Woops, Durr, of course you don't you're in the US. For some reason I confused your signature picture with Frango100's. He is located in Brazil/Brasil and his Jeep is an export which is why I asked that question.

It's a headlamp ON indicator. I don't know when it was changed but mine says CRUISE on that part of the dash.

Re: Whats this light for?

The rear fogs have a yellow indicator light a little bit above the front fogs indicator light.

Ah, sounds like maybe the 99 and 00s use this light for headlamp on, the cruise light on mine is integrated into the odometer.

Ok so that light is definitely not for rear fogs then, got a pic of the rear fog light light?
