Nothing, don't worry about it. It's a fad! You are my hero for not knowing what plasti dip is.

Nice You wouldn't have a picture of that by any chance would you? I have always wanted to make quick discos like the writeup on 4x4xplor but I don't like the idea of how quick the clevis pins wear down.

Its spray paint then you can peel off when you don't want it anymore. If you plastidip your tires you can peel it off and theyll look like new again. Kinda cool but I tried it and it came out terribly.

I have a 2013 JKUR, and one of the first things I noticed, was the lack of any lighting in the Dash Cubby, and the Console Deep Cubby.

Thought briefly about installing some hardwired lights in each. With the CANbuss being what it is, and my distaste for white light in the dark, I went looking for an alternative.

Bought 2 Princeton Tec FRED Hero Headlamps. About $25.00 each. They use 3 AAA batteries. First press of button gets you "low red", second press gets you "high red". If your first press is 2 seconds long, you get "low white" and second press gets you "high white". Third press always goes to off.



I took them apart (removed the light head from the base) and used a hot air gun to take the slight curve out of the base and make them flat. Do this carefully and all will go well...it would be possible to overheat them, just be careful. Then re-assemble the base to the light head...(Phillips Head Screws).

A couple of strips of VHB Double Stick tape.



Next post for the "done" pictures.

This one will swivel up enough to light the shifter area well if needed...



This one is the Dash Cubby... I can reach it fron the driver's seat easily...

13" rubber Off road antenna $16 from Amazon.com. Got tired of the stock metal one slapping the crap out of my windshield everytime I get into the brush.

I wouldn't say plasti dip is a fad, it's a newer product that has came out that a lot of people like all at the same time.
