An ambitious list! Good luck, and congrats on the new Jeep. Great color, too (my Anvil just hit Paint yesterday, can't wait).

Thank you. It will take some time obviously, but little by little

Good luck on your wait. Hopefully you get it soon.

Went ahead and installed a few things today.

McGard 76060 4-Door Lock Set
Mopar Wheel Lock Lug Nuts
Rugged Ridge Black Grille Inserts
Rugged Ridge Black Rear Euro Tail Light Guard
Daystar Hood Latch
AntennaX - 13-inch

Was looking forward to installing my Mopar Hood lock, but had a problem with it. Went ahead and as per instructions tied to code the key to the lock. Turned 180 degrees clockwise then back but the key will not turn. Was able to pull the key out in the locked position, put the key back in but no go. Something is not right and the lock will not budge. So hopefully I can get a replacement soon.

I like the Anvil Color, but it seems to me that almost everyone wants that color. I have a Black 2000 Harley Davidson Softail Duece so it only seemed like the way to go for me was getting my X in Black with Black Leather Interior and they look so great together!!!! MADE IN USA!!!!!!!! and loving it!!!!

Nothings exciting going on today. Got a screw in my brand new tire a day ago, so will be replacing it with the spare. I want to take it in tomorrow to get an internal plug put in.

Have a few things on order:

Mopar Hood Lock (replacement)
IPF H4 Headlight Conversion Kit (backordered)
Clear Side Marker Lens Kit with Amber Bulbs
Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS
PAC RP4-CH11


Should have this hopefully next week to keep my self a little busy.

Installed clear side markers today. Surprisingly it was a pain in the a** to install, but its done. It does clean up the front a bit with no ambers.

Received my Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS and PAC RP4-CH11 Factory Integration Adapter.

Started reading both wire diagrams and here is what they have:

On my Pioneer Harness:
1. Yellow - Connect to constant 12V supply
2. Black - Ground
3. Orange/White - Connect to lighting switch terminal
4. Red - Connect to terminal controlled by ignition switch (12VDC)
5. Yellow/Black - Mute
6. Violet/White - Reverse Gear Signal Input
7. Blue/White - System Remote Control
8. Light Green - Parking Brake

On my Pac Harness:
1. Yellow - Battery +12v
2. Black - Ground
3. Blue - Antenna on input
4. Red/White - Parking Brake Output
5. Purple/White - Vehicle Speed Output
6. Blue/White - Amp Turn on Input
7. Red - Accessory Output
8. Orange/White - Illumination Output
9. Green - Reverse Output

Based on the documentation and my research here is how I wired it up:

Pioneer Harness >>> Pac Harness
---------------------------------------
Yellow - Connect to constant 12V supply >>> Yellow - Battery +12v
Black - Ground >>> Black - Ground
Orange/White - Connect to lighting switch terminal >>> Orange/White - Illumination Output
Red - Connect to terminal controlled by ignition switch (12VDC) >>> Accessory Output
Light Green - Parking Brake >>> Red/White - Parking Brake Output OR parking brake bypass
Blue/White - System Remote Control >>> Blue/White - Amp Turn on Input OR to aftermarket amp OR UNUSED if head unit powering speakers
Violet/White - Reverse Gear Signal Input >>> Green - Reverse Output
UNUSED Pioneer Harness Yellow/Black - Mute (used when muting of an external accessory required)
UNUSED Pac Harness Blue - Antenna on input (used for certain powered antenna applications)
UNUSED Pac Harness Purple/White - Vehicle Speed Output (Used for certain nav applications)

Also as per Pac instructions, "Vehicles with a factory amplifier: The factory amplifier only accepts two
channels of audio input (left and right). Connect the front outputs of the aftermarket radio to the rear inputs of the vehicle connector."

I have not connected the new radio yet, but hopefully I will get a chance in a day or two.

Still waiting for my rear view camera to be connected to the setup as well. I still need to figure out and fabricate a bracket to mount a camera on the rear tire mount.

Got my replacement Mopar Hood Lock and got it installed. Dam those rivets are huge, and the riveter is a monster, but that thing is not going anywhere lol. Had to trim off the top portion of the Rugged Ridge Grille Insert, but came out good.

Here is a quick pic:

Also removed the badges from the sides (Wrangler unlimited), to leave space for the new "Zombie Outbreak Response Vehicle"

Wanted to remove the Jeep badge from the Grill to replace it with the black one, but it is raining a little so will have to wait probably till tomorrow.

I try to do little something every day, as much time as I have between work, business, and kids

So I installed a black Jeep badge today.

The whole blackout thing is looking good so far (I think). Will try to take some real pictures as soon as I will have my Rigid Industries Duallys installed.

Once I will receive the new IPF H4 Headlights, I also want to paint the chrome rim around the headlight flat black.

I like it! I also installed the hood lock and black logo on front of mine too. I thought my hood lock was giving me trouble when I first inserted the key but after a few jiggles it was fine. And ever since I installed it, it hasn't given me any problems.
Here is my zombie response badge....

Just installed a Bestop HighRock Under Seat Lock Box. Had to remove the bracket from under the seat that hold the heated seat harness.

Unfortunately in NJ there is almost no way to get a concealed carry, so the box will have to be used for storing other valuables.

I am also using the PAC RP4-CH11 Factory Integration Adapter. The only thing that does not work is uconnect, otherwise full steering wheel control.

Nice! What did you use to do the camera mount? I really want to do the rear camera on my JKUR-X and have some ideas for mounting, but I like yours! I don't want to drill a hole in the bumper to flush mount it, and my other idea would make spare access a bit more difficult.

What I basically did is rigged up three brackets that I got from Lowes. One 90 degree with couple of holes, then a straight one about 9 inches in length, and a small one that holds the camera in place. I put it all together, test fit, and trimmed it to the proper lengths. I did have to drill one hole in the third brake light mount. Then I painted it flat black to make it less conspicuous


On the side not, I never thought that there will be such huge difference in audio quality from factory radio to the Pioneer. It's like night and day, and I have not even changed the speakers, and as of right now do not really see the need for it.
