I have the 730N - like it a lot - the voice recognition is not what I expected; I though it would be better - curious if others feel the same way;

I also want the lock pick, but not sure how to take the front dash off and run the wires from the rear/front camera

Anyone who has the 430N how is it working for you?

I have a chance to get a really good deal on a new one but I wanted to hear others opinions on it first.

I really like my current Garmin GPS so that's definitely a plus.

I have both also. They work great using the ignition key.

Did you have your hood lock installed by the dealer? Some are saying that they can't get it to fit with the 2012 autos...(because of the cooler).

I have the MyGig Lockpick. I installed the rear backup camera over the weekend. I'm still trying to decide if my location for the camera installation on the spare tire carrier will work or not. I can see the back of the Jeep, but the camera is behind the spare tire looking between the spokes.

I took off the top half of the front dash that goes around the radio and the dash section above the steering wheel since they are one piece. I also took out the glove box to help with running wires. If you take out the rubber tray that is on top of the dash above the radio, you will find a small nut. Take out the nut and then gently start pulling up on the dash above the radio. You will start seeing how the upper part of the dash is one piece. Take that whole section off and then remove the radio by removing the 4 bolts that hold it in the dash. Follow the directions on unplugging and plugging in wires on the back of the radio. Run the wires behind the dash to the glovebox area and then along the bottom passenger side of the Jeep. Run the wires under the carpet and plastic covers that are below the doors and follow the vehicle wiring harness that goes to the back. Once the wires are in the cargo area of the Jeep, I ran the wires through the tailgate opening that is visible when you take off the black plastic strip that is on the tailgate that conceals other wires. I ran the wires through the tailgate and mounted the camera on the spare tire carrier. I used shrink wrap on the connections to try and keep water out of the connectors. I didn't take pictures of the installation, but I can take pictures of the final installation on the tailgate and how I ran the wires through the tailgate for you if that will help.

I took it to the dealer for installation at a cost of $40 labor, but that was after I started the install myself and realized that my rivet gun wasn't large enough for the rivets provided with the hood lock. I was able to get the holes for the rivets to line up on the hood lock and the mounting location behind the grill, but I had to push the hood lock against the auto cooler to get the holes to match up. If I had the larger rivet gun, I could have finished the installation easily. There are only 4 rivets that hold the hood lock in place.

Thanks. Which lockpick did you get chr550 or the v.4? Do you like it so far?

Thinking I might also mount the camera between the spare tire spokes. Here are some pics of wiring and also a different camera location (for those with the removable center cap)

Hey buddy, where've you been. This is a package I'd like to see in person......no not that package pervs lol. Seems like a lot of people mod their Jeeps similarly to this except this one would have Arctic specific badging. Thanks for the info.

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/rhb...ics-91466.html
A follow-on from my earlier post and to answer NDRubgy, I purchased the MyGig Lockpick v4 and so far I like it. I considered the 550, but I couldn't figure out how I would mount side cameras, so I just went for the front and back ones on the v4. The v4 has a 3rd camera option, but I'm not sure what I'd use it for. I probably won't use most of the features on the v4 because I primarily bought it for the backup camera, front camera, and the ability to unlock the nav so that a passenger can type in a destination address without the Jeep needing to be parked. I'm still waiting on a front vacuum canister relocation bracket to move the canister and replace the stock bumper with my new one. I'll install the front camera when I get the new front bumper installed. There are other options on the Lockpick that I probably won't use like playing a DVD while driving or connecting other DVD screens to the MyGig for passengers to view in the backseat. It has additional inputs for that stuff, but I don't need it right now, maybe in the future when my grand-daughter is older.

As far as part of the install, I took some pictures of running the wires through the tailgate and mounting the camera. I mounted the camera through the spare tire spokes because I already have my 3rd brake light mounted in the center of the spare tire where the center cap would go. I'm scheduled to get my lift done in about 10 days and the 35" tires with new wheels have a spoke pattern that will still work with the camera when I take off the stock tires/wheels.



The first picture shows the tailgate open with the black plastic wire cover removed and the camera wire running through a hole in the tailgate where the second white wire wrap is on the bundle of wires.

The fourth picture shows the tire installed and the camera is visible through the top spoke.

The last picture is of the 730N with the backup camera on.

As you can see in the last picture, the marker lines are slightly off because of the camera being mounted so high. According to the red marker lines, I'm about to hit my motorcycle that is parked in the garage behind the Jeep. In reality, there is about 3 feet between the Jeep and motorcycle. My primary purpose for the backup camera is to help eliminate the blind spot directly behind the tire, so I think the camera does a good job of that. I think that the camera marker distance lines would be more accurate if the camera was mounted closer to the ground, but I haven't discovered a good place to mount it close to the ground without drilling into my new bumper or mounting it on the receiver hitch and hope that it doesn't get damaged on the trails.

That gives me an idea. Maybe there's a way to make a removable hitch camera. That way it sits attached to the hitch, but can be easily removed (with wires that can be disconnected right there). Most of the time when I'm using a hitch the backup camera is useless anyway, so that would work perfectly.

I like the looks of this. It's clean and that's the bumper I think I'm getting, but you can obviously do this with any bumper.

That means it's sitting in a giant car carrying container with wheels that gets pulled by a train . It's at Toledo Walbridge, right?. This is where the train heading east and south will pick up the railcar and take it to where it will be unloaded. I assume Florida for you, since it will have to get on a boat to get to you.

And it has the unstoppable, super Pentastar. It just drops a propeller into the water when it thinks it's going to sink...

Congrats to all those receiving their Jeeps.

BTW: Who wants to talk me into or out of adding the 730N? I keep going back and forth on it. I think I can get one plus the lockpick, plus a rear camera for a couple hundred less than factory for the HU alone. Almost seems worth it then.
Love the plate! Go Irish!

I like that implementation. My camera won't work in that configuration because it is meant to be mounted on a license plate, but I could drill two holes in the bumper and mount it that way. I'd be concerned that I would hit it though, since it would be exposed. I'd probably have to get a smaller camera. I found the link for that bumper/camera install that you posted. It is on the AEV forums
http://forum.aev-conversions.com/sho...4&postcount=65, so now I know how to install it in the bumper if my spare tire carrier choice doesn't work out. Thanks for the bumper camera photo. I knew it could be done, but I wasn't sure how to go about it.

Do you have any information on the type of camera that was used or a link to how it was installed in the bumper? The bumper looks like it is from AEV. I opted for the Expedition One trail series bumper. The AEV bumper was my second choice.
The camera, no grid lines, but it's CCD, 180 degree viewing and .2 Lumens. Sounds good:

Rocky Americas - Special Design Small CCD Embedded Mount Color Wide View Angle Vehicle Rear View Backup Camera

Here's the write up (not overly detailed). He has a 37" on, and you see a bit of his tire, with a 35 I bet it's no issue. Right below the post is one from a guy that did the same on the stock bumper.

I got my AEV Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier!!! - Page 7 - American Expedition Vehicles - Product Forums
