Posted this over in camping, but feels in the spirit of this thread: two wood boards mounted to hardtop bolts (M8 x 1.25) so I can pull stacked totes and coolers out without taking everything out. Bonus: soft top clears and folds all the way back still. $5 for bolts

Smart use of the hard top bolt holes.

Since the Pedal Commander is Bluetooth enabled, I keep my PC display hidden directly behind/attached with Velcro, to the center black plastic under the steering column. I change modes with the Pedal Commander app on my smartphone..

I saw this on Etsy the other day and thought... geeez, pretty cool holder... not pricey .. and if I did not have my Pedal Commander stashed like I do, I would try one of these.. NO, I do not know the seller, nor have I seen this offering in person.

Look here.

I ordered the gas cap scraper and the guy messaged me and said "Any ideas why I'm getting so many orders" :) I told him to talk to @Rhinebeck01 on here :) Can't wait to get mine. We had an early snow here in Utah. I didn't need to scrape but I want to be ready!

Funny....

...and.... you are really going to like the holder and the Skóda scraper. I'm very confident of that!

Please do come back and post what you think of it.... so guys/gals here, understand why I posted about the offering. No, the Polish guy seller, is not my relative in Poland... 8-)

I'm very sure, you will positively rant about it.............. and mention as I did.... how the heck is the seller, selling a very decent, 3D print offering for the JL, that takes 1 hr. 20 min to print on his home 3D printer, then he place's quality, 3M vehicle tape on it... plus, includes a highly regarded Skóda scraper... and then ships it all the way from Poland, to a buyer anywhere, for $19.53.

First time I heard of pedal commander. Smells like snake oil. How is it?

Throttle controllers are proven tech that adjust the accelerator signal based on user preference (i.e., the selected sensitivity available in the programming).

While not inexpensive enough to qualify as cheap, or even as a "hack", they are popular with those folks, not just Jeep owners, who want a workaround for laggy throttle response, etc.

So I got and installed the scaper today. I can attest that it is really high quality and I love that is always there and not taking up extra room. I'm with @Rhinebeck01 that I can't believe he can sell these shipped for that price. I usually carry a regular scraper in the Jeep but it's nice to have a spare always on me. One thing to watch out for I installed backwards at first and had to pull it back out and put new tape on it and reinstall. I don't know how I did that but it is what it is.

Here's a pic:

ah it’s just adjusting throttle signal. That makes sense. I thought it was writing different fuel maps or doing some kind of turbo tune.

YES, Indeed a terrific offering and how the heck is he selling it at that low low price..

I stopped by the local Jeep dealership to talk to sales about a JT for my one Son... I showed the Guys/staff there I know the holder with scraper and they all thought it was great... and commented on how where the holder resided was really terrific..

Geeeez, you must have played hell getting that holder off , once you applied it with the 3M tape. I thought it might take an act of God to get the holder loose from that location after it was attached.

Glad you like the holder and Skoda scraper. I can't imagine anyone buying and installing and then not saying that the offering was slick as chitt.

I was only able to peel it back off because I had touched it to the Jeep but not pressed down on the tape too hard yet. I think it would break before you could peel it off once it's pressed on there good.

@Medsker

The 3D printed mount seems very stout and durable.. a quality piece it is... but yup, you would probably destroy it, if you had pressed firmly on the 3D tape and let it sit for a bit.. and then tried to pry it off. That 3M vehicle tape really grabs..

Not sure if you noticed, but that offering has risen in price... it is about 30-40 cents more then it was.

The seller did not raise his price... The US $ cost of the offering on Etsy went up because of fluctuations in the EURO in Europe. The price is adjusted automatically by Etsy and not by the seller..

Even at $19.79 though, the offering is still a bargain... I'm going to be ordering 3 more and will be gifting them as an early Xmas gift..
