So, Im ready for some test prints. Which one do you guys like?







The more I look at it, Im liking #3. Yes, #3 will be black background (if i can get it to print well) and only the white / grey areas will light up.

I vote for #3. It would be a great upgrade over the stock gauges. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product.

#3 of course! Would you provide for some options like on your Pre-97's? Like the colors of the scale, "Jeep" logo, American flag, etc?

I think i can Add the word Jeep in there. Spacing on these ones is a bit tight with all the indicators. Ive also been thinking about adding patterned backgrounds, but will be rolling those out after.

Jeep logo right above the high beam indicator.

I also volunteer my XJ for a test fit.

edit: Just realized how close you live to me Azzy, I want to go wheeling.

I vote #3. can we get them printed without certain lights? I don't need ABS or cruise. if they don't show I don't care. I guess they do cause of the white BG on the computer?

It looks really nice by the way. I like the chances that have been made from the stock one. Definitely still interested.

Well, on the plus side, if you want a full white background, no light means nothing will light. If I print these and cut at home as they go, custom options will be possible.

(First set is printing )
