Any Pictures, I run a trektop and haven't seen a deck option that would fit.
Here’s the post from Chris

Brett

Since picking up my Gladiator I really haven't done much to my wife's JLU. This weekend I went to visit @rustyshakelford and @JohnP to check out their new cargo shelf. After seeing it in person I had to bring one home for my wife. Having installed it really has me thinking of switching back to a hardtop from the Trektop. All the accessory mounting options are awesome.

Sorry thought it was on a different Rig. Looks like it wouldn't fit with the full trektop on.
It fits great with the full trektop. We modified the mount to allow the use with that top!

Any questions, let us know.

I'm leaning toward the Metalcloak and think the design may make it stronger. With a brand new JLUR and having to change the front diff cover to use the MC Front Diff skid has me a little hesitant. At least the rear can be bolted on without a diff cover swap. After Lite Brite videos I knew the full under body was going on so at least that was easy.

Crappy pic, but fits great with the trektop

how does this plug into the dash/Jeep?
It’s pretty simple, but not for the faint of heart if you can’t take seeing the dash of a $50K Jeep torn apart. I got the idea and parts list from forum member @Mantacon here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/installing-the-front-camera-and-roku-follow.14729/

If you look at the parts on my workbench, I laid them out how they connect. The yellow video cable on the upper left is what plugs into the head unit, then the rest attach in order. Again, not terribly difficult, but some disassembly required. Cost was around $100 or so for everything.

Thanks, looks like it would be worth the price! Cut and ripped the jeep up pretty good already for the 55k price tag, definitely not for the faint of heart, lol. ;)

Installed near rear Warn Elite full length bumper! Was kinda a pain to install because of the stupid carriage bolts, they kept wanting to pop out when tightening the nuts that hold the bumper on. Got the one with the rear tire carrier cable, don't plan on doing that yet since I already spent allot upgrading the rear gate etc, but cool option down the road. The license plate bracket was awesome just plug and play with the stock light and the back up senors were pretty easy as long as you don't mind extending one of them to reach the new rear sensor spot. Overall super happy now I just need to pick out some sweet looking shackles! Btw your rear stock bumper is being held on by 4 bolts, 4.....:whew:

Installed front and rear track bars from Rusty’s off-road. Front axle was 1/4inch off center, the back was centered. Crazy how with just a 1.5” spacer lift shifts everything. Also had to re-center the steering wheel.
