Very nice Paul! I'm envious, the doors don't come off much here with my husband having to drive it to work. (It has to be all buttoned up to keep the ash out where they park.) Maybe next month when he gets a week off we'll get a chance to try it out without them.

We took the hard top off early last month and have been loving the ease of the soft top, and Mr. Melmichigan has gotten really good at handing over the keys when he gets home. I'm getting really quick at flipping back the SunRider and taking out the windows for my nightly drive. Everything is better when your driving a Jeep!

55*?!? I'll stick with my 95* in the shade for now. Colorado was cold enough to remind me I hate cold. LOL

Cart looks awesome, Paul! Congratulations!

Argent Installed a backup camera..


camera isn't flush in this shot because I was still adjusting it to make the parking lines level

Argent my Dad (retired mechanical engineer) was put on the job - he's been in 7th heaven working on building it..

Do you know which one you are gonna go with yet? I've seen a few out there and am thinking about making one. However, I don't think I'll have the doors off often so right now I just put them on a couple pool noodles and lean them against the wall.

Argent don't have the camera wired up yet - just the harness in to the back of the radio - and then yesterday had the Jeep reflashed with the new sales code for rear view camera - now at least when I put it in reverse the radio does this!



so it appears that its going to work - might rig up a quick 12v source to make sure the camera works before I go drilling holes and routing wires though

also in the works - door storage cart

Jrod9707 I've been following your thread for a little while now and figured I would chime in as thats one of the main reasons Ill be getting my Jeep with the 430. I just added one to my 06 Accord(integrated it with the OEM Nav screen) and its nice having one, but the camera replaces the license plate light(one light above each side of plate) and is recessed a little which gives you a good view going backwards but unlike my wifes CX5 it doesn't give you a wide view so you can see cars coming from the left or right side. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
07-11-2014 12:21 AM
StarBrite Aha! Do I predict a backup camera in someone's future?
07-10-2014 01:51 PM
Argent Soon hopefully I'll be able to see behind me!

victor1955 I'm still subscribed as well!! I'm just not on the forum as much during the summer as I am in the winter.

Sorry about all the questions!

Well, I was going to unsubscribe but now that you just posted I won't. At least not for a couple more days.

Argent In front of my friends parents house this weekend

Argent I will certainly be driving more doorless at least this summer - I don't mind leaving the back hardtop on - I don't ride back there so I'm not missing out on the open air bit....

but I do need to get some better hinge bushings - had to use a 2x4 and a floor jack to get the rears to break free :/

StarBrite I love my soft top. Can't wait to throw the SpiderWebShade in there and finally figure out the Sunrider mode.

I bet that bikini would see lots of use!
06-09-2014 08:25 AM
Argent I'm trying! even tossed his seat in the back in the middle and took him and his parents for a ride around the block (they'd never been for a ride in a doorless Jeep)

really starting to think about a Cable-Style Safari Bikini Top and a tonneau cover for the summer...

StarBrite Start 'em young!

Argent Went and visited my best friend and his family and his son loved the Jeep with no doors on it



Told him as soon as he could reach the pedals he could drive Uncle Paul's Jeep! haha

Argent Also did the cheap tweeter mod...
