Who has done an led upgrade on a 2nd gen Rodeo?

Postby kmcmilla » Tue Nov 22, 2016 9:40 pm

Have an '01 Rodeo Sport and am considering upgrading the map, dome, door, and dash lights to LEDs. Who has done this, were you happy with the upgrade, and how many of each bulb will I need?

I looked at superbrightleds.com, but it doesn't tell you how many of each bulb I'll need. Did read a lot of comments that said don't buy cheap bulbs. Any other sellers I should look at?

Not knowing the oem color of second gen nonetheless might mention an unexpected disappointment when I did my 95 passport.
I bought the blue leds for the instruments thinking they would look cool. Well the panel in general did but OEM is green with orange indicators. Illuminated with blue leaves no part of the color spectrum lighting the indicators! Very hard to see. Green lights used the yellow part of their light to make the orange indicators stand out.I am finally getting round to a switch backnto green.

This is an amazing list, my Rodeo is ALL LED, I mean every lamp is LED includes the headlights! It is a cool upgrade and also will reduce load on the alternator

Be careful - the interior-lights replace with LED are BRIGHT!!! Maybe 5 000% the original xD

You only do this once, maybe the LEDs will last 20 years unless you get a bad one as new

Once I am approved I can post images here of my all LED Rodeo
