Jeep owners tend to be proud, but there’s nothing wrong with that. The Jeep is one of the most American icons that has ever been designed and released to the world. It’s also one of those few symbols that actually comes along with reliability and plain old toughness to back up such a claim to fame.
So, as mentioned, Jeep owners are proud. Because of that, they also tend to enjoy working on their Jeeps and making upgrades. Some of these upgrades are cosmetic, some are functional, and occasionally, they are both.
Among the upgrades you can make yourself to your Jeep with little or no help is to switch your Jeep lights over to LED lights. LEDs burn much longer than incandescent and halogen lights, are much more reliable, and will draw less power, taxing your battery less over time. But they can be hard to replace.
The operative word there is can, because they can be hard to replace. Sometimes LEDs require electrical knowledge to do rewiring so that they will work with your Jeep’s current electrical system. Sometimes they are not designed to fit right into the same socket you took the old bulbs out of.
These are more extreme examples, but they will require you to know a lot about what you’re doing. Sometimes, the difficulty is much more muted. For example, what can you do with true plug and play options that require no extensive knowledge, if you don’t know which models are compatible? This is really the definition of the statement “everything is easier once you know how.”
On one hand, you can sink time into flipping through your owner’s manual and come up with the models of the Jeep lights you want to replace, and then go looking for LEDs that match those same numbers. Just make sure they really are plug and play, though, or they won’t work even when installed.
Then again, the success of that venture hinges on the hope that manufacturers make LEDs that are coded in the same way as the OEM halogen or incandescent bulbs. Some do, and others may not .
Here’s an easier way to upgrade your Jeep’s lights to LEDs. It still requires you to find the code from your owner’s manual, but the next part will be easier. Once you know the model of light you want to replace, visit DiodeDynamics.com.
Once on their website, use their vehicle finder to list all of the compatible lights that will work with your Jeep. Their vehicle finder will ask you for your year, make and model, and then display all compatible lights and mounts.
So, for example, all you might need to type in is 2020 Jeep Wrangler, and they’ll do all of the rest of the work for you. Once you do that, all of the compatible fog lights, turn signals, side marker lamps, tail lights and much more will be displayed front and center for you.
You’ll even see on any given product page just what parts their lights are intended or designed to replace, and if they are plug and play options (many of them are). In addition, they also provide auxiliary lighting like LED light bars that mount to Jeeps at factory mounting points with the necessary hardware and require no modding, cutting or drilling. In many ways, their products are the perfect solution to a painless upgrade.
