    I have a 2012 and other than a lift and wheels, it's pretty generic in appearance wise. I hate the orange running lights in the front. I was wondering what switchbacks/regular bulbs match the headlights close enough to have the lighting in the front all be clear. Yes I know, it's a stupid question but it's killing me. I hate the orange and was wanting a cheap quick fix . Oh and nothing that will melt the housing either. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know. My '09 is probably different. Take one out and go to the auto parts store and look for the same number bulb, but in clear. You might want to post this under "lighting" for more traffic.

    Are we talking parking lights or DRLs? I used LED(194) bulbs in my parking lights up there and they are 5-6000k colorish that match the 6000k HID fogs. I has no DRL action on my 08. Used same 194 LEDs in the rr license plate lights.

    Where did you find the leds? My first option is to run to the auto parts store for just generic clear bulbs to see how that looks. HID's are for future mods. And yes sorry dtrl's and parking lights.

    The DTRL is also the turn signal, right? If so, Johnny Law may not be very happy if you put clear lights there. is there an amber cover over the DTRL?

    LEDs for parking lights I got off ebay. Got a bag of 20 of them for like $8-10 shipped. Used them on/in wife's SUV, my truck and my car with several spare ones left over. IIRC, they have 5 LEDs on each bulb. Did the license plate lights, parking lights, map lights on all 3 vehicles.

    Here's a link to the ones like I bought, same seller too.............
