    I did XB's in the fogs, and LED's in the interior domes. I now have a hum from the radio at times, i'm thinking it's the inside lights, but was wondering before I started replacing things, if anyone had the same issues.

    I used these for the interior:

    For Shits and Giggles, I ordered these to see if they operated differently (havne't put them in yet):

    Easy way to diagnose is to remove the interior lamp fuse and see if it goes away! I don't think it is related to the leds but only one way to find out.

    I would be researching Electro Magnetic Interference, or EMI and the effects LEDs do to digital radio signals.

    I'm familiar. Was just curious if anyone had the issue and had switched to a different bulb

    A lot of JK Jeep people try the cheaper bulbs that you plug in and have this happen.

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    LEDs use a driver to turn the led on. If the drivers are cheaply made they will give off a emi or feedback into system(vehicle) making what you hear is noise.
