Anyone installed the G.E.A.R Overhead Console Package by Smittybilt?

I ordered one and I was wondering if there were any pointers about the install, also any drawbacks I should know about. The tailgate door storage comes with it as a bonus. as I'm sure everyone agrees, I could use some extra space to stow equipment.

I got just the overhead console and installation was super easy. Only thing that annoyed me was that the instructions refer to one of the brackets as being used on "later model" TJs but it doesnt give a specific year so i accidentally mounted the wrong one initially but I needed the other. So i wasted a bit of my time but thats it. I have an 02' and mine uses the bracket that mounts onto the sunvisor brackets mount points. The other bracket meant for other TJs utilizes a footman loop. Oh and I might be picky cause I'm used to better quality stuff having being in the military but the pouches they provide are pretty garbage, in the sense of how they fit onto the base. The pouches material is very durable but the fit is just poor. Mines an OD green model. I can post photos if you like. It fits with my hardtop on, no problems with that or any intereference with my rearview visibility.

My favorite pouch has to be the registration/ insurance one, I have things packed in almost every one, just remembering what is in each one is the problem. but It takes away some of the anxiety of something blowing out. Thanks for the feedback
