Thanks again to the forum for all the resources on how to do this quick and easy change out. The gauges are not this glaringly bright in real life, just a cool, clean blue that matches up nicely to the stereo.
Still working on the HVAC controls as i got the wrong sized bulbs. If anyone can give me any suggestions for proper bulb size on an '03 TJ, or refer me to a thread about it, I'd greatly appreciate it. Enjoy.
