I made a piece to fill in the gap behind the rear seats when they are folded down. I have my dane mix in the back a lot of the time and I am always concerned that he was going to get hurt.

NAV-TV Customer service is exceptional, quality is very high- walked me through the install and even wired in a relay before sending it to me- plug and play essentially. Only had to splice negative and power from camera to the harness (easy clip splice). Took some time to remove trim and run wires from front to back but there are youtube videos to show you how each piece comes off. I'm a gal, not mechanically inclined at all - if I can do it on my own, anyone can. Rear view from the JK is limited with tire, brake like and wiper motor - camera covers blind spots as well. Drilling hole for camera was challenging as the stock bumper is hollow and deep - but with a little effort and some silicone sealant all was well.
Thanks so much!!!!! I've got so much to do...

I just ordered my 2.5" OME lift and Off Camber Fabrications Front Bumper w/Light Bar. Should be here in a week. Last month, I added Custom Painted Fuel Revolver rims. I'm going to run out those stock BF Goodrich M/T's then go 33's or 35's.

At the dealership now getting an oil change, front end alignment and a tire rotation. Then working on my grill mod later today.

Anyone change their tires in the winter? I kept the tires my Rubicon came with, but here in the sorta northeast, I've noticed they don't like rain or ice. I've been thinkin about gettin something more "all-weather" because I also take it on long trips (600+ miles one way). My questions are:

Is it worth the time and expense?
Do you notice a significant difference in gas mileage with an all-weather as opposed to the factory Rubi tires.

Thanks!

Looks real clean.

PS I washed and waxed my jeep for the first time, but that was last weekend.

Thanks I like how it came out.

It was really easy. I used an 8" (actual width about 7 1/2) wide 48" long 1/2" piece of wood that I found at Home Depot in their trim department (10 dollars) and cut the length to fit between the seat belts. It was 39 1/2 long. I also picked up the roll of outdoor carpet (10 dollars) from home depot and cut it to size and used Liquid Nails to attach it to each side of the board. I even sprayed the edges of the wood black before I attached the carpet just to help it blend in. It probably took 20-30 minutes and cost around 22 dollars. The carpet helps blend it in but also provides good traction for my Dane mix.

Well I think you were right. The computer showed almost 21 mpg on the 12 mile ride home. They also flashed the computer to reset it.

Made sure it still fit into the garage with the sun rider folded back after the lift was upgraded. It fit no problem. Glad I didn't go any higher though!

Also felt lots of Jeep love today. I left the house in it once for 20 minutes to go pick up dinner from Outback. While on my trip the waitress told me how much she loved my Jeep when bringing the food out and asked me lots of questions about it. Then a group of chicks walking by all stopped and giggled telling me how cool my Jeep was and that they all wanted one just like it. Then 3 older teen boys pulled up to me at a light gawking and telling me how much they liked my Jeep. Seemed like a lot for such a short trip.

This is exactly what I need to do next. Thanks for sharing the plans.

On another note I started primed my Wurx bumper for install. Wanted to get it done a week or two ago but had some travel planned and didn't know I was going to have to cut the frame to mount it. Going to be a longer process than I thought.
