fegan Satellite Radio question...was yours activated by the dealership before delivery or were you given a code to active it yourself?

Why...because I can't remember the last time I listened to the radio in my car since I have an iPod with plenty of music. I found out today after the 1st year free it's about $15/month to continue the satellite radio service and I figured if I got the code I could make somebody a great deal on a year of satellite radio rather than wasting it on myself.

Thanks!

WillysGal [QUOTE="kdq;10017393"] I got one also, good tip about wrapping with tape. I can't wait to install on my rubi, when I finally get it![/QUOTE

My hubby put mine on today. Wrench to get the factory antenna off and hand tightened the stubby as far as he could then just used a shop
Rag under the pliers. Looks great. Hopefully it will work fine but I will use the sat radio mostly anyway.

Wow! That was fast. Congrats on your new Jeep!!

I have a pioneer avh 8500 or something. I didn't notice the constant fluctuations too much in Boston but have been getting it after a trip and then after returning home it was still doing it. May need to switch to the 24" if tightening it doesn't work.

FYI it did take about a week from the date my dealer placed order until when I received he first email from the VOTS that the order was even placed. Then a couple weeks until it was production scheduled. That really doesn't mean anything except they have the parts ready. It can take weeks from production scheduled to actually make it into production, at least from what I've read on here. Maybe I got luckily on the shipping time too. Dealer is just off I-65.

Jku sport, manual transmission, black

tnjeeper83 It was really fast, still hard to believe. It will be real when I see it.

I'm 500 miles from Toledo so not close to the factory at all.

My model was a black jku sport. Options were 3.73 gears, manual trannny, side air bags, alpine stereo.

I'm thinking it likely went to production earlier than when I receive the email. Supposedly the factory was shut down for Easter and Good Friday. I highly doubt it was manufactured and checked on a Thursday, then shipped, and at the dealer by 1400 local time Saturday.

Thanks, Maxx. That would definitely be a grr moment to screw up the easiest mod!
