    Looks good, thanks for sharing!

    I have been debating upgrading my DRLs and turn signals, your pics help :like:

    Nice update, did your fog light connectors require any trimming of the socket tabs? Mine fit ok but had to "modify" them a bit :(

    I was afraid they might, but they fit in perfectly.

    Did you get any hyperflash or errors? Want to do the same but trying to avoid buying a Tazer.

    No errors at all, but mine didn't have the LED package from the factory and the bulbs I bought were specifically for the JLU. Follow the links in my OP for the same setup. :)

    @JSFoster75 how are these holding up for you?
    I am getting an intermittent error code on one of the turn signals, which results in hyper flash when it happens.

    Looking around, it seems that most of the replacement bulbs also require resistors, which I am not sure that I want to install.

    I would welcome the thoughts of others.

    @JSFoster75 The DRL link above says they fit the 2019 JL, but the Alta Fog Light bulbs say they do not fit? Can you confirm it is the correct part number? Also do the bulbs "lock in" ? I read in another post that if the bulbs don't lock in they can fall out due do the extra weight of the LED bulb?
    Any info is appreciated,

    Thank you

    @WranglerMan the bulbs are easy to get to, two 8mm bolt and Christmas tree panel clip, then peel back the inner fender. I have the same tail lights as those that this vendor sells, they too are an easy install, and I’ve had no issues with them.

    They were easy to replace, took maybe 10 minutes per side (since I didn't know what I was doing), Just remove the two bolts and the clip, pull back the fender liner and from there it's a simple bulb replacement.

    I ended up going with the Spyder LED replacement tail lights, I love them!!!

    Eddie, the links I posted are correct, they do lock in, just a little difficult to get them to "click" into place. I've had them installed for 7 weeks or so and they are performing beautifully.
