Gutter Mesh in the grill, Truck Bed Liner-ed the inserts first.
Painted the muffler and exhaust tip black.
this was stupid easy, took 20 minutes. Wiped the muffler down with de-greaser and then paint thinner, then painted it with engine paint.
And my favorite.
Installed buttons for my garage door opener in the windshield horizontal trim piece.
I used a multi-meter to figure out which points on the circuit board were the contacts for the buttons on my opener and wired those to the 2 switches for my 2 garage doors.
I hardwired the opener's batter circuit to the cigarette lighter circuit using a 5V - voltage reducer from Radio Shack since the opener used 2 3 Volt batters = 6 volts, (better under powered than over powered, and radio shack didn't have anything in between 5 and 12v).
Also since this is on my radio circuit, if i have the top off and its in the driveway no one can get in to my garage without the key being turned on.
*hard to tell from the angle of the picture but the buttons line up with the jeep grille logo on the windshield.
So, 4,500 miles since I drove it off the lot, in September.

I bought a 2017 JK back at...

My inaugural purchase are the Trek Armor / Bartact seat covers. These were tricky for me as I ordered the supplemental air bag system, and these have not been released yet. Spoke to Sal @ TA and he got me...

Here is our '16 JKU Rubicon Hard Rock in Hydro Blue, that we bought used with 19,9xx miles on April 20, 2019. We currently have a 1992 YJ Islander in blue, so we wanted to keep with the blue theme. First order of business was removing the goofy aftermarket grille and replacing it with the...
