new ones in. Easy peasey.

Easiest dash I've ever seen to take apart. Affordable and super easy to do ALL interior lights. Only took a couple days to get them from Superbrightleds. Not to mention the extra gas mileage I'm getting from switching to LED! lol

They come out a darker green in real life. The phone camera keeps wanting to add too much yellow. That's what you get trying to photograph LEDs. Plenty bright though and I'm glad the jeep has white needles. Just looks so good.

ohh ok. yeah it's not to bad as far as mods go plus their good quality and have a warranty. I've bee busying SBL for the last 5yrs an they're never disappointed! haha I am too! at restaurants I don't decide untill everyone else has ordered and the waiter is asking me what I want lol!!

did you get them and install them yet? I ordered blue lastnight, plus some other stuff like reverse lights, my auto trans indicator light, dome and the foot well lights

Blue

NYjeeper_TJ Thinking of doing this my self to my 02. Can you change all the lights in the dash as in. Seat belt light. Brake light. To match the rest of the blue?
08-29-2014 11:10 AM
flowerfistandbestialwail HA - nevermind. Had this page subbed so long I clearly skipped reading the top of this very page. Sorry folks, didn't mean to be ~that~ person
08-29-2014 11:07 AM
flowerfistandbestialwail Sorry if this has been asked already - anyone know which light specifically I need for behind my automatic shifter? It's a real dull orange and I want to swap that out while I'm at it.
