One of the best cheap mod that I have done is putting a strip of window tint at the top of the windshield. The first day I hated it. The line between tint and clear windshield was splitting my view out the windshield. It did not take long before I just tilted my head a little for a clear view out the windshield and then if the sun is bright or someone is coming at me with their bright lights on, I can just tilt my head up a little and all the glare is gone.

This is also one of my favorite hacks. This is a net from the trunk of a car. In the picture you can see I hang it from the rear grab handles to the roll bar. It is a perfect catch all for everything as we travel. We throw snacks, jackets, hats, maps, books, just about everything into this net that we want quick access to. It holds a ton of stuff and keeps it from cluttering up the front seat area or have the stuff on the floor in the back seat. Note, I take this out when not Jeep traveling or wheeling.

I’ve thought about removing the rear view mirror. It blocks way too much of my forward vision. Any hack for covering up the hole after removing it?

Speaking of 3d printing, anyone making custom/replacement floor mat badges?

Not a badge but a quality deca that went over the frigging logo..

I put the decal on over 2 yrs ago... 30,000+ miles ago and they still look mint today.

Love this. Where did you get this from, or did you make it?

Regarding the decals for the floor liners....A forum member named Wes made them up for me. (Thanks again, Wes)

Read through this thread and you will see a post where I mention him/how to reach out to him via forum messaging. I'm not sure if he still up to making the stickers but you could ask him. He will undoubtedly do....

Nice stickers, they hold up well and the price for them was very reasonable.

I Used my SpiderWebShade for the freedom panel's of my 2 Door JK to make a storage section above the rear Cargo area to hold mainly chairs and whatever you can think of. It should be noted this only works with the Rhino Rack Backbone plates. The main importance of this for me was to make sure I didn't have any obstruction of view through my rearview window.

Doggone, I see twin Guillotines in a hard stop situation. I store mine flat and strapped to the floor in my 2 door, seat removed.
Is it a remote scenario ? Maybe, but the consequences would be Final
Good point. It would be a really bad idea to store the freedom panels up there. However, I read his post a little differently.

I added two words in all CAPS to explain:

"SpiderWebShade NORMALLY for the freedom panel AREA of my 2 Door JK to make a storage section above the rear Cargo area to hold mainly chairs and whatever you can think of...."

So he's not storing the freedom panels in this area, but other things etc.

Just another interpretation :like:
