Thanks!Great looking Jeep there man.
Question for ya: I just pulled the trigger on the Pio 8200NEX and I am going to copy your phone mount strategy. It looks like you ran the USB from the HU to the cigarette lighter replacement and then up to the phone mount. So the question is, would you consider or recommend running it directly from the HU to the phone mount. I am having mine installed this Monday and need to give them my preferences.
From what I see from Proclip you can order a direct wire or charge via the cigarette lighter but the latter doesn't have a direct connection to the HU.
Two updates this week...
1. The brake light. Been having a problem. It's now flashing rapidly when the brakes are applied and 3 of the LEDs are not working at all. I talked to the ebay seller and he says that he's seen some jeeps with this problem, it's a voltage spike. The solution is a converter. I did have to pay $15 for it including shipping, but he also sent me 10 new LEDs as well. Will report back on whether or not this fixes the problem.
As mentioned above by @ssinga, it is a lot of brake light which I like. If you are following me, you can't miss the fact that I stepped on the brakes. So hopefully this is an easy fix.
2. I got the M.O.R.E Dead Pedal... and love it! I thought it was weird that there was no flat area to rest your foot in the Jeep. Other than being weird, it didn't bother me... until I started taking longer trips, like an hour or more. Then I was getting pain in my ankle from my foot sitting at an odd angle. I installed the dead pedal and it's so good that I actually completely forget about it. It's so natural feeling. I highly recommend this inexpensive mod.

A few minor updates from the past few weeks.
Got a cargo net for the cargo area to help keep random items from rolling around like my bike helmet.
It's a cheapie from Amazon.
The upper d-rings are from GPCA.
And then I finally had the front windows tinted to the max legal % here in Houston.
Still not quite as dark as the rears, but much closer.
A little hard to tell here with the reflections. I'll get a better pic another time.
I'll have a much more exciting update later this week.
