LED lighted cup holder for WJ (1999-2004)
 
Hi guys,
just wanted to post some pics of some custom lights for the cup holder in my 2000 Grand Cherokee Laredo. While looking in the WK forum I came across a guy who was making them for his WK model and they looked awesome. He began to get tons of requests to make them for other members and started doing so. I and a bunch of others kept asking him to make some to fit other models such as my 2000 and he did. If you want to see pictures of some some he has made and pictures of others who have installed them in there Jeeps go to the WK forum and browse for lighted cup holders or here is the link http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/w...lders-1484603/ I will try to upload some pics of mine if I can figure it out. I should have taken them at night because they look really awesome then, so not sure if yiou can get the feel with the pics I took in the day. The ligths are cool, it comes with a controller that allows you to choose many different colors,(red, green, blue, orange, turquise, etc) and 4 brightness levels. You can even tell it to randomly change colors automatically and the speed at which the colors change. Anyway here are my pics:

That's pretty cool but is that wood grain on your shifter bezel? And around your cup holder? I've never seen that before.

On a side note these cup holders can go to hell. I've never had more drinks fall over in any other vehicle. Got a fix for that?

Bot, I do like the LEDs gj

Hey, those do look fantastic! (I'm seeing them installed for the first time myself, haha.)

Yes it is wood grain. I ordered a kit for the 2000 model and it came with lots of pieces. even the face of the radio/cd/casette is wood grain. Ive never had too many spiils in mine but i know what you mean. Jeeps cup holders dont seem to hold tall containers as secure as others, but mine have done pretty well or maybe Ive just been lucky lol

Thanks Craig. You do awesome work. I should have taken more pics with all the different colors. My phone kind of washes out the color a little when it takes the pics. so in person the color is way more vivid, the pictures really dont do them justice. You should post the direct link on how to order them from you for all the WJ owners who may want some. Plus I would like it to so I can order the remote control feature for the LED's.

You have obviously never owned a 90s Camaro. The WJs cup holders are like skinny jeans compared to those (or should I say "it").


Very nice looking. Do you have any more pictures of that dash kit?

The WJ's front cup holders aren't too bad, actually. Most vehicles I've drove or rode in have those stupid pull out trays that don't do ****.

I've found that the one farthest away from you (the smaller cupholder) does a pretty good job at holding drinks. At least for me.

Thanks man. It all started pretty simply. I made some for myself and posted in the 'What did you do to your WK/XK today?' thread. It turns out that a lot of other guys liked them too, so I thought I'd make sets for whoever wanted some. I want to support fellow Jeep owners, so I decided to make sets for any Jeep vehicle as long as I can get measurements. Regarding the remote control, it's still a few weeks off. I will keep the updates rolling at Jeep-Core.com. :D

As promised, I've posted my fix to the cup holder engineering disaster. see it here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f46/c.../#post15508357

It's not just your WJ that has poorly designed cup holders, I have a 2012 Mazda 3 that likes to spill just about every darn thing you put into the 'holders' :laugh:
