First of all, please allow me to thank everyone on this forum and your contribution to the threads which I've read hundreds before deciding on a '12 JKUR. I've been wanting a Wrangler for decades, but had to "settle" for a Cherokee and then a Grand Cherokee in the past due to the need of having a vehicle not to hard to get in for an handicapped family member (now I have another car for her), my situation finally allowed me to go out and get THE Jeep that I really wanted. I've been wanting the Cosmo Blue ever since I laid eyes on one last year but when I started shopping seriously for one this past month, there were hardly any around as production on this color stopped last Nov. 21 (also my birthday, hehe). But with the help of the Internet and after visiting dealers from as far as 50 miles away, I found out my local dealer (2 miles away) had one in stock. I was going to get a Sport and then mod it but since this color was so difficult to find, I didn't want to pass up this Rubi. The 0% financing also helped me make up my mind to pull the trigger NOW.
I'm planning on installing the Lockpick and Sliders w/ steps but my questions are...
1. Where is the easiest place to wire the Lockpick up to for switched and constant 12V power?
2. Since the Rubicon already comes with sliders, which aftermarket sliders/steps would compliment the factory setup the best or should I just junk (or sell) the OEM sliders and get something new all together?
Any opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to the forum. Good looking ride you have there.
I can't help you with problem no.1
Problem no. 2-- Ace rock rails seem to be what most on here seem to like best for fitting with your factory sliders. Some one else will probably chime in here and offer some more advice.
Experience= What you get right after you need it the most!!
The Lockpick arrived and it turned out needing only to have the factory wiring harness plug into it for it to get power, the install is quite easy. So far I have an old Homelink mirror from another car installed, in the process of installing the front and rear cameras.
