i originally picked up this..
soft mount antenna
i removed the existing antenna fakra connection from the back of the radio and installed the one from the kit into the radio and placed the external antenna on the dash. i didn't use the splitter and gps connection and lost the nav in the...
I considered a dual battery for a bit then decided it was a bit over complicated for what I need. I went with a 40ah battery in a power box that charges with a west mountain radio epic power gate which works as a lifepo4 charger, a mppt solar controller and a power switch which will run my...
so i relocated the xm antenna to on the dash with the above antenna (right side of pic) and the reception still sucks (i have an ikamper skycamp on a gobi rack) and i also lost the gps, so i assume the gps and xm antennas are in one unit above the sound bar.
i guess next go around i'll use the...
I mounted mine under the passenger seat. Put a 4"x4" piece of plywood under the carpet and screwed the bracket thru the carpet to that. Also a rj45 extension cable will get decent slack on your mic line to run it to the cooltech mount from between the center console and passenger seat. Under the...
i have a smittybilt x20 on the warn plate, worked fine.
go thru some of the winch install threads tho, i think with the warn plate you need to set a couple of rivnuts into the frame (but only on certain JL models)

the back of the 12v port has a clip where you can remove the wiring harness to it. the grey and white ends connect to those. so youre basically splicing inline this connector to the back of the 12v port and the harness that goes into it.
so the first end i mentioned has 2 connectors, a male and...
one end harnesses the 12v lighter plug, the other end (with the fuse) is the power to the light bar
i was able to just push the connector thru, maybe a little jiggling, but it wasn't a hassle.
i used one of these taps from amazon when i did mine. plug and play, didn't need to cut or splice into and OE wires.
i'm looking at relocating my xm antenna. rather than pull the old one and wire off of the sound bar i was just going to use this..
... and plug it into the back of the head unit and put the antenna on the dash. does the GPS unit also have to be relocated or can i just not use that part, will i...
little bit of touch up and clear coat, so they're pretty much done. my wife wasn't amused when i told her the scared face was for when she was driving.
guy at agway said he'd have no problem filling up the tank, so i guess it depends on where ya fill up.
