2nd Gen Auto Shifter LED...

BLUE:


Ok, so recently a couple of members have brought up questions about changing out that little light located next to our shifters...and a couple want brighter ones than the ones they sell out there.

So this is what i came up with...

bought a pack of 2 led strips from pepe boys (around $10-15)




took my truck apart (everything literally pops off these trucks if you dont already know that )

then unhooked the plug to splice into the wires (i threw a bit of solder just to be safe)


test:


they come with double sided 3mm tape so sticking is easy..


on



close up shop:


everything on (or driving at night)


sorry for the crappy cell pics....i literally just did this mod like 20 mins ago
these lights are really bright and they are the same ones used for your clusters

since it comes with 2 strips you can maybe split the cost with another local member...those of you that are local to me, I will be having blue, red and white strips in "stock" with me incase you want it done...all you need to pay for is for one strip which will be like $8ish depending how much the pack cost....goodluck

any questions feel free to post on here and ill get back to you asap

If you don't have a pepboys or a parts house local, or want to pay high prices for what these lights strips usually cost, go to eBay. Type in SMD led strip. (surface mount diode). I buy them and install them under atvs and so many other places. They are cheap cheap cheap.

Your truck looks good OP! I think I'm going to have to swap my cluster to white/amber and everything else. I don't like how the color swap comes out on the HVAC. So I'll just try to match it all

What I don't understand is why go through the a/c controls for power when you have power on the wires of the stock bulb are right under neath the shifter
