Installed this drop fold down table / molle bag hanger on the tailgate. The wife got this for me for Valentines day!

There is LITERALLY NO DIFFERENCE between the 430 and 430N except for the navigation(unless someone knows something that I don't).. $700? Really? I can get a couple of phone upgrades for that and still come out with some pocket change and a much higher resolution navigation solution... That I can take with me when I'm on foot and need it... Don't get me wrong, if it came from the factory in your rig, all the more power to you, but if you're upgrading from a factory unit to a factory unit, I just don't see the value there... Anywho... I LOVE my RBZ!
You make great points! Are there sound quality improvements over the RES unit?

That would help a lot, but if I get a trailer my toys would get to big to pull behind the Jeep. I need a truck so I can put the Jeep on the trailer.

Overhauled my OBA system.

So while out wheeling this summer I had a gauge line blow which crippled my on board air system to include ARB lockers. So I finally got around to redoing the manifold portion of my system I added in a pressure regulator to keep the PSI at the ARB solenoid’s at 100psi also will be running a digital glow shift PSI gauge with dual read out so I can see the tanks PSI and the PSI at the manifold and for the line going to my tanks I put in a cut out valve so it anything should go wrong in the system I can isolate it so I will still have lockers.

The open port facing up will be where the sensor screws into for the gauge.

Is that the Barricade bumper? If so, what do you think of the quality/fit? Mine was supposed to be delivered today but the NorthEast weather messed that up for me.

Honestly, it might just be me, but it really does seem like I get better sound... Deeper Bass, clearer highs... Seriously... More than likely, it's probably 99.999999998% all in my head, but it's like they say: Your perception is your reality.

I don't disagree for the most part, but when I upgraded mine, I was lucky enough to have found a 430N in like new condition out of a 3/4 ton Ram and I only gave something like $450 for it. It wasn't much more than the non navigation units were going for at the time. And now that it has been discovered that you can load your own maps on to the unit with a little work and a USB stick, I'm even happier that I got the Nav unit.

It really all comes down to what kind of deal you can find and what makes sense for you as an individual. If I hadn't been able to find the unit I did for the price I did, I likely would have upgraded to the non navigation unit too.
