After reading reviews of hanging doors on the ceiling or walls, I have read that it will warp the rubber molding on the doors. With this cart I can wheel it around and all the pressure is on the hinges.

Dusthol I finally had a day to myself. Soo I washed the jeep. Then decided to remove the hardtop and install my off road heros soft top. Pain in the butt in 20 mph winds. But I like it.

No more rattles over bumps or washboard dirt roads!!!!!!!!

See photos.
What issue did u solve?

Can you take a picture from further back so we can see the whole Jeep? I think I may like these.

Do you have the link for the camera that you bought?

2013 JKR- Brake pedal rattle - Solved!

That didn't work with my iPhone, but works perfect with the new Nokia. It will also ask if I want to have my texts read and I can speak and respond all through voice.

Keep in mind though that this has nothing to do with UConnect or the phone hardware. It's all controlled by the phone software.

This isn't unique to Jeep. I've never been able to get that functionality from my 2012 Durango either. This is all due to the way Apple allows Bluetooth connectivity and is not related to the Uconnect system itself.

JK_Jeff A little off roading. Hopefully going to lift it soon.

Geo Toad Installed the Mopar hood lock this morning. It took about 10 minutes to install with the included rivets. Thankfully the Jeep hasn't been broken into, but I should have bought a hood lock when I purchased the Jeep last Fall.

Runner750 Finally got to install my Spiderweb shade. Getting under the hardtop was the hardest part. Once I took the bolts out of the top and raised it up a little it was simple. Sure helps with the hot sun.

Very interesting that they don't fast track their testing so not to inconvience their customers. Just a little discouraging when you spend so much $$$ on something to discover it doesn't work very well. Future Plan: once connected, don't upgrade iOS software for 6 months or so! Thanks uconnect for not getting me connected! Anyway, I didn't buy the Rubicon for its ability to work with apple. This is my second jeep and I absolutely love the upgrades since 1997!
I have a 2013 Uconnect and I have the latest iPhone version (7.1) and have no issues....
