I'm going to be a guinea pig and try THIS!!

I have one coming. Hopefully, it'll be here by the first of next year since it's coming direct from Hong Kong.

Here's a youtube of one on a Volkswagon, but the idea is the same.

That's actually pretty cool. For $25 you really can't go wrong.

That's what I thought. The various youtube videos is what sold me. The thing must be pretty bright, as a couple of youtubes show the logo on the ground at what looks like dusk outside.

I figured a Jeep logo lit up on the dirt on a trail would be a conversation starter.

The tracking number is live, and the package has been accepted by the People's Republic of China. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to get here.

I very well may join you as that is really, really cool. I would be the follower, however, as I will wait to see how yours turns out! Thanks for blazing the path.

They must spread out pretty wide, because a door isn't that far above the ground. Another cool idea might be to mount one up above the windshield, and have a Jeep logo lit up on top of the hood. (Might distort though, because of the angle needed) Or... shine one out behind from the bumper, so people following can see a Jeep logo following along right behind it.

When I get the things in my hot mitts, I'll play around. They may or may not end up shining down from the doors.

Maybe mount them on the mirrors, so a Jeep logo appears on the sides of the doors when the lights are on.

I was thinking it may look cool putting it in the rear hatch when you have it opened too. Or even replace the rear dome light somehow so it shines down on the back of the third row (or custom box).

Here's the same seller with an unspecified one. (You tell them the logo you want) There's a picture of all the available logos. You might email 'em and see if they can make something special.

THEY CAME!!! Two weeks to the day from China.

There is a but and however... I got a set of Jeep logos, but the Chrysler ones are Chevrolet instead.

But and however (again) my old 1967 Chevy truck is begging for those, so... maybe a floating Chevy logo (complete with gold, silver, and blue colors) floating alongside the truck at night maybe? There's no electrical in the doors, or even a dome light switch for that matter. I'm thinking project 'em down on each side from somewhere under the cab.

Anyway, here's a Jeep logo on the (filthy) floor under my workbench: I'm holding the projector about 30 inches from the ground. Notice my shoes in the photo.
