That price sounds about right. I added extra sensors and functions. I tested mine from Singapore and Australia. It started every time and I could monitor it if my wife drove it anywhere. I really liked it. It’s expensive but you’ll appreciate it once you get used to it. I would maybe look at...
That is the one I had. The app functionality is similar to the Uconnect except it works. You can start, stop and track it. It alerts you if the alarm goes off. You will still need to fob present in the Jeep to start it.
I used the Viper system with the app for remote starting. The fob can be used but isn't necessary. It worked very well and can be upgraded to your liking with various sensors. Out of curiosity, I asked the installer if it can be used for manuals and he said yes and there is a way to do it so it...
Most of the sunshade vendors sell a silencer. You can also go to Walmart or other retailers and get the seat belt cushions that velcro on and put them where the straps flap. It worked well for mine. The rear passenger flaps on the 2 and 4 door models tend to flap as well.
I have one in on my JL in Houston. It's really hot with high humidity. I haven't had any issues cooling with the AC. I usually use remote start a few minutes before if it's been in the sun. No leaks yet either.
I saw a video (and cannot find it again anywhere but I swear I watched it) of a guy who takes his off just like a hard top. I would be too afraid to do it as I may not get it aligned properly causing leaks. He also said there were 20 bolts so it was a little more time consuming.
I read a fairly long thread about sudden temperature changes. If you were at the beach all day with the sun heating the glass then started the AC with a vent blowing on the window, maybe the sudden temperature change could have caused this.
I have one and it's great. No leaks or noises. The road noise isn't any louder than other JK's I've had with a hard top or soft top. It's so convenient to push a button to open the top. I also used to get out on the trails and mud in mine but don't anymore so it was a good choice for me.
