    I'm replacing the dash panel in the Ren so I can arrange things to my liking, and get rid of the hacked up panel I have now.

    What do you guys think about color.

    I'd say body color, although my Dad's dash is black, and it looks pretty good on his yellow Jeep...

    I went w/ body color on the 6, and it looks great, but came very close to making one out of brushed alum.

    If your jeep is pink you might need to paint your jeep to match your dash color.

    If trying to keep it original - same color as body.

    If going for a really cool look - one I would like to do someday, go for the swirled look like the top of my toolbox:

    They came stock with exterior color. After looking at brite sunshine yellow for awhile, I decided on changing to black. Be sure to use gloss, otherwise it stains when mudding.

    I vote body color. Had a diamond plate aluminum one in the '6 and took it out. Just not retro/cool enough for me. Nickmil
