Thanks y'all!!! I appreciate it! Now to figure out why the temp gauge is pegged HOT & the gas gauge isn't working...
West Wateree Off-Road said they fixed both of these issues, but apparently they lied. I'm not surprised!

So, kinda strange... I noticed this last night... Left turn signal lights up left arrow on speedo & right turn signal lights up the blue circle on the speedo. I'm thinking I'm going to stop by that off road shop & ask a few questions about their work! So... Wiring is wrong, temp gauge doesn't work, gas gauge doesn't work, & speedo fogs up when driving. I'm happy w/ this place.

I assume the dash was removed for painr? For the speedo lights, they may have just inserted the bulbs into the wrong sockets.

Awesome Jeep! Love it! That sound bar is sweet! I been trying to figure out something for my speaker set up and that gives me something to shoot for!

Nope the dash wasn't removed and that may be the problem. Gauges don't like dust and I bet it was plenty dusty in that shop. Try blowing out behind the dash.

This pic shows the gauge housing was removed… http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/attac...3120392895.jpg

The lights are in the wrong sockets.

ETA: I'm not a Yellow fan but that is an awesome looking rig. How did you make the sound bar?

I'll check the lights & see what I can figure out about the gauges not working. I drove it to work today! 😃 It's awesome!

The sound bar was framed w/ MDF & thin wood strips, then covered w/ fleece, & stapled in place. The speaker holes are slightly raised & framed individually inside the overall frame. After the shape was right, it was completely coated w/ fiberglass resin (soaked). He wrapped the roll bars w/ aluminum foil to keep it from sticking & covered the interior of the jeep w/ plastic. Then the wet sound bar mold was placed on the roll bars where it would be attached (later). We fill both of my ammo cans w/ nuts & bolts to use as weights... We wrapped them both in foil & placed one on each end of the sound bar. The next day, after it had dried/ hardened completely, he sanded it smooth & made the cut-outs for the speakers & LED light bar/ switch. After sanding, he used some left over paint from the jeep & painted it to match. The speakers, light bar, & switch were installed on the sound bar & then the wires were run through the roll bar.
Does that help???
