I thought the mod just consisted of taking the stock bulbs out and replcacing with the led ones. Not sure though...

Thats what i figured too, but i just wanted to see if anyone has done it yet and how they like it. Personally, i think it would look pretty sweet.

ROLLLLLLLLTTIIIIIIDE!
Dude that looks sick. I was probably going to do blue but i definitely like that more than the amber-ish color that is there now. I have my dome light led in now and that was an awesome switch too.
Did you do the dash yourself?

Roll Tide indeed!!! But yeah I actually done it 3 times before I found a bulb style that I liked lol!! Def. make sure that you get the 360* bulbs because if you dont 2k and 6k on the tack and 30mph and 90mph will light up brighter than the rest.

I had a fellow Marine who always said rolltide.. I was like dude wtf does that mean. Needless to say he was from Alabama. haha.
Anyway, before i get too off topic, was there a site that you used that guided you to access the lights or did you just start hacking at it?

Also when you actually put the lights in make sure you plug it up and check to see that the lights are lit!!! If they are not just flip it around, they are polarity specific i guess??

How much were the lights? Well..... I really dont know lol!! My buddy travis gave me some extras he had. But you will need 4 of them and I think there like $1-$3 apiece on ebay. Just make sure they are the 360° view ones.

OMAC-

If you're curious or interested in some tail lights i found some on ebay that you might be interested in. I am pretty sure you can get non-smoked too, but smoked is cooler.
