It wasn't just that. It was something else he said earlier in the thread. Maybe it's just me, but both posts seemed like they could have been made more tactfully. Anyway, I wish I'd known about these other sites, but the bulbs I had ordered were a birthday gift, so I didn't pay out of pocket. I'll have photos when they're installed, and maybe I'll go to Vleds for my exterior replacement bulbs. Thanks for the tip!

Well I'll agree on SuperBrightLeds. I outfitted my entire Dodge Ram and converted my entire dash, A/C control, Etc to blue LEDs. Looked sweet. I plan on doing the Jeep some day. But cost wise and retrofitting wise, go with SuperBrightLeds. And your Jeep looks good. Unique from the others.

Thanks! I'm planning on redoing all the lights in and out with LEDS. Do the blue LEDs shine through the green tinted lettering on the dash, or do the colors run together? I've been dying to do a dash LED swap for a while now. Planning on having the entire interior grey/black/blue and the entire exterior green/black/chrome, and maybe doing some LED accenting down the road.

Well on my Dodge, the lights were normal yellowish bulbs, and it had the green lighting from the factory. So there had to be a blue filter behind the gauges to get the green color. So putting in blue LEDs just made a true uniform lit cluster. I'll attach a picture of my Ram.

Also, I don't know if it matters, but I made a DIY for the LED's on DodgeForum a while back, so you could follow it as a guide.

What I mean is the lettering, numbers, etc are green. Is that what you meant by the factory lighting? I'm trying to swap every light to LED, eventually, and the dash is my next interior project after the map lights get here.

Also, that dashboard looks killer.

No, mine were white. I don't know how you'd change that unless you get one of those white gauge faces off of eBay.

Considering its at least $50 for the LEDs, I'll look into it and save up. Thanks for the advice.

Just tape a few flash lights to the dash and point them at your face when you drive at night.

New sub box/cap/amp set up finally finished. Also installed Pyle 6.5" 300W mid woofers in the front doors with the Dual TS10 tweeters, and a Pyle 6.5" 400W component system in the back doors.

I was told by many car audio shops to not bolt your amp to the box cause the vibrations will wear them out over time.

Huh. Friend of mine who used to work at a car audio place didn't seem worried about it. Oh well. If it breaks, I'll buy a better one and put it under the seat again.

That is the worst mentality to have.

I have 2 RF 10s with an alpine headunit with 2 v12 amps. For speakers i have infinity cappas. Its a great sounding system.
