Oh My Gosh!!!!
First,, i am so glad you have this,,,, I am dying to find one that works for a 2 door,,,

I hope you don't mind, but i have a few quick questions if you wouldn't mind answering them...
I would truly appreciate it.

1) I have a soft top on my Jeep, am looking for something that i can throw over the jeep outside overnights..
Can i use this with the soft top down? Obviously, i don't want to take the top off...
2) it looks like it covers where the flaps cover when there are no doors on,, How does it do?
Does it keep the inside decent?
3) pretty easy to toss on?


Thank you so much for your help.. I am hoping this is what i am looking for...

Thanks again!!

Chris
Sorry for the late reply.
I don't know if this will work with a soft top, it might but don't think it will fit well. Mine is a hard top and I use this for when I have the top and/or doors off. If I recall this is what it is made for, no top at all,

Keep us posted on how you like those switches! I REALLY like the idea and ease of that.
I installed the Trigger Accessory Controller system this afternoon. In my opinion, it's a better alternative to the Mopar Auxiliary Switch kit for the JL. It's RF Wireless and Bluetooth. It works like a charm with the iPhone App (I'll test the Android version as well because I go back-and-forth). The kit was very easy to install. Here is a link to the website: www.triggercontroller.com

Pictures:

1. Overhead mount (the actual switch is held with a magnet and can be handheld like a remote).
2. Switch Hub mounted in the engine compartment (this is very slick).
3. The Trigger Switch is connected to ARB Dual Air Compressor, Rough Country 50" LED light on the hood (shield id partially pulled to the side), and, RIGID 7" LED lights on the front bumper.

I also swapped out the OEM Differential Covers for MOTOBILT version. Much more sturdy.

My decal collection is accumulating at a rapid pace with modifications.

got the suspension dialed in added .75in spacers to the rear with all the weight from 5th and Reinforcement added and incoming rear steel bumper and the front should sag a bit with bumper and winch going on.
no rubbing with the sway bars connected and flex but light in front and heavy rear without

so bumpers and lights up next

Just a heads up... If you are considering the Vector Offroad Highland Platform for the 2DR (https://vectoroffroad.com/collectio...products/jl-2-door-aluminum-highland-platform), be advised that it won't work with a soft top.

Here is an installation video but Keith forgets to mention this:
NOTE: Their website does warn that the platform only works with a hardtop or no top. But, its easy to miss. When I called in to place an order I asked if it works with a soft top and was told it would. So, maybe a miscommunication. I'll blame myself.

Looking at General Grabbers when I replace my stock tires - how do you like yours so far as compared to the stock?

I am trying a set of Mickey Thompson BAJA MTZ P3 tires. First time I've rolled with the brand. At day two I don't think they are as quiet as Milestar Patagonia's. Stay tuned.

I also upgraded my stock Rubicon Coil Springs to a 2" set offered by Rusty's Offroad, and Sway Bar Ed Links from SteerSmarts. These things are 9" and beefy. Between the springs and links, I added another 3". This is a lot less expensive than a typical lift kit.

I am also experimenting with a spare tire solution for my 2DR rear hatch because I prefer the tire delete look and feel the spare tire in the hatch gives me more balance and stability.

Pictures:

  • Mickey Thompson BAJA MTZ P3 Tires;
  • Rusty's Offroad Coil Springs and SteerSmarts Sway Bar Links; and,
  • My prototype for a 2DR rear hatch spare tire mount.

I’ve only had them for a couple of days now, but compared to stock on interstate and paved roads, not a lot of difference which is nice. On dirt and gravel a huge upgrade. These are 10 ply which I need out here in the country. Haven’t gotten into any muddy roads or off-road yet.

Two days with the bigger springs and all is well. Those Falcon 2.0 shocks were meant to go up to 4" lift.

Thanks, great to hear not much difference on paved roads. I still have the stock Goodyear Wrangler ATs, which for a AT tire it does not have a very aggressive tread. I was curious on whether the Grabber's, with their tread, were louder. Sounds like little or no difference.
