5. Turn ignition to "OFF".

AFTER step 5 you should hear a chime to indicate it has worked. To turn the seatbelt chime back on, repeat the process.
Like a BOSS I'm about go do it right now, thank YOU!!

I found some old school renegade decals on ebay and thought about using them.

I've also thought of getting a black full hood decal, like a black eagle or maybe some jagged lines or a black lightning bolt but maybe do that later on.

I think we are of the same mind. I should have one that looks very similar, but a premium soft top instead of the hard, by the end of the month.

From the MSRP, I'd guess similar equipment too. 6-speed manual, manual locks and windows?

The deal you got is similar to mine, too. That is reassuring, I hate haggling.

But I have them off more than on so the stray shower is keeping my carpets out for now. I may get the bedtread like NOGA at some point, but that will probably be next year if at all.
We had a very heavy rainstorm Saturday night, and I had about a tablespoons of water on the mat.

dawhitesJKU I just installed my hothead headliners. It's been 90's-100's lately here in SoCal and my last wheeling trip was more than fun. Passengers were complaining of the heat inside the cabin. It should've came with the jeep in the first place. Anyways, I didn't take pics of my jeep since it's not awe-inspiring, but the driving experience Improved Drastically!! Sound system improved, ca in noise decrease, and the heat that radiates from the hardtop?!?!? What heat?!!

20% off Labor Day.

As for the Sirius outage. There were other types of outages that day too so must have been some satellite problems. It's been fine since then.
A friend has a 2012 Unlimited with a soft top and it leaks, and I just told him to buy that Shin Etsu grease after reading your post. I found it on amazon and it has stellar reviews. I also said he may need new seals.

Yeah so don't touch my Willie,

Keep your hands off my Willie,
We'll get along just fine

That's funny. I figure if you just let your Jeep get dirty, you won't see the scratches. Problem solved.
