Need some opinions on an idea...
 
The other night I had a Ford Raptor come up behind me and it was right then that I realized how cool the 3 little lights above the grill look on those things. What do you guys think of doing something like that on my jeep? I would probably go with white LEDs instead of amber. Just looking for some thoughts and ideas...

Here is a pic if any of you don't know what I'm talking about:

Hmmmmm I kinda like the idea but I'm not sold on it yet... I LOVE the Raptors and their look...I think it could potentially be awesome! But what color...hmmmm

hmm.... i prefer the raptors w/o those 3 leds in the grill. Throws off the front end a bit IMO. Looking forward to seeing it done tho, may change my mind!

i wasn't a huge fan of the led's in the grill either until this one flew up on me, looked really cool in the rearview, mean to say the least lol.

it would just be 3 individual led's in top of the middle 3 grill openings, would look nothing like led brows in the headlights...

I forget what thread it was on but I saw a pic of someone who put small blue leds by the door handle so passengers would stop getting "lost" trying to get out. I don't know if I'd go blue but the led looked like it'd be perfect for what your talking about but not sure of a housing to put it in. I wonder if you could order the oem lights from ford and just change the led color?
