Yeah, my '06 has a panel there. Oh well, I quit smoking right before I bought it any way. Maybe when I get a winch I'll put some switches there for it.

Tan lights would look great up there with some black stone guards, Tan roll bars fantastic, tan light bar... ehhh, wouldnt be my choice but its not my Jeep either. Just think it will be too much.

Put LED's in my reverse lights today for a little change. I like em quite a bit and they were only $8.99 shipped on eBay. Coulda been cheaper but I got ones that light up 360 degrees since the bulb sockets in the stock tail lights are in there at an angle and I didn't want there to be an bright spots.
Pics of course

LED on left. Incandescent on right. Hard to tell in the pictures from the lighting and it being cell phone pics but the LED is definitely brighter.

And I'm sticking to my guns on the tan roll bars...

Use torn cardboard to make a green/tan camo pattern, saw an artist in Dallas do a sick sunset with spray cans and cardboard so why can't we use it for roll bars? That would give you a cool look and not overpower any one color. Just a thought though.

Ya he just ripped cardboard and angled it to get his lines, it was nuts.

Ya they are kind of small... I'd go green if you have tan interior (can't remember if you do or not) but if you don't the tan could be a cool offset to your body color.

My interior is black and I am going to paint the under steering whee,l glovebox, speakers, the small strip of dash just below the windshield and possibly speaker pods OD. I think the tan and OD would look pretty sweet too.
