    Hey just wondering if you can swap the original interior "dome" light to a LED one without any re wiring or adding a ballast or such.

    Thanks

    i had to solder a small, 100ohm resister in parallel with the bulb when changing my dome and map lights to led bulbs.

    I did this exact mod to my 2003 a little over a month ago. You have to add in two 1watt 100ohm resistors to the map light and one 1watt 100ohm resistor to each map light like so...

    Here are the bulbs I bought....

    Map Light

    Im not understanding this comment, because you havent bought or seen the quality of my leds. So if you dont know why my prices are what they are and the fact they wont look like a science experiment, and are plug n play. Ask the 2003s that have bought from me. The 2003 is different in resistance as opposed to the 2001,2002, or 2004.

    and ive been working on launching a full website soon.

    To be fair, rather than bash someone, how about explain your concern. I don't know CJ personally, but I do know that he knows his stuff, and sells a good product at a fair price. I know this because in my shop I sell some of the same stuff he does.
