I was at work saw it was nice out so on my lunch went home got my tj. took the doors off and the back window and the side windows. Almost took the top off too. But didn't. This is the first time I have been able to do so. Also on my way back to work ran through a mud hole I made with my xj 3 years ago. Its still there. Today is going to be good. Going to make disconects and take my gf out on a trail for her first time.

Replaced the sound bar dome light and the lights under the driver and passenger dash with blue LED lights. Gives a more customized look.

The picture makes it look darker than it is....you can see fine with the blue LED lights on but it isn't as bright as the white lights. Changing the dome light and under dash lights is very easy. I bought the LED lights at superbrightleds.com and below is a picture of the invoice showing the details on the bulbs. The mod to change the instrument panel bulbs is a bit more work but not too hard....here is the thread I saw that gave me the directions on doing it: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f118/tj...eap-91949.html

mine have been on for around 3k miles. I have lost one and bent one. I used lynch pins instead of hitch pins, a little more secure.

To the blue LED guy, I had similar setup til I bedlined, now I just have them for my gauges, but a little diff. I fried my wiring for the gauges so I havce to fix those, but I just put them in the corners of the outside of the dash so the shine through. wish mine actually worked, lol.
