Best dome light upgrade

Postby Phils67 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 5:53 pm

So I recently discovered that a YJ hard top dome light is the same as a J-truck dome light. Found a clear YJ dome lens cover and swapped it in with a LED bulb and it was the best 20 something dollar upgrades i could have done for interior illumination. Just thought i would share because I'm overly excited about simple things like this

That's cool. Any part numbers available? The original cover is a 959978. The usual dome light has a funny cylindrical bulb. How much of the housing did you replace?

Original housing, just replaced the lens part. Bought it on ebay and came with a bulb, same cylindrical style but had 9 white LEDs. It was like 25 bucks shipped for everything. Not bad for a 10 second upgrade
