flyfish29 Got her seals checked. Yup. She's got a few leaks. New seals on the way. I've had three wrangler dual tops and no leaks until this one! Sigh. I guess I should consider myself lucky huh.

Sure here is the link:
Amazon.com: Combi-Cam 7850R-S-Black Small 5/8" Combinated Cabinet Lock: Automotive

The lock takes maybe 5-10 minutes to switch out. I did not use one of the three cams that came with the combination lock. I just took the straight cam off of the original and it works perfectly.

FYI - I had no problem getting the drawer open and getting my gun in hand within 3-5 seconds, while driving! I did not even have to take my eyes off the road or my foot off the gas.

I must admit that the tapered face on the lock could make it difficult to pull the drawer out if your hand is sweaty. However, I plan to resolve this by roughing up the face of the lock a little.

Actually drilled rotors don't really do much :-/ mostly for show (and for manufacturers to get more money out of you) If you really want performance gains you want slotted.

This is a huge problem for me since I carry my handgun in the lock box. The other benefit is now I can have the box closed and unlocked at the same time. With the original lock you could not close the box and keep the drawer from sliding out with it unlocked.

To cap off this topic....I can personally (from experience) tell everyone that if you ever need to access your firearm from within a vehicle it must be at your side or on your ankle. I wear both most of the time. If I wasn't able to carry everywhere then my method of vehicle carry would be the holster attached under the sterring wheel. I currently dont have a tuffy, however The tuffy seems to be cool for transport and storage but I wouldn't trust it to be able to open the box and get down range in a matter of seconds. And when I say seconds I mean 3-5 not 15-30. I Just wanted to share personal experience that I truly pray no one has to ever encounter. Back on topic.. Plastidipped the grill. Didnt like how it came out so ill let it dry and go over it again this weekend.

I had to put some rubber pads on the latches that attach to the roll bar due to a slight rattle when it was loaded down with stuff. However, it is a very secure and sturdy rack. Very happy with it.

Thanks
Mine is a 2013. I would think it would fit the 2014 since it basically bolts into the rear seat bolt holes, but not 100% sure.

Love the look.

Discount Tire store really gave great service and unbelievable price.

Was concerned about the size and weight of the spare tire. I will probably get a "Rock Crawler Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier" once I can afford it.
The spare fits snug and actually rest on the bumper indent (which seems to be supporting the weight).

I few other mods although not all today:

Rugged Ridge Hood Latches
Rampage Rear storage rack
Trek Armor Seat covers
Rear tailgate rack (from ebay)
Quadratex Rear Cargo Liner
Fire Extinguisher
Smittybilt First Aid kit

I have some Smittybilt SRC side rails but ran into the "bracket problem" preventing the install. Need to do some grinding to get them to fit.

Thanks to everyone that posts info and suggestions on this forum. I did a lot of research and the info your guys provided was extremely helpful !

Ready for Jeep Beach this weekend!!

yeti2ride Crushed my tailpipe a while back. Rather than just replacing it. I went for an upgrade! Had a new Flowmaster installed plus custom exhaust pipe. The guys even painted it black. It almost completely disappeared under the back and sounds great!

Don't worry guys, I will get some pics up when I pick it up. We actually fly out on the 29th and will be back on May 6th. Unfortunately the shop will be closed when we return but from the 7th onward be on the lookout.

I'll be out of the country next Tuesday but today was the only day that I could drop it off. When I come back I may not even recognize my Jeep. OH and Superchips to make it all work nicely together.

Factory rotors are normally thin and crap so they do wear out. Replacing pads before they eat into the rotor will help. I buy my performance brakes for my 335 from rotor pros. I'm saying that high performance brakes on a jeep is a waste of money. Buy the best ceramic pads and you'll be happy. If you find you need rotors I would buy a decent but cost effective set from Napa or rotor pros. Do the work yourself and put the labor savings into a mod.
