I purchased a new a JL last night — 2021 Sahara UL. In the storage cubby in the back was a plastic bag with the tool kit, a strangely shaped rubber mat, a “splice kit” (that’s what’s written on the baggy) consisting of 8 small plastic tubes and 2 galvanized screws. See photo (tool kit for scale). Any idea what the screws, rubber mat and splice kit are for?

rubber mat is for your storage area in rear, the jeep bag contains a knuckle buster torx for removing your doors.

the splice kit looks like little pieces of heat shrink for your aux accessory pack.

Those eight digit codes followed by AA AD etc, are part numbers.

Thanks, that’s helpful. I don’t know why I didn’t realize the mat fit the storage area. Feel kind of dumb now.

Any idea about the two galvanized screws?

2 screws: front license plate (not all states require them so yours may not have front bracket), at least that is what dealer told me when I picked up my new Rubicon today. I live in Arkansas (no front plate), but bought from a dealer in Missouri (does have front plate).

Thanks. That looks right.

The toolkit also removes the torx screws holding the hardtop to the rear gunnels.

And, the tub underneath the cargo floor has two sets of holes: they are to store the torx screws when you remove the hardtop.

Jeep hack: put a flat magnet under your door hinges while removing the torque screws so you're less likely to scratch your paint.

The door and fender are aluminium.

The hood is aluminum, too. At least the Sahara hood is. And the tailgate is made of some magnesium alloy.
