Just got the snap caps for the key holes in the doors. I thought there was one on the tailgate but I guess they don’t put those anymore.

@MadDog27

Those black covers really set off so to speak, your Yella..
Look great with your antenna that you painted black too.

Yup, no key slot on the tail gate with some of the newer JL/JLU's.

Hey!.... how does the Wife like the covers?

I didn’t know there wasn’t a key slot in the tailgate until now but I like the cleaner look.

Wife likes the new look. The black antenna and black key slots go well together. Thanks for the suggestion as well!

I think you may be in luck! Mine were a slightly different (older?) design, open/exposed on both ends.

So, there's a glimmer of hope, yet! I just want these f*ckers to open when I need them to.

Replaced the soundbar speakers with the Alpine SPV 65 JLTs. I have the base audio system and these have made a big difference. Only a little louder but richer and more engulfing.

How involved was the removal of the soundbar?

seems like it would be a pain but it wasn’t too bad. Just take off the panels either side and loosen the connecting ones, then remove the panel holding the done light to access the four bolts to remove the soundbar. Takes about 15 minutes. Search for these speakers on YouTube and there’s a long installation video someone posted that goes into detail for removing the soundbar

I was looking at getting these but the price ... do you feel that it was worth it?

I think so. Especially if you have the base system and just want better sound without the hassle and expense of adding an amplifier. Though I do plan to add one in the future. For sure, they’re not cheap but they are top quality and fit perfect. The biggest draw for me, outside of looks and quality of sound, was that they are also made to give you less lost sound with the roof and doors off.

Installed some auxiliary backup lights (turn on when in reverse only) to shed some light on a dark world ;)

For reference, the factory reverse bulbs have also been replaced with superbright 6k LEDs.

How do you like the Mopar lift. On and off road? I am researching options even just a spacer lift, so undecided.
I'm very impressed with the Mopar lift! Very smooth on the road/highway. While driving, I tend to forget that I lifted my Jeep because there is zero decrease in drive quality / feels like stock. It's also nice to know that my warranty won't be effected.
I can't speak to extreme trails/rock crawling. But I did drive through thick mud trails/ponds and it performed great!
