On my '09 there are screws hidden behind/above rear cupholders,(iirc) and down the sides by seats and the front sides. Prob easier to get about 12 mousetraps and 12 varieties of cheese and experiment what kind they like most?

Talking about the red slide that is part of the harness plug or the plug itself? If just the red slide clip, don't worry about it. Took mine all the way out the first time I ever took the doors off, nearly a year ago.

No, unfortunately I broke the black push tab in the middle. I am looking at maybe doing a quick fix with Velcro on the side wall. That should keep the two ends together. It will be interesting once I have to put doors back on.

I broke two of mine, considering breaking the other two! Without the push tab they pull right apart and stay together just fine.

Installed bestop under seat lock box. Went for a ride and got caught in some rain with the top off. Man you haven't lived till you've driven 70 on the interstate in a down pour with only a spiderweb sun shade.

Love the lock box. That was my second mod.

I also love the drain plugs. Nothing better when you've gotten stuck on a freeway without doors.

Added some cool Maryland flag Jeep stickers to the sides of my rig and checked Quadratec about 900 times to see whether my winch has shipped yet.

Cleaned the road spray off of the inside of my windshield and my rear-view mirror.

Talking Shocks

.............. I installed my Blistien Shocks (5100's) today The front pair were dogs, especially the passenger side Gotem from Northridge 4x4 (NO backorder either)

Am surprised at how much like a marshmellow the "stock-shocks" are. Heck I can compress them with almost NO effort However, the Blistiens, well you need to be an NFL Q-back to compress em

The ride, well it is different all together

She leans very-little in curves, not rough as I had heard, however, I have not had the chance to get on my Mtn Trail to check the shocks!

ANd yes, being on my back under the Jeep for hours and trying to compress the Blistiens to hookem up, well, I am sore as HELL

Thank the Lord it's over! Now if my Hothead liners would just get here

OH! If you live in the Forest, VA area and want my old shocks (5200-mi on them), they are yours (U pickup)
