I'm sorry I didnt take picture on how to take the dash cluster out but.I did take a picture of the back of the cluster and which 5 bulbs were replaced.I ordered 6 lights just in case.

Tools I used were

Flat Screwdriver
#2 Philips Screwdriver
1/4" drive Rachet and a 1/4"socket
Needle nose pliers (fingers wouldnt reach to turn the bulb bases)

I don't go to jeepforum.

I just checked that link since you said something and there is only 11 pages. My account is setup for 40 posts per page. Not the forum default.

I have done that on mine too, but I went with super white. These were all 1 second exposures, so if there is any wiggle, that would explain it.

Some have mentioned not being able to use their dimmer. On my 97, the dimmer works just fine with these. Mine never worked all that much (ie I couldn't tell much difference between full bright and full dim, even with the regular bulbs), but it does adjust it a bit. The nice thing about the white is that even at full bright, it is not overpowering at all, just very clean.

I had considered the blue, as my stereo and switches are all blue, but I thought I'd get sick of looking at it after a while. I didn't want red, though if I could find a way to color my needles red and still have them light up, I'd do it. So white it was.

Here ya go.











Yes, I did this with the power all off, just pulled the lever to turn on the dashes, so no smartass comments about low RPM's, no gas, or battery or oil pressure. :p
