Plasti-dipped the front grill outer bezel...



My girls said it reminds them of a panda bear so I've named the Jeep 'Po' after Kung Fu Panda...the Panda Jeep LOL..

I will fix it by adding a load resistor to the circuit.
I replaced most of the interior. The front map lights I left one as is, as it's better for the passenger to see without being to bright when I'm driving at night. Works well. The passenger one is as bright as the back so too much when driving. The back tailgate ones I put in as I like to be able to see things clearly. The stock one, even with LED isn't bright enough at all.

By front doors I didn't have courtesy lights so swapped in the harness for one instead to run off of. I have red 5050smd along the back few inches and underneath. Also have LED jeep logo that shines down in white. Nice and bright for anyone who's opening the door. Don't see anything during the daylight. Need to do the footwells still. Not sure what I'll do for them yet exactly, and want to do under the hood lights as well like I did with my ZJ. Again, I like to be able to see well.

Will try to get a pic once it gets dark enough out.

I am here to report another WJ mishap found on Instagram this time. The guy who posted it didn't own the jeep, but was saying how the owner ruined a good WJ. Had him email me the original photo

I was going to say, he might as well put stagecoach wheels on it. What's the attraction, why do they like that look so much?
I should watch out, or I might get another "diversity" email.

Nothing wrong with doing something different, but if it doesn't look good? That shows no idea of taste at all.

That would be great. I am installing a LED in the area where the door handle is inside. I saw it done on a friends SUV he just got and love the idea so I am copying it. I may be overkill but it is my Jeep so why not have some fun. All of my lights inside the dask underneath in the front and back are now LEDs. I even went as faw as lighting up underneath the rear seats with the 5050 LEDs. Just a nice touch. I am sure your Jeep must be awesome. Nice job again.

Drove the Jeep for the first time in a week and a half, and the CEL came on and it wouldn't shift into OD. Pulled a P0731 when I got to work.
