Rubicon JLU. It's a Jeep.
Our guy Jax is a VERY athletic (and ultra smart) McNab Border Collie who's used to leaping in and out the truck with no problem.
With the new JLU when he first took a leap into the back seat area he landed on the smooth/slippery plastic parts between the door sill and the Mopar mat and lost his footing and a split second later hit the ground hard, poor guy.
That really put him off jumping into the Jeep again, so we inserted a non slip surface on that part of the flooring so he gets a good grip each time.

The plastic used internally in the JL is not something that takes to adhesives kindly and most thing won’t work on it, but my wife works in Special FX (all those Marvel movies etc etc) and is used to fabricating all kinds of things so she took to getting it done.
The adhesive we used was by Ultratape (actually not a tape but a gel that’s held on a tape for usage), the non slip surface is a rubber material used for shoe soles.
After applying the gel to the rubber and washing and then cleaning the JL surface with acetone and applying the gel-bound rubber to the JL that sucker (technical term) isn’t going anywhere.

Jax is much happier!

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
NFAB tubular side steps, 2.5” RC lift, stock badge delete, added Mopar Satin Black grill, Fuel Maverick wheels in 20x9 with Nitto Terra Grappler 2 in 35x12.5 20, stubby antenna, 5% tint all around except for windshield, added Flag decal plus vinyl wrap for front fender cowl. I have the fifth wheel but am waiting on delivery of my Rough Country tailgate / spare tire relocation bracket to mount the tire up. Next up will be aftermarket front and rear bumpers later this year and perhaps intake / exhaust and some LED exterior lights integrated into bumpers. What an absolutely fun vehicle this is. My family loves it as do I, and that’s all that matters!! Thanks to everyone here for their inspiration.

]Well I did a couple of minor mods. The mopar door sill kit and the 3rd brake light relocate kit. I also disconnected the hood switch that disables the Start/Stop feature. The only time I really hate the ESS system is when I'm pulling up to park somewhere and it shuts off before I'm fully parked and then restarts. For example, if I'm parking in the garage and I'm checking my clearance. Not pictured is the replace a windshield mod! I had a small chip and took it to a glass company to get filled/sealed. Turns out that was a big mistake. Once they drilled into it and injected the resin it started running like crazy!! I also picked up one of those black Jeep Gear hard badges but I think my son is gonna put it on his new Jeep bed.
