Finished all of the wiring and install of the @CoolTech Towing Harness Kit. Nice easy, clean install. So if you want to tow your Jeep behind of an RV, here is a great solution!!!

I decided to tuck the 6 pin socket behind my Poison Spyder bumper to keep it safe and hidden from rocks and obstacles. Just need to run the connection cable through the skid plate holes and plug it in. Flip the switch, good to go!!!

That's on my list. The glare off the white is something I am not enjoying.
The glare on my Mojito was blinding too, definitely recommend blackout of some kind!

I can let you know tomorrow after my ride into work how things go. Driving earlier with 2PM sun it was noticeably less glare. My morning drive is 90% directly into the sun so hopefully this will change that.

I went with the Quadratec because it didn't require mass disassembly of hood items. Lots of baby shampoo and water squirts and a few restarts after going 1/2 way.

edit: also, I had to wait ~1 month for this as it was out of stock for some time. Maybe back in, may have a wait

I did that same install a while back and had to rewire the 6 pin socket to match my RV. My lights were all screwed up. I found some 6 pin diagrams online and got it all fixed up. The little letters on the backside of the 6 pin that are supposed to tell you where the wires go just doesn't work. YMMV

Rolled up the top on my new Suntop tonight. Couldn’t be happier with this top.

Looks great! Just ordered the ultimate top for my Jeep this afternoon. Can't wait to get it installed.

Day 34

In an earlier mod I wanted to use my wireless charger with my ProClip mount but phone wouldn't stay on it. Doesn't surprise me. I have a Note 8. So I decided to move this charger to a horizontal location. Best idea I could come up with was to make a wooden piece that would sit on top of dash and hook charger to it. This worked. Well today I installed my other larger ProClip mount. I had no idea it had a horizontal mounting pad on it. I figured iPads, etc would mount to the vertical plastic. Anyway this was perfect to put the charger on. Looks better.

I have Metalcloak 3.5" game changer lift with 38" tires, all 4 pucks on front and 2 on rear. I flexed the JL using 21" tall ramps I made. The front tires were barely touching fenders. SteerSmarts top mounted draglink touched the rubber cooling line but missed frame by 1/8". Rear tires were heavily pressing against fenders. I went from 2 pucks on rear to 4 pucks. Rear tires still rubbing. Rubber bump stops look awfully squashed. Rear tires were also heavily pressed against pinch seam.

So 2 things perplex me...

1. If I have all 4 pucks installed why would I have any rubbing. Are my tires too big? I figured people were running 40s with this lift. Not too many lifts taller. View attachment 185631

2. If the top mounted draglink is a bad idea because it limits up travel, we'll it wouldn't help me in the slightest to switch to bottom mount. Tires are already touching fender. I really need another puck up front and maybe 2 in the back.

The front round pucks are tilted because I didn't have bolt tight enough.

Never could get comfortable with gasoline on the bumper.
Call me crazy.
I agree that it is somewhat vulnerable in the current location, but I don’t plan on running with it on the highway any more than necessary (from gas station to trailhead).

Sweet dude! I’m gonna go with AAL fender light kit, I love that clean look it gives the fenders and also keeps the trademark look of the jl. Also doing artec inner fender since I already have the artec inners in the rear. How was the front artecs to install?
Its not to bad, I have a rivnut gun, but I didn't have the right size so ended up using a couple screws and reused some of the plastic push pins. There is a video on YouTube that is helpful.

2 more bolts and the window trim comes off. Your Jeep looks great
I agree, but sometimes I like to put the soft top back up if the sun is too much or if rain. Is that still possible with the trim on? If so, maybe I’ll do that
