Thanks for the info, I've been shopping around town and the best price I can find is at my local farm store for $79.
And to contribute to the thread, I did a little wheelin' and pulled a chevy out of the mud!

Added a little Northern Patriotism to my 10A. Had the decals made up to match my OEM Rubicon decal.

I used to be stationed there and had much fun wheeling in my cj-5 back in the day.

I didn't think it was possible to wheel there anymore. Did they open it back up or do you have to know somebody?

It did come out quite easily. This is how i did it.

With the window open; pull of the cover for the wiper motor, remove all the electrical conections, the defrost wires are just snaped on, use a 10 mm rench and remove 1 screw, now disconnect the washer hose and plug it with the screw. Open the clips on the bottom of the window strut and remove. If your alone, this next part could be tricky, but with an extra set of hands it was nothing. Remove the rest of the screws and the window will be off. It took about a minuet to do. Cheers

No, it isn't open to wheeling. This guy was on a fishing excursion.

You can help get it back open though by signing this petition! Almost 1,000 signatures!

Thanks for sharing this. I signed it. Used to like there when I was 3, but don't remember it.
If there's not a thread already dedicated to this cause, I think it'd certainly be worthy of one.

Nice set up! Is that a Bestop bumper? That looks massive on your jeep.

Removed the disabled Karr (?) security system the dealer installed

Actually this was back on July 4.

I did not want this thing and I was unhappy when I saw that they had drilled two holes in the panel under the steering wheel on my new 13 Sport. It got worse when I started to remove it.

Sorry about the crappy pics. They were taken for my reference in case I needed to reinstall this thing. I was not sure what would happen when I removed it.

This is the main module loosely zip-tied and held in place with one screw behind the panel under the steering wheel. The screw below the unit was a ground from the wire bundle.

The red and yellow wires go to two wires crudely yanked from the harness and tapped. Really? It's ok to yank wires out of the factory wiring of my Jeep like that?

The black, purple, and brown wires coming forward, or downward in the pic, are to the smaller module that was screwed to the FRONT of the trim panel.

Another view of the wiring abuse:

The back of the modules after removal. The lower one is the main unit from behind the panel, and the upper on was screwed to the front.

The black and brown wires were tied together and tapped into another yanked out factory wire higher along the left side. I did not get a good pic of that spot.

Thanks man! Yea I have Bestop on the front and rear, and yes it is definitely massive compared to most jeep bumpers. I'm pretty sure it's an older version of that bumper though.
