floor lighting mod help
 
hey! okay so i want to change my floor lights so that they are red... any ideas on doing so? i cant find and red bulbs

Sounds awesome. If its easy I'd like to do the same!

BUMP!

ive thought about coloring the lights red with a sharpie but idk if the heat of the bulb would burn it off. worth a try i guess

Replace with red leds. I thing I still have a picture in my garage.

jeepwrangler0 02-15-2013 09:02 PM

I just put red led strips and stuck them to the back wall, then hooked up a switch so I can control when they are on/off

I did take those pictures out of my garage so here you go. I also did the dome light and the gauges in red LEDs.

This is what I did but with white. Looks great for an autozone mod

ya the lights are there and they are on.. cool so leds will just fit into that same socket! awesome!

There's at least 2 different styles of footwell lights.

On mine, the white covers just pop off. I have wedge bulbs but some TJs have screw-ins.

If you have wedge bulbs, the LEDs are polarity specific. ie they will only work one way.
So if they don't work, pull them out and turn them around.

I got these ones in green

Search Results For "921-x12" | LED Products | Super Bright LEDs

But check your bulbs - you may need a different style.

i think that bulb will work on mine but let me go check.. if so that is perfect thanks!

jeepwrangler0 02-16-2013 08:20 AM

I unscrewed the little lamp assembly (one screw) and cut the wires. I bought some 6 LED strips at AutoZone and wired them up. They came with 3M tape on them so I stuck them on the firewall. Tuck away the wiring and done. Looks great and puts out a lot of light at night when you need to find something.
