Is this correct?
No idea - I have a 2d, heh.

The Sunrider softtop uses the rear bolt hole to secure the side rail for the top

The tail lights are still an issue. The new resistors didn't help. I took the tail lights to professional installers who also had no luck - they think the lights are defective so I am sending them back. I will let you all know how Recon handles it.

I also received the spacer from Teraflex - necessary for stock wheels on the TF adjustable tire carrier. I tapped out the original wheel studs with a 3lb hammer and hand pressed the new longer wheel studs - this time in the lowest setting. My 285/75s still clear the bumper by about 1.2"
JD, thanks for posting that. If you are at 1.2 then mine should fit the bottom holes as well. So how is the view put he back?

View is great! Definitely test fit before pressing the studs all the way if your tire's actual measurement is around 34" and up. My 285/75 AT2s measure out at about 33"-33.25" My guess is that the 10A bumper with the TF tire carrier studs in the bottom placement will fit around a 34" actual tire measurement on stock wheels. That is pretty darn good - the TF setup was pricey but definitely maximizes the view.

I like it

Where did you get the TF stuff?
I bought through Quadratec. Morris 4x4 had the better price by about $35, but if you like ordering through Quadratec then you can ping them to price match. Of course you should never pay shipping at either place. If you link in through google shopping you automatically get the free shipping and don't have to bother with a code or pm'ing the Quadratec rep.

Very nice.
I did the 13" Rubberized Antenna X one just today
Very similar to what I put on my Ram

Check out River City Offroad - they have an ongoing discount code for an SPod which was 10% off. Since you are in CA like me, do not order direct from 4X4SPod or you will get hit with taxes. I ordered the compressor gauge and ARB harness - $478 base plus tax put me close to $530 when priced direct through 4X4SPod, but with River City it was $430 shipped with discount and it was dropped shipped from Valencia so it arrived in 2 days. Otherwise, no discount from EAD Offroad but you might be able to avoid taxes going through them. Those are the only three places I checked out - good luck. We will have to meet up sometime once our initial rounds of mods are complete!

Thanks JD, I'll,check it out...and yes we will. There was a meetup last night in Murrieta and today was the national top off day, my wife worked last night and tonight, so I had to forget about all of the fun stuff going on this weekend.

Installed JW Speaker headlights. The only thing driving me crazy is the flickering.

Had them installed at Wheels Plus in Edmonton. He is also doing tires in the next couple of weeks.

I am seeing if the AEV Procal will help with the lights - I am looking at setting the DRLs to my park lights instead of the headlights.

This can be done with the AEV procal?
I'm interested for sure as I'd like to do this too...

I've been doing some searching on the forum and from what I have read is the Procal plugs into the OBD port and gives you a lot of options about DRLs, rehearing, speedo reset, etc. pretty handy if you go to larger tires.

The cost where I am is $170. Just not sure how much work this is or if the Procal stays plugged in or if it may screw up the electronics.

It's solid/stable and easy with dip-switches and directions. Is removed from he port once set, but retains info, so is only good for one vehicle.

Do keep me posted on this. Especially the DRL. It may sound odd to our fellow Americans, but moving the DRL function elsewhere is pretty cool
Especially cause I'm thinking of doing retrofits on mine vs the LED headlights.
Although I do love the lighting you went with

What storage option do you prefer for the soft top windows? I searched the topic threads and the issue of fit for the 2013 windows, apparently are larger. Any experience with an option where the windows fit without folding? Thanks

Replacement hard too still in route, so going to try the soft top until then on my 10A.

Finally got the stereo system upgraded. The only thing you can see that looks different than stock is the new 'shelf' in the trunk/rear. The amps are under the driver and passenger seat, sitting off the floorboards by 1 inch to avoid possible water. The Focal components are in stock location, can't tell anything is different. Deck is a Kenwood DNX9990, lots of equalization and crossover controls. My sub is a 12w6v2 in that box firing down (reason for slit at bottom) and it hits HARD! I actually listen to a little bit of everything from Stevie Ray and Bad Company to some R&B and Volbeat, sounds good with all of it.

Seats still fold down and that box can be removed easily with a quick disconnect if I need the space. I'm going to remove the stock sub box once I get the replacement panels. Actually looking to swap my stock sub box panel w/sub for someones stock panels.

I now have the stock speakers, amp, and sub w/ panel available. $200 plus shipping or $100 plus shipping if I get your rear passenger paneling for the trunk.

I'm not sure if I already asked in this thread or not, has anyone installed a secure box for storage yet? I'm looking between the smittybilt and the Aries lockable. Wanted to know if anyone else had installed something.
