Idk? I just researched the 3.8. I know it doesn't work on the 2011-12 due to some kind of computer issues.

Looks like 2010 and before 3.8 and 4.0 so far. They've stated that they are working on newer models.

The package also shorted 5 washers. It's supposed to fit 2013 JK but they omit to tell you there is a thick metal flange inside the lower left area of the tailgate where you must drill one of the mounting holes. You get through the sheet metal and then hit the flange. Be careful drilling through it or you will risk puncturing the outside of the tailgate when your bit breaks through. Harder than it should be to install but the table should be useful for car camping, tailgating, tool storage.
I added a cutting board!

Don't understand the tingling comment, but the table is not installed flat side out. It's installed just the way Vector shows it. Also, I think Vector originated the table and others make knock offs.

Sorry dam auto correct that was suppose to be " getting around the patient"

If you notice the pictures in the post just above yours, that is the original design, and it is flat side out. Here is a link to the thread on the tail gate storage as well as the other stuff he does http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/fan...on-186396.html

Proof I'm a newbie...at least I hope I get better at this...

Day 4 of cleaning after mud bog...detailed interior, removed red ga clay stains, fine detailing, cleaned and conditioned plastic windows, destained and conditioned black part of rear windows, cleaned carpets (once again thinking of removing permanently) all that fun stuff. (Qtips were involed and small detail brush) Good times, lol.

Day 3 took to self car wash, sprayed underneath
Day 2 pressure wash entire exterior and underneath
Day 1 sprinkler underneath, hose exterior

I'm thinking Day 5 will be me on a skate board under her, the pressure washer and some sponges, engine cleaning and then another good hand wash and detail...maybe.

1 day of fun, a week of cleaning...only to book a camping mud/trails trip in a week, tehehe. I will never learn...thank goodness. Clean, mud, clean again. Love it!! (To my passengers....when I say roll up the window, what I mean is roll it up or u will be cleaning her with me dang it. Everyone wants to play, but no one wants to clean...I'm gonna start banning passengers, who am i kidding no I'm not, as soon as I see mud I'm too excited to care, lol)

I was thinking about gearing my tranny until I mentioned I would be going bigger. So the guys at 4wd suggested I try this first. I was struggling to maintain highway speeds due to my tires and lift. Now I have to watch my speed because I drive so fast.
This would work so much better for me if I knew what a OBDII port was...

My last real build was a .30 over Chevy 350 with a Holley double pumper hooked to a Turbo 350 and Dana 4:10.

Having said that, I'm willing to give it a go. My highway mileage sucks and with my current run to work being 2.5miles, I'm buying Euro gas at a ridiculous rate. And the coolness factor is worth a couple of bills alone.

Ebay. Where else?

They have all kinds of switches for offroad vehicles. Some specify Dually D2 lights. One specifies winshield lights. One specifies rear lights. They even have them that specify 18" LED, 40" LED, etc. Very OEM look until you read them. I don't want labels on my dash.

Look for something under the dash that looks like this -



It's the ODBII port.

OBDII is the plug under the dash. "On board diagnostic 2". When a tech would plug in a tool that tells him what fault codes if any. It's just under the lip of the kick panel under the drivers dash.
