Installed a backup camera..

don't have the camera wired up yet - just the harness in to the back of the radio - and then yesterday had the Jeep reflashed with the new sales code for rear view camera - now at least when I put it in reverse the radio does this!
so it appears that its going to work - might rig up a quick 12v source to make sure the camera works before I go drilling holes and routing wires though
also in the works - door storage cart

|Jrod9707||I've been following your thread for a little while now and figured I would chime in as thats one of the main reasons Ill be getting my Jeep with the 430. I just added one to my 06 Accord(integrated it with the OEM Nav screen) and its nice having one, but the camera replaces the license plate light(one light above each side of plate) and is recessed a little which gives you a good view going backwards but unlike my wifes CX5 it doesn't give you a wide view so you can see cars coming from the left or right side. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.|

|StarBrite||Aha! Do I predict a backup camera in someone's future?|

|Argent||Soon hopefully I'll be able to see behind me!|

Question...Are you using Google Photos to post your pictures? I've started doing that instead of a Photobucket account since I use Google for pretty much everything.

since no one reads this anymore - I'll just keep updating it for my records :P
Started preliminary work on my next mod that I'm hoping to finish up this weekend...
and since I had the dash apart - I decided to re-route the USB cable for my phone cradle down the center console as well....
makes for a nicer cleaner look now (cable is routed down the center dash and up in to the armrest where its plugged in to the power point in there - 90% completely hidden now)

In front of my friends parents house this weekend

I will certainly be driving more doorless at least this summer - I don't mind leaving the back hardtop on - I don't ride back there so I'm not missing out on the open air bit....
but I do need to get some better hinge bushings - had to use a 2x4 and a floor jack to get the rears to break free :/

I love my soft top. Can't wait to throw the SpiderWebShade in there and finally figure out the Sunrider mode.
I bet that bikini would see lots of use!
|06-09-2014 08:25 AM|
I'm trying! even tossed his seat in the back in the middle and took him and his parents for a ride around the block (they'd never been for a ride in a doorless Jeep)
really starting to think about a Cable-Style Safari Bikini Top and a tonneau cover for the summer...

|StarBrite||Start 'em young!|

Went and visited my best friend and his family and his son loved the Jeep with no doors on it
Told him as soon as he could reach the pedals he could drive Uncle Paul's Jeep! haha
|06-06-2014 02:55 PM|
Also did the cheap tweeter mod...
|06-05-2014 07:07 PM|
|Argent||Took all my doors off tonight....|
|05-31-2014 08:57 PM|
Yeah wow its like that piece of metal didn't land in the press squarely or something - the offest hole shouldn't effect the hood lock access - but still I guess wait and see what the guy from China has to say....
I had to do a lot of pushing as well - but that was because the grille wouldn't go back towards the radiator enough to get the pins in....not because they were misaligned...
Sorry about your luck hope they make good on getting you fixed right
|05-31-2014 04:21 PM|
After a bit of pushing, pulling, and swearing, I got it on. I might have broke two of my mounting pins, but they're in, and secure.
The lock hole cover is slightly to the left of where it should be. Noticeable? I don't have a hood lock (that was part of my motivation to buy it), and I'm not sure if one will fit if it is off center.
Your finished product, nice and centered:
I've attached mine. I contacted the seller (hope you don't mind that I used your pic where the top mounts match), so we'll see what happens.

Hey no problem - hope you can figure out how to make it work...
today's project was a bit easier...
removal of the mineral grey insert from the rear finally.....
and because it was such a beautiful day (and I was working on the Jeep) I decided to try my luck at getting naked....sadly this was the best I could do by myself...
the back doors didn't want to cooperate - but until I get some replacement side view mirrors anyway - I only drove it around the sub to see what it was like.....
It is a Jeep thing....and I do understand
|05-31-2014 08:58 AM|
I did take off one of the brackets on the line for the sensor, so I do have some room. I'll see if there might be a better relocation spot.
Had to stop by the office, hope to tackle it a little later. The light in my garage is horrible, and I didn't want to try it last night.
Thanks for the response!
