Superbrightleds.com for the interior lights. The dome lights have festoon bulbs, and the courtesy lights use 194's on the doors and ba-15's under the dash.

The festoon's I used were the 4410-x9, they were a tad bit long... but they still work
I used the WLED-x5 for my 194 spots
and for the BA-15's i used the 24 led 1156 bulbs they have.

For the glovebox lights I went to oznium.com and used the superflux leds, and same for the litte cig lighter.

You can use http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProd...lacementGuide/ for a bulb reference to your vehicle.

Basically I tried to choose ones that would work best in the spots I had them.
If you look at the degree of the angle of light output it helps. For instance the festoons I got but out 30 degrees angle of light... so I got them because in my Jeep I got two little dome lights side by side, so I figured it would cover at least 60 degrees shining down, if not more.

Overall I'm pretty satisfied with them, they are bright at night and I can even see spots during the day that I used to not be able to see.

OH and all mine are a cool white color.

As of today, 6/16/10 .... My HIDs are still waiting to be shipped. The company I ordered them from has been receiving around 500 orders a day, so they are a little behind. They should ship out tomorrow and if they do I would expect them here by mid next week. For $95 for two kits and the ballasts I can't really even start to complain about shipping.

I'm still looking at lift kits. Parents really dislike the cost of a 4 inch lift.. but I'm trying to do my best. I'm weighing all my options and getting pricing locally and from online sources then I'll make a decision. Unfortunately my parents have final say... but who knows what will happen.

I'll keep you all posted!

6/23
Ok so I'm taking a lunch break right now before I start on the HID's. It's hot out...

Anyways, I wanted to put the blue shifter light and 4wd shifter lights in first.
I got two High Power SMD 120 degree 194 bulb's in blue.
They are bright!!!



Okay, so it took a while to get to the 4wd shifter light since the way I have my CB mounted, but I finally got to it.


Oh and on the 4wd shifter, not all of it displays blue. There are some green filters or something so 4 part time and Neutral show up green. It still looks awesome though.


Here is all the leds I got today



The yellow ones are for the front parking lights.
Of course I always have to put the decals on. I have one on my driver side window too.


This is all the stuff for the HID's




The fog lights kind of have me wondering if I got the right ones.... they have some plastic containers around them that don't come off.... but I'll go see how it works. Just got to print the instructions out first.

Oh, and if any of you are wondering... They are DDM Tuning HID's
6000k hi/lo beams
and 3000k for foglights.

It took 13 days to get them. Ordered on 6/11, shipped the 6/18 and got here today the 23rd.

Later in the day on 6/23
While... it's all done... but I don't have pics! My battery died since I was pretty much working on the jeep from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Anyways... I will have pictures tomorrow.... but I must say the Lights are FREAKING AWESOME! I am so happy with them. I aimed them down a bit and turned them on when it got dark and man... those lights shine pretty far! The fog lights are awesome too!

I did have to modify the bottom cover on the fog lights, but only by drilling a 7/8th hole.

BTW, I used double sided tape to hold the ballasts in the engine bay, and to the unibody under the bumper. DDM didn't provide any tape, but I had some laying around.
Did anyone else mount there's like that? If not how did you do it?

The Hi/Lo works flawlessly! The fogs shut off just like normal when the hi beam kicks on. I can't wait to drive this thing tomorrow night. I was so ****ed when my jeep wouldn't start! I had to take my Mom's van to buy a battery charger...

I also put the LED parking lights in and I'm loving them too. I did the corners and the corners next to the turn signals. The thing I noticed though, was that when you have your emergency flashers on, the corners don't flash. Guess I'm going to have to pick up a LED flasher.

Here are the pics. More to come tomorrow!

Bye Bye Halogen!

HID's In

HID's in fogs



Stock halogen 194 parking light

5 High power SMD led 360 degree light in, it's Brighter!

In both now and looking good!



6/24

I must say the HID's are awesome... and I got a lot of looks. I think it's because of the yellow fogs. No one flashed me at all. I had them aimed down really far, so I stopped and aimed them up more so I could have more visibility and even then I wasn't flashed. I am thinking about aiming them up a little more even. I'll see about that tomorrow.

Like always, pictures will show glare... and my cell phone isn't the greatest camera to use, but it works.
In this pic there is some glare, but standing where I was standing when I took the picture, the headlights weren't shining in my face, and they weren't glaring.


You can somewhat see the color contrast. BTW... they aren't aimed up that high, my driveway is very steep. But this picture shows how bright they are.


6/27

I got some daytime pictures today. Still haven't gotten flashed yet. :thumbsup:
I think I have them aimed just right.

Good news... Lift is coming probably in August maybe. I gotta get quotes and such still and figure out what tires I want to go with, but it's a WIP.

I'm picking up Cragar Soft 8's next weekend.

This should help you
http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProd...lacementGuide/

Sometimes its hard to figure it out. You might have to find a forum with some guys who have the same make truck of yours and see if they changed any lights. Since I'm on Jeepforum, thats how i found out the bulb guide for mine. That site helps though.

Forgot to post pics that I took the other day. I did on the other forum so I might as well post here too.
7/20

Washed the Jeep today.

So about 4 hours after we got back I get a call from the guy, and he said he found the 5th wheel. I was about to ask how much he wanted for it when he said it was mine if I could come pick it up. So I went back for another 50 mile round trip and got that spare. Five cragar soft 8's, valve stems, center caps for all, all for $150.

I just go lucky and man I couldn't thank that fellow more. :thumbsup:

Here is a pic.. since you wanted one :laugh:
The 4 others are at my house in Springfield... I'm in ST. Louis atm. Dad hauled the other wheels home.

Missed a few posts so I'll update. Lift kit came last week, got it put on today. Pics tomorrow... here is my post from JF.

My Mom and Dad dropped it off at my work at like 9:20ish. After they went out to eat and took it... :rofl:

It looks awesome! Sure looks a lot higher than 3.5 inches though! :thumbsup:

It still needs to be aligned, the shop said they didn't have the stuff to do it with so it will have to be put off a few days. Driving around though, it didn't really seem all to bad. No DW yet.. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I am very pleased with it, and love it. It looks like a beast now.

Although... there is a problem. One of my freaking Cragar Soft 8's had a hole about the size of a pin head in it. So it is slowly leaking air. Good thing I got 5 rims, we are going to fix it tomorrow.

I will post pics up tomorrow. The jeep looks great though, even with my 5 old tires and wheels in the back it didn't even look like it was sagging. :thumbsup:

They are down low and 3k is a yellow color which is what most fog lights used to be. It's better visibility wise in the rain and fog. I don't see how the fogs could bother anyone considering they are so low though... although now they are where my headlights used to be

I need to do some re-aiming. The fogs are nice though.

i see what you mean, i just like all the same color, atleast for my car.

never knew 3k was standard for fog lights. guess thats my the fogs on the lexus are yellow

the fogs on my focus shine about 4-5 feet in front the car. people sometimes flash their highs when i use just the fogs. i enjoy annoying people

My fogs shine 10-15 feet out. You can see them pretty well though. They are aimed lower though, so I really don't think they should bother people too much. My headlights might be a different story.
