I'm loving all the silver Jeeps here!

I've got a Silver Billet JLU with black top, black fenders, black rock rails, and black interior. I like the silver and black combination a lot, but has anybody here used seat covers to add a strong color pop to the interior? I'm tempted to try this but it's hard to visualize and I'm looking for ideas.

Thanks!
I went with Katzkin leather seat covers on mine with a two tone. Mine is a Sahara, but I installed black rubicon fenders, black accessories, and a matte black grille.

A question for follow JL owners . How do you find the brightness and performance of the reversing lights on your JL ? Compared to my Grand Cherokee they are like a candle , and compared to friends Cherokee the same , a candle . Whats your feed back ???
I have to back down my driveway which has retainer walls on both sides that I obviously would like to avoid. I find that doing this in my Wrangler is far more difficult than any of my previous vehicles since the rear lights do not provide enough light for the rear camera to be useful or see much out of the mirrors when it’s dark out.

I saw this on the JLwrangler homepage and immediately signed up. I won’t get them until December, but I’m hoping that they are far better than the OEM lights.

I agree with Jeff, they're not great. I'm very happy with the LED package, but underwhelmed by the reverse lights. I added to supplemental lights, which I wired into one of my aux switches. Problem solved.

LED reverse lights mounted on the rear bumer.

I closer look.

First is with the just the stock reverse lights.

This is with the additional lights on. I've adjusted the aim so there's more lighting to the sides. No sense in overlapping the beams in the middle.

Did you take the bumper off to do the mounting of the lights ? And was you bumper all steel or one with a plastic overlay ?

Two issues for me . 1) USA import here takes along time which would mean probably not until 2021 with the lead time in production. And 2) in Australia on my Overland ( branded Sahara in USA) the reflector these light replace has already been replaced with OEM rear fog lights .

I did the install with the bumper on the Jeep. It was a bit difficult at times but can be done. Taking the bumper off would make it a breeze, but I guess that depends on how difficult it is to remove the bumper (not very I suspect). Even with the bumper on it wasn't that hard to do.

My bumper has the plastic overlay. I had to be cognizant of where I was making the holes so I didn't inadvertently put them were a support rib was. There is a void below where I mounted them which worked very well to run wires and bolt the mounting bracket.
The steel bumper has a similar configuration so you could do the same on them. The biggest difference is that you'd obviously want to paint the hole and/or put silicone on it to prevent corrosion if you have the steel version.

Nice stance! What lift and tire size are you running?
