You want extra vents?? ebay, junkyards are your best bet. the a/c knobs you just pull off and spray away. You can also pull the little plastic piece sand down and use some glass paint to change the color it lights up...or do an LED conversion.

Do you need a 2wd or 4x4 bezel?

I've got a few I'm in the process of modding, vents included.
Drop me a PM if you're interested.

As for painting them, Krylon Fusion works wonders on almost everything plastic.

I think it will look real good I say do it. I just did mine red and I am real happy with it. Don't forget to pop the little light parts out of the knobs.

Yeah pull all that stuff from the JY, Rangers and explorers have pretty much the same thing. You should easily find them man. Good luck!
