If it loosens I may throw a star washer between the ball and pipe nipple mount.

Now to try which app suits me best and a bit of a drive tomorrow. I'll try it off the receiver and tethered to my phone to see how it does.
May I suggest to check out view ranger.
Not that user friendly but once you get used to it and set it up it has a done of cool features and lots of topo maps that can be used online or save a map area for offline use. It costs money for the maps but I think it's $20 for usa. It was $5 for all of canada and I have found it to be just awesome.

I was able to create a potential trail with Google earth and other satellite images. It was close to the real thing and helped us navigate a trail that we had never been on. It was very cool.

Thanks ! No it just attaches to the roll bars using supplied bungee cords. It's real easy to install.

Sorry but that's the instructions for the jeep to tow. I need the instructions for the harness for a RV to tow the jeep.

Paul_G Got OBA mostly installed today. Compressor is mounted behind the right taillight. All the airlines are run. I am bleeding down a little, so I'll tackled that in the next few days. I still have to make a mount for a removeable 7 gal aux tank and finish up a few things to wrap it up. It's switched to shut off at 145 and a relief valve at 150. I have a disconnect on the front bumper, and two inside...one for air and one for aux tank.

Only thing that didn't go my way was the manifold being mounted behind the taillight. It ended up in the cab on the outside of the right rear corner roll bar. I'll make a mount and guard for it next time I take the top off.

Get this done and next project is in cab winch controls, relocate solenoids, re-grease gears, free pool/engage lever and paint the winch.

Hoorah for heated garages.

I've had my sill protectors on for a year and a half and haven't had even a hint of a leak.

Hmm I wasn't aware of the leak issue. The driver door has always been hard to close. I didn't notice a change after installing them. Every other door takes a normal amount of Jeep effort to close. I will have to watch for leaks. Thanks for the heads up.

Only landscape though but I can flip it down to hide it while not in use. Not totally decided if I will keep it that way. I also received a smittybuilt hitch I haven't installed yet. Just starting this journey with my Jeep, but I'm really excited.

I really like this one, May have to get one myself.

On another note, upgraded to 35" duratracs, swapped Sahara fenders for black fenders, trimmed pinch seam, removed Sahara stickers, applied WF stickers in their place.
Ordered JCR spindle for my upcoming tire carrier project, ordered synergy axel sleeves, c gussets, and some other goodies. Trimming fenders tomorrow. It's been a good day tator.
