I decided to go for it.
I wanted red led for the footwell to come on when headlights are on.

Remove both of these from footwell.

Cut into the two wires like so.

The light am connecting to is for when the headlights are on.
The other light is for when the door is open.

I soldered but you can use posi lock tap if you would rather not solder.


If you solder tape up your connections.
And remount light.
I searched for this mod and had no luck finding much info.
I figured I would help a jeeper out.
I don't get all technical I call it like I see it.
Post if you need answers.

The factory footwell light?
Yes they just unclip to remove.
And the new leds I bought unclip also so if they burn out you won't have to rewire anything just buy new lights and plug them in.

Nice look, however I'm a little confused.

What do you mean by "The light am connecting to is for when the headlights are on.
The other light is for when the door is open."

Are there two lights?

There's two lights in that one harness one is for when the door is open it lights up the footwell like the dome light comes on when the door is open and the other light is on when you have your headlights on.
So there is two actual lights in the footwell and you can tap into the one u want to use.
If u tap into the one that comes on when doors open then the led strip will come on only when door is open.
If u tap into the other light it's like a running light it's on when headlights come on.
I at nite I have a red light on in the footwell.
Make sense?
Kinda Hard to explain

I did the similar mod, but use only two led lights on each side. One super white for when unlock/open door and one green for dim light when driving at night. I stick the led over the stock led to cover it.

If you do what I did you won't need anything.
I kept the stock lights see the pics I just spliced into the wires I didn't want to cut anything Stock out at the time.
If I were to do it again I would just cut the stock light out and use the wires for my led instead of splicing into the wire.
Make any sense?

I need to add a led to shine on the shifter area. Just got use to the shifter being lit up after having it for 9 years in my previous vehicle.

Does this kit do all the different colors or just the red?

Do you think i could take out another cable to light up the rear seats? that would make from the front drivers side two led bars, one for the front one for the rear... ( the same in passengers side) im guessing i could overcharge the circuit...

Seems like a dumb question but where are the footwell lights located exactly? My 2012 Sport does not have any lights in the footwells so I'm curious if the previous owner removed them for whatever reason or if they're not OEM until sahara/rubicon packages

LED's take such little juice I would bet it wouldn't be an issue.

Very nice! Good idea making them able to be unplugged to replace.
