My Wife Mod complained about how dark it was in the jeep at night when you opened the doors and got in. She said she could not see any thing with the stock over head cabin light. My answer was to install day time driving lights. Cost is about 11 dollars for the led light strips off eBay, I solder the wires to the stock over head lights. The result was Wife Mod freaked out said the international space station could see the Jeep when the doors were open. So to again please the Wife Mod, I installed a small rocker switch on the front of the sound bar to control the front led light. I leave it in to off position and only when I need to see real well in the front seat area do I switch it on. Only The rear led light comes on when you open the doors or turn on the over head light with the column light control or you can just push the left light switch on the stock over head light and it will come on. Best mod yet.

Did you install the switch and did it come with the seat heaters?

Best Mods:

Removing the headrest from the rear seat of my two door JK. Now I can actually see if someone is behind me when I look in the rear view mirror.

Disabling the seat belt chime, so I can drive my Jeep for a hundred yards offroad without my seatbelt on if I want to, and not have to listen to the incessant dinging.

Turning off the TPMS with my Procal, thereby eliminating another source of dinging.

Now if I could just disable the other electronic nannies, starting with traction control, I would be getting somewhere.

You can actually wire a kill switch for the traction control. I haven't done it yet, but I need to take a look at the wiring schematics.

Best Mod. Tuffy Security Deck. I carry anywhere from 10-30K in camera gear with me. I feel a little better leaving the jeep unattended with the top down. Sure, it won't stop someone determined but it helps.

Worst Mod. Tuffy Security Deck. Well now when shooting with a tripod, I have to collapse the legs to fit it either in the Tuffy deck or backseat. I can't just open the tailgate and throw it in.

I want my cake and I want to eat it too.

Complete all steps within 60 seconds.
1. With the ignition off, buckle your seatbelt.
2. Turn your ignition to the "ON" position.
3. Wait until the "Fasten Seatbelt" reminder light goes out.
4. Unbuckle and rebuckle your seatbelt a MINIMUM of 3 times, ending with the seatbelt buckled.
5. Turn ignition to "OFF".

AFTER step 5 you should hear a chime to indicate it has worked. To turn the seatbelt chime back on, repeat the process.

That is just what I needed for the deer lease. At 530 AM out in the quiet night, it is amazing how loud that dern thing is. Not stealthy in the least...

Blue anodized valve stem caps was a huge mistake. Thought they'd look cool with the Hydro blue. Yuck. Too tuner looking.

Best prob the Mopar light bar. Love it.

My best mod was the regear to 4.10s, followed by the spiderwebshade. Worst mod was the 295/65r18 e rated duratracs. Man, those road terrible.

Best mod #1


Best Mod #2


Its really hard to describe the difference a set of full width Dana 60s makes. The strength improvement is one thing, but another thing I have noticed is the improved suspension and stability. The 82" track width makes it feel like it corners on rails. Side to side rocking of the suspension is gone. Sidehill capability is better by a mile, and the Jeep will do steeper sidehills than I dare to try. You can't make it feel tippy. Changing axles has made the Jeep feel like an entirely different vehicle. This mod is highly recommended.

Is that switch "peel and stick"?
