Put on these little stick on mirrors from Pep Boys and finally took the doors off. Not a bad mod for $4.30!

I am assuming this is a joke? The vent still rotates with the mirror on there, so if the doors and roof are on it is not an issue.

Awesome instructions on google to wire it to your high beams. Or put it under the roll padding on the driver side

I'm definitely not wiring it to high beams. Where in the padding are you talking about?

Do a search of this post, another member did it, I can't get a car never mind a jeep on my garage, I think if you unzip it fits on the driver door bar

In the b pillar up near the sound bar (pretty close to your left ear) where the front and rear sections of fabric come together in a vertical slit secured together with velcro. Open this area, and there is a small recess hidden in there (almost like it was made for a garage door opener...). Velcro it shut and voila! Super cheap mod.

Hope that works, if not I'll take it closer or what ever you want. Come in a well packaged cool little box.

Oh you can also see what I did today. Found a little mud hole. Unfortunately I think I splashed out most of the mud on the first run through kinda think mud. Ok fine it was really thick. Wish it was more liquid so it would have made a proper mess on the wrangler

Oh yea forgot the reception. It's better than no antenna though no antenna still gets reception. AM (listen to a lot of talk radio) has more low or dead areas (may be the area I was in) but don't get the static or that odd rf interference sound from the engine under overpasses like the stock. FM seems normal, didn't have any bad spots. Satellite, I actually think improved?!?!? Less dead spots and actually gets reception under overpasses. iPod, oh wait no change

Looks way better than the stock and unlike the stock, it doesn't distract you by flopping around while driving. Best part, don't have to take it off at the car wash. Also while it has a good tight fit, I put 2 dabs of lock tight under the lip so no one can jack it unless they put in some good time and effort. Lock tight doesn't bother me because I don't plan on ever taking it off until I get. Snorkel and which point I'll just relocate it either lower, to the driver side or get an internal that goes along the inside windshield frame hidden in the crack between the windshield and dash.

When I had them on I took off the double sided tape and used Velcro... you can't see it when the mirrors are off and in the glovebox!
