I got the rugged ridge and could not be happier. Black was right on for 2013. Texture was pretty close as well. Ordered from quadratec and had the next day. Also got their switches as well.

Thank you I like them but in one review I seen they were complaining that it didn't cover all the way down to the dash so I was curious

The flash seems to mess up the black color. There is not much difference in daylight

I have the daystar panel and think it looks great..almost like oem. I installed 4 daystar rockers in it. Install of switches was very easy and install of panel was the same. Ill take pics tomorrow. Recommend daystar.

daystar's are Carling switches. Depending on where you live, you might be able to find Carling's locally at marine shops where you'll see fully sealed marine versions of very similar switches under 2 or 3 other brand names.
