You're not being picky, you're just plain wrong....

FRONT side markers must be amber.

REAR side markers must be red

If you hurry to Collins Brothers Jeep, they did have some listed in their "Closeout" section, under the "Bestop" icon.

You can see the gray ones in my wife's '93 YJ here.



And more of my '91 YJ


Obligatory JF sticker picture.....



BTW, the ratchet strap is the product of the domino effect.
1) Driving months at a time with no top sun-dries seat which = crack in seat
2) Crack in seat develops into rip
3) Rip in seat allows rain (no top, remember?) to soak into seat foam like a sponge
4) Water-soaked seat foam rusts out seat frame
5) Fat guy (me) sits in seat with rusty frame & it "reclines" beyond the original design concept
6) Ratchet strap holds seat back in place

haha same prob in mine... never thought of a rachet strap lol

Good job. I'm getting the same strap instead of welding some tubing, lol.
I might want recliner seats one day.

Nice write up. Are the side markers required?? Also, did you guys use the resistors or the electronic flashers?

I only got one for each light and ended up having to make my own harnesses for the other two. It's not that difficult, just time consuming and a little less clean of an installation.

I really like them though, and they are a cheaper solution than the other intregrated SST/R product out there (although you have to drill another hole for the side marker lights).
Looking at the site, which three pin harness? The 3pin led flasher, 3pin male/female harness, or the three pin stt right angle plugs?
