Curious what you will find with the leds. I've seen some that were extremely bright but didn't project worth a crap.
I'll let you know once they're installed...hopefully tomorrow.

Remember these aren't the same as what people buy for "Tower" LEDs for Turn Signals and Tail Lights. Flash Back LEDs etc.

High Intensity SMD LEDs. I'll up date this.

Were these Projector or Reflector applications?

Also as usual with Eghey there's a broad spectrum of "Quality" or actual fact checking.

These were purchased through Amazon so I'm confident they'll work fine. With Ebay it's a crap shoot on Quality!

Got several Audio/NAV options coming in the next week. Durango NAV Surround Bezel is on the way along with the appropriate Chrysler Radio bracket for NAV.

Will try an REC upgrade to start. Hoping the REC I have is fully functional.

If not....then I have a Boss NAV unit coming from Crutchfield with a Backup Camera. Pretty cheap thanks to all that Black Friday BS. w00t!

Reflector, used as high beams
Were these bulbs you actually purchased and used or something else? Got pictures of the bulbs you're talking about? Someone else used these bulbs and not you?

Bought off eghey and used. Weren't all that expensive, about 35 bucks or so for the set. Don't have any pics, can't remember what they looked like exactly, didn't have any cooling fans. Ended up selling them to one of the east coast 300m club guys who never have a use for high beams other than in photos.

Brackets, Bezels, Wiring Adapters, Interface Adapter and Antenna Adapter for a whopping $49. All from Crutchfield.

Compare that to buying a used RB1 or REC! w00t!

Still need to call and get estimates for a pair of tires. Either Goodyear or Firestone. Whomever has the lowest installed/balanced price wins the contract!

Grrrrrrr! Everythings in for the NAV install except the NAV Dash Bracket. Getting a 2week delivery time! Most online wholesale dealers show the part as being discontinued and not available! Anyone that claims to have one is either over charging or quoting a long lead time to deliver. Retails for around $13 and discounted for under $10. Most of these AzzKlowns want $50 or more that claim to have one!

In contact with AirPark Chrysler to see if they have one. Waiting to hear back

Final piece of the puzzle came in today for the REC NAV install.

NAV Dash Bracket. Seller said it wouldn't ship for approx. 2 weeks! Guess i bitched enough as it showed up today!.

This is "Phase I" for an OEM REC NAV install. Phase II will be an aftermarket NAV head unit with Back Up Camera and Upgraded Kicker Speakers.

Here's what I had to source for the NAV install:



Already had the REC as a spare and of course all the Burned NAV discs and GPS antennas.
