Haha, I certainly try.

I'll see what I can accomplish this week. If it's too bright, I'll get creative. I've got a few ideas about how I can diffuse with acrylic. The key will be to keep it as simple as possible, and if so, I can keep the cost pretty low. Okay, I took at the link, and although they may be discontinued, that are absolutely insane with the MSRP. Heck, even if I have to make something with acrylic for diffusing, I can't imagine it would cost more than $30 shipped at most. I'll add up parts costs, but it may be even closer to $25 for an upgrade kit that would plug right into the existing controller.

What I could do is simply offer the controller separately for those that want it. I think most guys would want it tied together. I guess we'll see.

Okay, question for you guys. Here is what the ORT logo would look like paired with the Jeep logo. At least to me, they look a little mismatched due to the different fonts. There isn't much I can do about that short of skewing or changing the scale. Thoughts?

I guess I'm not hip to this ORT thing. It's all Jeep for me.

Cool that you're working on mood lighting too! Can't wait.

Received mine a week ago and couldnt wait to install it with the wireless controller so I copied the previous member who had it in the little cubby hole between the power outlets.





Awesome product! Matches my led controls perfectly!

Few questions/concerns,

How durable are they to seeping water from cold drinks n such?

What can I do to make the cupholders more secure. My driver side is perfect, passenger is quite snug as well but just wondering. 3m tape?

No worries man. Some like it, some don't. Some guys prefer just the simple rings as opposed to any wording at all. I'm trying to cover it all either way.

Those look great! The colors are indeed a perfect match.

Regarding moisture, there shouldn't be any issues. I've tested the strips by leaving them submersed in water. If for some reason you do have problems, just let me know. I've taken care of everyone that has come to me.

Yeah, a little 3M tape would be fine. As you noticed I did try to make the fit as tight as possible.

Thats just my take.
He's making LED cup holder rings...he didn't advertise LED undercarriage lights or Exhaust tip LED's.. So are you saying that the manufacturer of the 2013 Jeeps decided to copy Rice burning Honda's when they chose to add standard lights in the cup holders? I don't know about you but I like the idea of being able to see what I'm grabbing out of my cup holders at night rather than turning the interior lights on...especially with having the option to change the color of the lights to match my paint or interior dashboard lights...a better option than what the new jeeps even have.. So... Again... How is this related to rice burning teenagers driving pimped out Hondas? I don't see the connection here...

Thanks for the order man.

Just a quick update for those waiting on the new rings for other Jeep models. My last plastic shipment was incorrect. They've reshipped but I won't have it until Monday or Tuesday. Sorry for the delay guys.

Why does it have to be riced out? Do you live in a boring world where you do what the other guy is or are you scared to do what you think is cool
