Jeep back from paint

I just got my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee back from paint today after I was hit by a drunk driver in the parking lot at Costco. My Jeep celebrated its birthday just crossing 120000 miles. Got my JeepFourm sticker this week and I am wearing it proudly

What instrument cluster is that? Did you just change the bulbs in it to get it to look like that?

The dials fit over the existing ones. That assumes that you don't have glow gauges already. The one thing I had to do was to install a 12 volt regulator found here http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2062600 If you don't you will be blowing up a lot of glow guage transformers. They don't tell you this but I learned the hard way and I have not hada problem since. Simple to install and the directions we excellent. Anyone can do it and it does require a little wiring but thats no issue. As for the decal the colors are pretty bad and brown text on a brown background is hard to see. I hope the change it soon.

Those gauges are pretty slick. Are you still able to dim them? Or are they at a set brightness?

Yes they are dim-able. Yes they have a set for most makes and models of the Jeep and I did see one for the 99 cherokee.
