From Defiant Systems through another forum about a year ago: powder-coated, tinted glass, look great, work great.

Unfortunately, I think the vendor has imploded recently - there's been some not-encouraging posts on this forum over the past several weeks.

These were the ones I found at Wal-Mart for a few dollars.

Was trying to be cute referring to them as "cozies"
Might have to try those! We have a few different styles at Autozone.

Kenwood DNN990HD. It went to firmware 1.2.0. Also updated the bluetooth to 1.42.02 That made a big difference in data displayed for songs while connected via bluetooth.

Got caught in the rain for the first time with only a bikini top on her, No doors. If I had windshield wipers on the inside i would have been set. Everything was coated with rain water. I pulled in the garage wiped her interior down and all good.

Got to try out my new mirrors and new pegs also.

Gotta ask cuz I see so many people with them. Do you really stick your leg outside of the Jeep & actually use that peg?

It feels weird to have my leg inside the jeep when the doors are off!

first time wheeling in the area. Thought I would try out the new CB with a local. I was told all the ground was solid. First jeep made it about 5 feet. Hard to tell from the pictures, but there were a few large rocks (2-3' tall) that meant everyone had to go slow through the mud. I made it the farthest of the group, but didn't make it all the way through. Jeep I was with got stuck trying to get where I was to pull me out. Spent about an hour winching myself out and then going back to pull the other Jeep out.

There are two really easy solutions...

1) go to Google and type in spiderweb shade Jkini

2) Just go to spiderwebshade.com

I'm not sure how you could have trouble finding info on this product since its one of the most talked about ones out there.

Talking What I did to my JK today...

Went to 4wheelparts today and ordered 5x BFG A/T 285/75r16 tires, 5x Pro Comp series 1089 polished alloy wheels, a 1" font coil spacer to get rid of the rake and one of those doohickeys to re-calibrate my speedo for my new JKU Sport.
Will get installed in 2 weeks or so... Shipping to Hawaii...

Wife says I'm sleeping on the couch for the next 6 mo...
But I'll bet she will like the look of the Jeep when I bring I home from the install.
I'll post before and after pics if anyone cares to see them...:beer-drinking:

We've been in flood watch all day/night. Loved that we watched cars float away down the road but I ran out for pizza and blazed through it lol

Hope it stops for you but for me, in Mass, it's supposed to rain all weekend.

There is also a grill cover called a web and I didn't know which one it was.... Someone cleared it up for me yesterday but thank you for your input!

Looks like fun! I noticed the wire between your tailgate and the glass, if that's the COAX cable for the CB it may be helpful to know that you can run it through the tailgate and into the tub. You may already know that but I just thought I'd share what I did. Keep on Jeepin'!

These were made for a JK. Not sure why u say they were designed for the CJ, YJ and TJ. That was the whole reason for him selling a few sets so cheap. He didnt have access to a JK so he wanted the feedback to see if any improvements need to be made.

I love the way it looks

What works well are the jeep grab bars. They tighten down well to hold my machete, scabbard and glock shovel.

I would love to be able to mount my Daniel Defense M4 where your axe is but, I don't know how lol. Setup looks great, man.
