Installed Brawlee rear glass lift gate dome light. Near how it's curved to match rear glass perfectly. Not sure if wiring it to dome circuit or continuous circuit would be better.

Do you recommend them? Also, got a link for that flashlight mount? It looks great!
Here's the link for the flashlight. I would recommend the quick release screws. Don't have to take out the tools to unscrew it and I can hang grocery bags from them. They so sell a cover attachment but I didn't get it.

Realigned the tailgate and replaced the stock stabilizer with RC N3.

...removed Teraflex rear trackbar relocation bracket.
rustyshakelford informed me bracket's purpose is to allow lifted vehicles to use factory trackbar. Since I'm using an adjustable trackbar the bracket isn't needed. I was thinking the bracket's purpose was to make trackbar more horizontal
While it's true that trackbar brackets allow you to retain the OEM trackbar, it's also true they make the trackbar be more parallel to the ground, reducing body roll.

@jedisrus I’m not a huge fan of the back and how everything fits together. The bottom tabs on the back window do not stay up under the lip. I love riding around with just the back window out (yes, I’m aware it’s not recommend for exhaust fumes ect), but I’m hesitant to do so. It’s not convenient to put things in the back cargo area. Having to undo both sides, then flip the thing up isn’t as easy as zipping the zippers to the corners on either side. I was not overly impressed with the instructions and the ease of the install. I used to always remove the black plastic trim on my older TJs and JKs because I liked the “plainer” look. I am just going to have to get used to seeing the “hardware” when the top is down.

There are some positives... I do like the “safari” option this top offers. The fact you don’t need to undo the sun visors to latch or unlatch the front is convenient. You can flip the top back in about 2 seconds. I also understand the JL was designed for the average consumer, which I am not. I’m sure most guys and gals love the functionality.

Some people would die to have the problems we have. All first world problems, I know.
Reading this makes me glad I went with the hard top only. I had to get a hoist in my garage and it takes a little effort to go topless but I think it's worth the effort. It's super easy to lift up the glass window and put stuff in the back.

I installed the Metalcloak steering stabilizer relocation bracket and their FAD skid plate. It's no doubt a beefy system but I seemed to have a hell of a time getting it installed. And now, my steering wheel is off to the left a bit?!?!?! I have no idea why or how that would get screwed up if I didn't adjust anything.....

Applied 3M anti-squeak tape to rear tailgate. Virtually invisible. No more constant annoying squeaking coming from the rear hatch (that drove me nuts). Not that one expects a Jeep to be "quiet"... the constant and never-ending squeaking could only be drowned out by the radio (or driving faster than 65). Quite possibly the most sanity saving upgrade I've done.

Picture below with tape applied. Nearly invisible though you can see a few of the air bubbles that should fade with time. Since you won't see it when the tailgate is closed I don't really care.
