Need help w/ dash removal!
 
I'm installing rock lights (see below) but I can't figure out how to get the dash off to access the wires to hook it all up. :mad: I know someone here has done it many times... Where are you?

The top panel (where the defrost vent is) pops right off. Then you have access to a screw on the top of the center portion of the dash. There is another screw inside the slot for the ashtray. (Not sure about it if you have the switch panel there). Once you get the center portion off, remove the glovebox and panel under the steering wheel.

You should have access to all of the wiring harnesses you would need to tap into from here.

i had to remove the dash for new lights in the gauge panel, and i got the directions on this site. http://dailydriventj.com/forum/viewt...c67d0a6c3f85c3

and for the center piece you follow the directions given by 02prov

Those 3 led thingy? I remember a thread called gauge cluster makeover or something of that sort.. replaced the lights in the cluster with 3 led lights so it was bright as hell. Let me see if i can find the thread...


When removing the glove box.. the strip that hold it up can just slide off to the side so you dont have to remove any screws.. just slide the strip off and put the box down and pull it towards the seat.

that upgrade was so worth it too I love mine. I actually got the UV ones to match the jeep's "in the sun" color (purple/blue in the sun, black at night) this was one of the easiest additions that I did.

I want to see pics! I'm thinking about going with the red LEDs to match the exterior instead of the blue.

Those are FKING sweet! Can you post a link to where I can buy the LEDs please? There's one at the top of this post but I can't find anything.

Triple88a 07-24-2007 12:40 AM

Triple88a 07-24-2007 12:47 AM

just saw it.. u only need 5 but i'd say get 6 just to have an extra one

RIPBiker13 07-24-2007 12:49 AM

Do I just need the lights or the twist lock bases also? I don't want to buy crap I don't need. Oh, and thanks! :D

Triple88a 07-24-2007 12:51 AM

you shouldnt.. you only need the lights since you reuse the bases from the original bulbs

keep in mind LEDs have + and - and will not work if flipped.. so if you install them and any of ur bulbs dont work.. flip them 180 degrees around..

RIPBiker13 07-24-2007 12:53 AM

How long do they take to arrive? I'm going to buy them right now. You bastards! You make me spend money! LOL :flipoff:

Triple88a 07-24-2007 12:56 AM

haha i dont knwo i never odered from that web.. usually a week max though

RIPBiker13 07-24-2007 12:59 AM

I just ordered them. I'll post pics when I install those next! :D Where did you get them from?

Triple88a 07-24-2007 01:03 AM

I got mine for my old car from radio shack.. i havent done any on my rig yet since i've been trying to get it all done and paid off first..

RIPBiker13 07-24-2007 01:05 AM

Radio Shack? Wish I thought of that! LOL

Triple88a 07-24-2007 01:07 AM

they were expensive there i think like 6.99 a light or something.. it was quite a bit memory though. Ended up costing me as much as getting a new cluster from ebay. I didnt know about that website back then. I'm going to sleep.. gnite all
