Anybody 97-01 with white face/glow gauges??

Hey guys I'm extremely bored right now so i'm looking into a project I wanted to do for a while... I kind of want to get glow gauges, or at least white face in my XJ. I.M.O. they're much cooler looking and, seeing how often I look at them, it would be a nice investment to make them look nice. I noticed theres an ebay auction for glow gauges for a 99-01 XJ cluster



The only difference I see between that and my 98 is the check engine light. I don't think this would be much of an issue to me seeing as my light is never on (yet that is lol), even so I'll be able to notice it anyways. So will this kit fit alright do you think?

Exactly the ones I'm looking at... Sold

heres the link if anybody wants to check them out, I just bought them (they were the only ones throughout ebay) so the listing is closed but it will still be up for a li'l bit. Ended up being $30 with free shipping. The white face gauges themselves I thought were worth that so having the glow is a little bonus for me

Here is a pic with them on at night:

I'm assuming the glow cutout around the indicators will be more sharp once its installed, because it looks like he took this picture pre-installation.

Say boots,

how did you install them?

I can get the gauge cluster out and the cover off of it, and do all the wiring myself, but how does this setup slip over the gauges/needles? Any tips/tricks?

That installation link is useful, however I think I will have a much more intriguing experience seeing as my set is one piece for all of the gauges...

Do these have some kind of controller? I found a cluster with these installed in the yard and I liked the look. I put 12V power to the wire leads and nothing lit up.

yeah it comes with a little control box with a switch and a dimmer to control color (blue/green) and intensity

I'm not usually for these mods like this, and I tend to group them with the clear tail lights type stuff, but I kindof like this. Can you post pics of this installed?

I felt the same way. I think they will look pretty cool even without the 'blue glow' they are supposed to have.

Is there any way to upgrade the stock bulbs to brighter ones? (early XJ)
