Yeah it is. That thing is pretty damn bright. I can't wait to see what it looks like once they're installed.

Very cool. Please include pics of the install. I'm curious where you will mount it. I checked on my door and it looks like there is not any plastic to to drill through to mount. You'll have to put a big hole in the sheet metal. I also want to see how you tie in the electric.

I went to Central Oregon to visit family for a few days, and now I'm back. I'll be installing them now. I'd like them to be done by our traditional New Year's Day trip. I'm almost thinking they can shine down at all times instead of with open doors. I'll scope it out tonight.

We don't know where we're going... yet, but the old 1950's picnic basket will be going along. It's become a running gag now, the first time was the wicker basket and a red checkered cloth laid out with a Thermos on top of that - on a picnic table with 2 feet of snow on it. That was at Dry Falls Washington. Last year, the basket etc. was on the edge of a cliff above an old dried up lake bed. (Black Lake)

I'm also debating where to put the Chevy ones on the old truck. I want them to be shining down when the headlights are on. I can't decide whether to put one each side, or at the front and rear ends.

The eBay seller is sending me a set of Chrysler ones since they screwed up. Works for me, that makes the Chevy ones a bonus.

2006, 4.7L, QTII, Toyo M/T 265/70R17 tires, Ultrasport 175 wheels, Rocky Road 2.25'' lift kit, HID off-road lighting, Surco 50x60 roof rack, Foxwing awning.

Man, it's hard to get motivated with this cold weather. I didn't get anything done before the New Year trip, but so it goes.

My replacement Chrysler projectors came and I got one installed. They're real easy on the car, the door already has a courtesy light shining down. I mounted the projector (they're about 3/4" x 1.5 inches) in the door trim plastic, and wired it to the courtesy light. It took about 20 minutes. The bottom of the trim pulled away far enough to get the job done without removing the whole thing.

I left the original light there, and the projector is about 10 inches away from it. The logo really pops when the light is blocked, but the light is nice to have too, so I left it. I can always duct tape over it, or toss the bulb out.


On the Jeep, I'm going to have to fish wiring to the courtesy light under the dash since there's no door light. (I'd have swore there was one there) I think the edge of the plastic door trim will be wide enough.

The trouble with working in the shop is when I run the kerosene torpedo heater, after a while I start getting gassed. When it warms up, I'll be more excited about installing the things.

The things are COOL. When the 300's door is opened, the Chrysler logo "slides out" as if attached to something solid.
