I was looking at the Alaskan Flag insert because The Big Dipper was the first constellation that my grandfather pointed out to me and the North Star is the quintessential navigational aid. I opted for old glory instead because I'm not from Alaska.
Old Glory works all the time... you can never go wrong. I have a dual-sided with her to break out every now & then.

Finished installing my Trektop. I wish it would warm up a bit so I can paint my JCR sliders, it looks so naked without anything there.

Installed this EAG relocation kit so the tire will clear my bike rack setup with a 33” tire. Looks almost exactly like the Rough Country one and it is heavy duty and the powdercoat is well done. Super easy to install. Worst part was lifting the 95 pound wheel and tire after the install. This saved me a lot of space on the back with the bike rack and Kuat swing away extension. Hard to beat for the price.

What camera did you use and how does it mount? I'm surprised front cameras don't come on JLs. I believe the Gladiator will have one.

I used the following:
The camera is great. Its sort of genius that they have these small wires that loop out of the cord and depending on your install you cut them or leave them uncut. For example, if you mount it like I did, you cut one wire to flip the image left and right (because its default is rear facing) and you cut another wire to flip it upside down (because its default is to be mounted under the lip of a trunk (which is the opposite of what I did) and there's an additional wire to clip that would remove the "distance markers" if you weren't interested in that as well. Quality is great although the rear camera that comes with the Jeep is a bit sharper compared.

You need the video cable and Tazer to connect and then enable the "cargo camera" option. This gives you the ability to engage the uConnect system to show you the video feed. And I wired the camera as outlined in this thread: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/off-road-camera-front-facing-writeup.13714/

I installed a Roost USA Roof Top Tent on the American Jeeper JL Wrangler. Love it and can’t wait to get out and use it!
