And, of course, there is always the big Q (Quadratec).

Define "stuff"? I personally have a little rubber devil duck that co-pilots. I've seen hula girls, a working lamp, tiki statues. (all are in the above storage bin above the radio and I have to assume the taller objects were glued in place)

As for other places, you could always add fire extinguishers, grab handles all around, paint half your dash to match or contrast with the exterior, Christmas lights all around your roll bars, hang disco lights from the speak pods.

Any of this working for ya?

If ya like that brushed nickel look, you can swap over your HVAC nobs and shifter handle if you have a 6 speed. Pull the rug and bed line the floors. Change all the interior lighting to LED lights to match or contrast.

See that's the kind of ideas I'm talking about!!! I have seat covers. An automatic. And it's a jeep truck so I only have the front half of most jeeps. I've heard of sticky LED lights and I'm looking into those. Thanks everybody!!! I just love all the cool, new ideas.

I thought you had a couple of 06 TJ's, but you have a older Willys truck also? It's an automatic, what kind of motor is in it? I did a wrinkle finish paint job on the dash of an older CJ I had years ago, it looked nice compared to the paint that was on it.

Go to ur local auto parts and get flexible led strips they come in all array of colors. Connect them to your running light switch so when u turn ur lights on they will also turn on or put them on a toggle switch and u controls when u want them on. While ur there get some metal specs spray paint to match ur color scheme and some clear coat to seal it in. As for ur seats, I would recommend some seat covers so u can change then when u want. Change ur gas and brake petals to ur liking. Here is a link of some eyelashes for ur lights u can paint then to match ur interior http://www.amazon.com/Installation-A...ight+Eyelashes
Just a few suggestions leave a open mind, if u can think it I'm sure u can make it happen. Just take ur time building ur list of stuff u want. Have fun with it.

Have fun with it! DIY

Paint it
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/tire...it-152938.html

Convert your dash to LED with the colors of your choice
http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/inst...eds-80074.html

Seat covers, bedline the tub, storage, etc.

Instead of painting it... Do you think I could make it match my camo seat covers with some sort of covering on the plastic like they have on vehicles? Not tape...

That'd look pretty unique and cool. Check out fleabay for some vinyl patterns. I'm not sure how well it would adhere but probably worth a shot. Most of the time it all comes down to the prep work.

You may be on to something with not painting but using wraps (vehicle wraps or skins not sure what they call them) that's a very good idea they make wraps for everything from guns to vehicles. They can be very rugged also seen a few on atvs. You may research that more and let us know if u go with that. And of course we will want pics!!!

As other have pointed out, an EBAY search for "Wrangler interior" will get you a lot to look at.

Additionally, try swinging by your local Harley Outfitter....bikers are almost as fanatical as we are when it comes to tricking out their rides. I got a leather wrap to go around my "Oh shart" handle in my TJ....looked kinda spiffy.

But the best way...aint on the internet or through catalogs. It aint over night and it aint in a hurry...when you are bored and have time...wander through some parts stores. Pick-up a do-dad here, and a thingamajig there...

Assemble what you like into what you want. "assemble" has many definaitions.
