I would go red or white. I went white in my '91, but my YJ is bed lined inside and out.

Man, I'm kinda diggin on that blue.

I'd have thought red, if you'd asked with no pictures.

But no. Blue.

My issue is red matches the jeep but that blue is too damn clean! However red doesn't dilate your pupils which will make for better vision at night, whereas the blue will dilate them so my vision is set for high light situation even though I'm trying to see in the dark. Decisions decisions

now i dont know how bright those blue leds are going to be, so it may not be an issue. I do remember when I had my satilite tunner installed, that used a blue LED screen, and at night, it would drive me nuts. many times, i would throw a hat over it so i didnt have to see the screen.
i doubt the in dash LEDs will be that bad, but it is something to thinik about.

I think the problem with the red is there are to many bulbs in the dash and they are shining around the black back i say if you take a bulb or 2 out they would look better and then you got to wonder what bulbs the blue are compared to the red cause i know they got like 120 and 360 degree bulbs or some thing like that but i would experiment with the red if you got a red jeep i think you could make them look a little cleaner.

I recently ordered blue LEDs. They look great and match my cd player which was really the deciding factor for me. If I ever have the money I'm going to get a green deck then do green LEDs to match my paint.

I have a red jeep. I went with blue leds because it looks great at night. Red can get a little tiring to look at night time driving

go with the blue.....have the 360 degree ones in mine, AND they work with the dimmer so you can tone them down....
