They are a little expensive and you need to find one that is compatible, but a female in the passenger seat can make for very pleasant driving. They can provide valuable assistance just when you need it. If chosen properly it really upgrades the wheeling experence.

Have you ever tried to remove your seat bolts? It's extremely difficult for the front two. Rear two even worse. By the time they got them out, you'd be back to your Jeep.

Actually, yes. I take them out to clean them when they get really nasty.
Looked like easy access in the picture.

A SPOT. That's a great addition to any offroad vehicle or hiker.
Edit: I just relized that's not actually your jeep

Only a woman would even think of removing a seat bolt to clean it. I have that box from Bestop as well. It is very difficult to see when it's closed even with the top down and doors off. I guarantee that you wouldn't be able to get my bolts off Kate. Wait, that doesn't sound quite right does it?

A cargo net behind the seats to keep the Aussie Posse in back where they belong.

I like that set up! Is that one purchase? Or all separate and you put them together in such a neato fashion?

How was the installation for these? I'm looking into them now...

+1 for this! Where did you source this from? Is it a kit or did you put the components together? What are the mounting brackets?

I bought a set of quick fist clamps:

Sutton Outfitters

Sheet-metal screws #10 inch and 1/2

Maglite clips, flashlights, shovel and ax came from Menards. I spray painted the shovel handle.

Total cost was about $50 with the flashlight being 50% of the cost

Allows for more visibility out of the front windshield.

^^^Do you remount the mirror or just simply turn it 180 degrees? Sorry, this is the first time i've heard of this, so I'm just curious.

I know this sounds silly, but can we get a picture? Do you really need to flip if over or can you just lift it up? The arm is dual ball jointed so couldn't you just rais it to the maximum height?

Rotate it 180*... Grasp the mirror fingers on top, thumb on bottom. Now move your fingers to the bottom and thumb to the top whist holding the mirror. It raises it due to the fact that the mirror is mounted off center on the mounting arm.

I'll check it out when I get home, but I never really had an issue with it being in the way.

After reading about it on WF, I did the mirror flip before even driving off the dealer lot. The double ball joint only allows it to go up so far and being over 6 feet tall it blocks some of my vision. Flipping it upside down simply makes it block less of my view. It's not a big difference, but it is noticeable.
