Nissan Xterra Interior LED





At Diode Dynamics, we carry a full line of LED bulbs, to replace your Xterra's dome lights, license plate lights, trunk light, turn signals, and more!

We carry the brightest, highest-quality bulbs at the lowest prices. Your order will ship same day, and we're here if you need us for support and service. These LED bulbs are designed by us here in St. Louis, and every bulb carries with it a three-year limited warranty.

Your dome, map, and cargo lights use an incandescent bulb from the factory, giving it a yellowish color. By replacing them with an LED, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your Xterra, with a cool white color, just like the lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMF4 or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your dome light.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulbs!


Bulb Design:

SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two forward-facing 5050-size Epistar SMDs. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel.

SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

Brightness

SMF2: (16 lumens) Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: (94 lumens) Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
SMD12 Board: (118 lumens) Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures.


All products by Diode Dynamics are backed by a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a three-year limited warranty.

hello, is there a reason there is no map lights available for the 1st Gen Xterra?

Thanks!

Got my dome lights installed. Those 12's are amazingly bright, even in green. We fish at the coast a lot, and I'm hoping the green doesn't attract bugs like the white lights.

The interior is grey.


Great product!
