What do you mean by backing up? My rear cam? It is a Jensen cam and alpine head unit. And iPhone? I have a Samsung note II, no special cable required. I don't connect my phone to my head unit. I have a usb with all my music. It takes like 15 seconds to read the usb at start up which is a little annoying but other than that it's a great head unit.

It was very easy. The panels only fit one way and everything lined up for me. Install the bolts loosely and only tighten them after you have the whole enclosure together.

So far it's been perfect. I got a basic X model, even installed OEM cruise control myself. Just treat it like any other vehicle. Look under it and make sure there's no leaks etc. When this motor go's, i'm installing a hemi. Good luck with joining the family.

Remember to wave.
Thx I'll be going to inspect it at my Buddies shop after work tomorrow.

4wheelparts.com. Now the shippers may have rewrapped and stacked them on the pallet, because when I took the black wrapping off.. They were individually wrapped and each secured to the pallet.

GEAUXJEEPING Thanks. I have to get pics of my Trek armor seat covers, the Aries rear security deck and the Teraflex big rotor kit, I've installed. Oh and all this weight has made the lift squat a bit so some 2" pucks for all four corners are in order.

MassMopar Great job on the rig, love the mods so far and Rescue Green is an awesome color!!
08-29-2013 04:01 PM
GEAUXJEEPING I did remove the metal bracket at the rear of the dash. Very simple and plenty of room for a dremel or hack saw. I also moved the grommet that sticks down from the top of the dash. I have an amp and rear camera installed so lots of extra wires. I use the usb port exclusively, so if you will be the same I would recommend getting the 770 model that moves the CD slot behind the screen. More touch screen real estate. I love the head unit and it sounds awesome with doors off and top down. It also is bright even in direct sunlight.
08-29-2013 01:42 PM
Bengie614 First off i have to say your rig looks fantastic!

i have been looking at the same Kenwood head unit (DDX470) you have listed. Crutchfield shows that unit as "Modified fit" did you run into any issues getting it installed?
07-21-2013 11:21 PM
GEAUXJEEPING Here's pics of my current look. Winch still needs to be rewound and hook installed. Seats will get headrests installed next month after covers stretch and settle. Finally the dual battery tray and A-pillar switch pod installed easily.

Cancelled my Tuffy deck and ordered the Aries rear enclosure. Tuffy just was taking way too long so Aries gets my business.

Now my wife is trying to convince me to do the Hemi conversion..... Lol

I'm going to go back and review your choices for lift, tires, and wheels. Can I ask how the ride is during normal city highway driving and how has your gas mileage changed?

The ride is better than stock. I have driven about 4000 miles in the last 2 months commuting between Pensacola and Biloxi. Stops fine, cruises normal and handles better than u thought a lifted jeep could. Last week a big rig lost a tire in front of me. I did an evasive maneuver and the jeep did exactly what I asked it to do. I had been fearing how it would react. Now, it's a dog merging into traffic. I have 3.23 gears and it's getting old. I will do 4.10s and lockers next March. Gas mileage sucks. I'm guessing 15mpg but love the jeep to much to do the math. My beautiful wife doesn't care because it's paid for... Her logic is with no car payment we can afford the extra gas..... Yes dear. Anyway, yes it's affected my gas mileage but it wasn't stellar to begin with. I just can't wait until I'm done commuting in September.

I'm looking at the xdc fenders or a fee of the tube styles.

Lol should I get pocket bushwackers or flats? Plastic or metal?

Metal. My last 2 trips out 2 different people had new bushwhacker flats and bent them bumping trees on the trail. One almost ripped his front totally off. The other was a jku with a tight turn and just bumped a small tree and it bent the flare up.
