Just finished installing the blue LEDs, they look awesome! Great writeup. Took me about an hour cause I had to clean each dash piece as I took it apart...never knew how much dirt was back there. Next will be the HVAC controls...

just did mine, looks great. i am sure its somewhere in this thread but i wont look through 52 pgs but if u do these bulbs make sure u buy an extra pair just in case one breaks or if one doesn't work because they r tiny bulbs. also if it doesn't work reverse the bulb most likely its in wrong. i bought my bulbs off of eBay much cheaper then the link posted here on the first pg and they look like the same exact bulbs. if your not in a rush to get them its worth the wait from Asia. here is the link http://cgi.ebay.ca/2pcs-74-37-Instru...item2eb59a725c
here is a pic of my dash with the bulbs

I'm pretty sure you can't change that color easily you would need a different display panel

I chatted with a rep on super bright led's an he said you can do it you just have to figure out what bulb you need. It would really complete the look, I don't think its against the law... lol.

Is there a way to make the gauges blue with the gauge needles a different color? I think that would look awesome.

I want that to! I want a green backlight with white needles. White on green looks the best.

I have a white Tj and I want to have the blue backlight with white needles to keep the theme of the outside and interior that I currently have. Plus It will be a lot different than anything else out there and it would be easy to read.
