these kinda suck, they are 168G bulbs from blazer. they aren't green enough IMO, they look less green in the tac and speedo pics because i still have the old bulbs in one side. autozone only had 2 packs so im working with 4 bulbs here, the other gauges though look greener because the white light isn't interfering with the green. either way, **** it im just gonna do LEDs when i can find some for a decent price.

my dads camera is all high tech as **** but it can't take a damn clear pic in the dark for ****! go figure...








EDIT: i just ordered 6 bulbs from the the website, i'll make another post of the lights when i get them installed. it only took me about 10 minutes to install from the time i touched the dash till i put it all back together though so it'll be quick at least.

Offroadinshawty I like that 2 color tach idea, it looks great.
I hope you don't mind if I steal that idea.

I got the idea from the gauges in my friends scarab speed boat. I just chose green and red. I tried to do the two color spedo as well but the coloring wasn't even. 0-90 was green and from there it changed from yellow to red at 100 mph.... so I just did the two color tach

i thought about buying one of those for my blazer when the digi-dash started going but they seem a little confusing because it's all numbers instead of actual gauges. I ended up sending my dash in to this guy on e-bay who fixed it good as new



Glad to see the 2 different color tach lights idea is catching on... I love it when a plan comes together especially when I planned it myself... hehe. I love trends... but not ones that begin with "i". too bad I'm as much of a shmuck as the next guy so I still buy 'em

Hey does anyone know where I can get a new guage cluster? My YJ is missing the plastic piece infront of all of the different signal lights like highbeams, turn signals, ect, and I cant find that cover with the symbols anywhere. If anyone has any suggestions that would help alot.

I think I have an extra one from building up mine. I'll check when I get home and you can have it. I think it is gray from a 91.

Our favorite game is 'SMACK A JEEP' - started off as a way for my buddy to get even with his girlfriend's slug-bug fetish. Simply smack her in the face as hard as you can when you see a Jeep Wrangler and yell, 'SMACK A JEEP!!!!'

Never actually smacked anybody, but my kids LOVE the game. Now my whole family plays it - and so do my kids' friends!
