You can't honestly think cops have so little to do that they're going to lie about your speed so they can stop you do you?
I have been pulled over and ticketed for 15 over 35, right after being stopped at a red light. Apparently I was drag racing in my Ram 1500...
In Virginia that's automatically reckless driving, and when I tried to dispute it the officer lied and said he saw me speeding from "way down the road, before the red light."
Inflated tickets are definitely a problem.

No issues with the Sunrider for Hardtop?
I just recieved the Bestop Bikini Targa length and it won't work with the Sunrider either. Yes you can put it on but you can't reach up and unlatch the Sunrider to open it.

Bestop really screwed the pooch here by not releasing the retractable bikini for the JL. The one for the JK is so sweet.

the fact that they did not make it so 2 of their products work together has to be the most ridiculous thing! I don't understand as far as the retractable sunshade, How long has it been in R&D?

who ever did the install at NorthRidge needs to get a raise. You never see someone properly Tick mark after torquing bolts these days. This is something every company should do

I like the the covers!
Don’t you worry about the interior, most importantly the dash and associated electronics?

Can all the doors be adjusted? I asked the dealer to do it and they said they couldn't.
Don't know for sure but I don't see why not. All it took was a torx tip to the latch on the door sill. I marked the original location with tape, loosened the bolts a little, adjusted it to where I wanted it and tightened it. Pretty easy actually.

Added a pair of KC 6" Pro-Sport with Gravity® LED G6 Wide-40 to the front bumper. I had ordered a set of Mopar mounting brackets from @Northridge4x4 but found that the lights were too big to fit on the brackets. Made a quick decision to bolt them directly to the bumper and figured I’d replace the bumper soon enough anyway.

Bought one of those Alien shades off Amazon for the front. Price and quality Is good. I grew up in Tx and thought i was good w the sun. Here in the front range the sun is a whole different $hit i get burnt w less than one hour of direct exposure lol! Anyway, installed the shade, drove from Castle Rock to Deckers to Kenosha Pass and back last weekend (plenty sun) with only the sunshade. Got home said damn it got sunburned woke up the next day realized most of it was windburn. That’s about a 5 hour in the direct sun drive (total back and forth stopping to pee and coffee and all that). And if you have been in Colorado anywhere near summer you know our sun burns the dog-$hit out of people lol! The shade made a HUGE difference and I have left my front panels off ever since i put the shade on. Ill post pics at some point
Alien Shades for both front and rear was one of the first purchases I made for mine. Arizona sun makes these a requirement!

So did you drill holes directly into the bumper?

Work in progress on this one...
My wife ordered the KC Flex Bar in 10" Combo Lighting.
>>>Pause for important note... If you haven't noticed from her build thread, she is super particular about how everything looks.<<<
The included KC brackets would not mount to the bumper in a way that would fit the light, and, the KC grill guard (tube) mounts put the light too high for her taste. Off to the fabricator she went. He made the following brackets that are now at the powder-coater to get a black wrinkle finish.
And here is a bonus note. If someone on the forum is picking up the KC 10" Flex Bar that has the Steel Factory Bumper and wants the lights mounted low, she had two extra sets made in case someone wants to buy a set at her cost.

And a test at the fabricator's (sorry just a tiny screenshot):
