LED Turn Signals?

I'm really interested in seeing if this is possible. Another member tried long ago with no results apparently. He said that they would not work properly when the headlights were on. Anyone know anything about that, or if there have been lights made that correct this problem?

Bumping this to see if anyone has any input. I am referring to the front turn signals, and side markers near the reflector as well if possible. A thread from awhile back showed someone trying it and failing, and a more recent thread someone stated all exterior bulbs could be fitted with LEDs.

Anyone know the story or done this themselves yet?

I have all LED exterior lights. I installed them prior to me leaving for Argentina. From what little i tested, all worked great. It will be a couple weeks before I get home, but will give you a full review of operation.

Do you know what type of bulb was used? The ones I purchased were all lumen except for my license plate were by putco.

Did you purchase these:

http://www.carid.com/2006-jeep-comma...s-3131261.html

Lumen 3157 bulbs. Also, are the side markers referring to the small bulbs next to the side reflector of the turn signal? If you can confirm these work, I will order for sure.

Thanks!

Yes the 3157 were the ones I ordered. I ordered amber for the front and red for the back. I ordered the Rear Side Marker Replacement LED Bulb - 194, Red (194CR) by Lumen®. If you are looking at your rear tail lights, it's the small bulb that is in the lower outboard portion of your lens.
Your front does not use those type of bulbs though.

Will the side markers install without taking the tail light cover off? That hole is very small. Also, did you replace the side marker for the front turn signal? Lastly, do you replace the front turn signal light through the engine bay or the wheel well with the small access door?

Edit: Ordered the Lumen front turn signal bulbs and side markers. Couldn't really see how to access the lights from just a quick look into the engine bay. And I figured the rear side markers aren't necessary as they don't illuminate with turn signal use and only light up when the vehicle's lights are on.

Edit 2: Just saw on another Jeep forum that the access is through the wheel well door. Will give it a look tomorrow.

Turn signals will be here tomorrow. Side markers later this month.

Any ideas on how to flex or prop the vehicle up a little to get easier access to the wheel well panel? Could probably feel around and do it but would prefer to see. Don't have a jack unfortunately.
