What's up everyone? It's Landan with And today, I'm going to show you a simple how-to for all '99 to '04 SVT Lightnings. A common problem on all Gen 2 Lightnings are broken, dull, yellow license plate light bulbs. A simple solution to this is upgrading to one of our LED light converges kits.

These lights are brighter, last longer than your factory bulbs, and give your SVT Lightning a modernized look. Now, let me go ahead and show you just how simple this install is.

Starts by reaching underneath your rear bumper and locating the light connector. Rotate the connector counterclockwise and remove it from the bumper. If the light does not power on, simply unplug it and reverse the orientation. LED bulbs will only illuminate if they have the correct electrical player.

Pull the factory bulb out of the connector and install an LED bulb. Align the connector with the light cover and rotate clockwise and snap it in place. Repeat for the opposite side.

Installation was super simple. It took me less than five minutes to complete. And even with our studio lights, you can definitely notice a difference between your factory bulb and our LED light conversion kit.
