can anyone tell me what lumens to get for the T10 - 194 gauge lights. There are several choices at superbrightled. Thank you.

It has been a while and this is from memory: the t10 are the big lights for when the headlights are on so they are adjustable so I would say get ones on the brighter side, but note that some t10 are too big to physically fit in the socket, also lumens is only useful measuring white light so if you are changing the color a low lumen red light could be brighter then a high lumen white light.

If you link me the ones you are looking at when I get home I can compare them to the ones I got and let you know if I think they will work.

I would do red but my better half would not like that. I think the blue on your dash looks awesome.

I did some of my lights blue at first but it just killed my eyes, now everything is red and amber and it is way easier on my eyes at night.

I was wondering about that. Normally I use a red light not to spoil night vision when I shoot at night or other things. I am not aware of Blue light spoils night vision or not. My Charger's lights are all red. Anyone know?

Thought.. is there anyway to set it up so it changes colors between night and day.. say blue during the day and red at night? Just like headlights go on during the night in some vehicles or when it starts raining. I get that functionality may not be built into the Stock Baja and it would require either 2 LED's or one that could change color along with some sort of logic/computer functionality.

If you find me a pinout for the cluster I could probably get you a diagram to switch colors when headlights are on, but you would probably wire up custom led bulbs.
