My green Jeep has a black top and tan interior too - I wouldn't change it for anything.
A light colored interior 'feels' cooler in a warm climate.
Black interiors make you feel like you are sitting in an oven - and they look like caves

yeah that does make sense, ive decided that after i get my rampage top or whenever the good weather comes back to MD, (hopefully this weekend) i will get some hunter green paint and stripe the inside hunter green to match the outside. I STILL NEED SOMEONE to tell me how to get my headlight bezel out, i got 2 screws out already but 1 screw is stripped. WHAT DO I DO?

I did that before I removed the inserts. Just made sense to remove the biggest blocker of air trying to reach the radiator. I think I still have the inserts if somebody wants them.

I used a couple of coats of Duplicolor Black Out on my bezels and KC Highlights and footman until they looked like a kind of titanium color. Looked different, not quite chrome, but not quite black either.

Black seat covers will take care of the seats at a fairly low price. I have bestop denim front and back.

They are great.

nice tips! i used a large phillips head first..nothing
then a phillips with a rubber band... nothing
then a phillips with athletic tape around it (sticky side out) ...nothing

if you guys have ever heard of "shoe goo" ..im thinking about putting some on my stripped screw and letting it dry, then using a phillips again.

I WANT MY HEADLIGHT BEZELS OUT ALREADY. lol
