Maybe I got a bad one but your antenna sucks , yes it looks good but I can not even turn the radio on because all I get is static sound of the station fading in and out

I gave up on it and now I use my phone to listin to the radio

Maybe the guys who like it live near a radio tower , but where I live it sucks

I just replaced my antenna with this one also. The stations that were questionable before are now really bad. The ones that were strong are still fine. Guess it just depends on where you live and how strong the stations are.

If I use my little Sony mp3 player (with FM tuner) and connect it with a 3.5mm cable, some of the stations actually sound better than they do with the stock head unit and my 13" stubby. From a RF engineering perspective, that's always been kinda weird...

Just ordered the Smittybuilt Cargo restraint ($89 right now) and the Mopar door sills ($30). Can't wait for them to come in!

I used 4 electrical box hole plugs and painted them to match Jeep. Then I removed the windshield bump stops and tie down loop and put them in, cleaned up the hood. I know some say the bump stops and tie down loop are a "Jeep thing" but I like the look. I will never put the windshield down so works for me.

I'm wanting to do this, what size plugs worked for the hood holes? Any pictures you could share of the final results?

I think the plugs were about 1" I left the rubber part on the top side of the hood. Sorry don't know how to do the picture thing, I'm a computer idiot, and to old to learn.

I bought two of those velcro shoulder pads used to cushion the seat belt across your body. Put them on the vertical part of the belt. Eliminates all flapping.

Sun fade fenders + fusion paint = new

Step 1, remove renders or tape off and cover your jeep
Step 2, SImple Green or other degreaser cleaner on the fenders
Step 3, FUSION by krylon in black coat and recoat until grey is gone.

Reverse step 1...

Subbed, I have the antenna, anthracite plasti dip for my OEM 17's coming this week. Also got some grab handles (that really helps a lot). I have a lease so cant do a lot, but once I actually buy my next one, woohoo

I have no idea; but, I think the better solution is to wrap the vertical part of the seatbelt straps with padded shoulder straps found at Wal-Mart. Doing so accomplishes the same thing.

Yes. $6 total and solved the problem. Don't even notice they're there.
