i'll probably just order the one for the dash then. that's the only spot with the netting that i actually use for anything, but it suddenly got too stretched out.

did you get the stereo or anything else installed? pics! pics! pics!

Stereo not yet, haven't had time to try and understand the wiring let alone tear the dash apart to install it. I did install and run the backup camera I got, and tomorrow I'm taking it in for an oil change so I'm going to ask them to enable the backup camera in the stock radio in the mean time (just backed up into the pilar this morning in the structure and put a tiny dent in the bumper).

I have installed the camp light, but not powered it (no time yet and I want to install a switch and need to figure out where to put it) and so far, I'm not happy with the 3m adhesive dots they provided, there are just 5 spread across the thing and there is a slight curve to the glass so it really only connects solidly at the two end points and the middle dots all don't stick. Even though they are the high bond dots, they don't really stick well, so I'm going to remove them all, clean it w/alcohol wipes and use 1/2" 3M VHB tape along the whole thing, that should ensure that it will never ever come off.

haven't installed the rock lights yet, the headlights I need to re-do because the wiring that came with it wasn't long enough so I had to order and extension for the drivers side headlight halo's so I can move the control module to a better position instead of front and center, I also had to order adapters for the fog's because they didn't have the correct connector which was really lame considering it was for the Jeep...

And I need to go on a shopping trip for camping stuffs so we can Sleep in the Jeep (tm) when we go up north to SF at the end of the month.

I'll get pics of it all when I end up re-doing it.

BTW, did you ever install the bestop drivers seat storage box (or any other one)? I'm wondering how you stopped the clunk sound when you take off at a light because I know if you did install it that it would drive you nuts just like mine does to me. I'm thinking a small rubber bumper at the back of the drawer to put a tiny bit of pressure on it to keep it in place, but I haven't gotten under to figure out how to pull the entire box out to put the bumper on (again, time... but i'll probably get to it this weekend).

sounds like any typical Jeep modding experience... i can never finish anything on first try because i always need one more part or have to change some other thing first!

on that under-seat drawer - yes, of course i had to fix that clunk! i mounted a small magnet inside the housing so that it holds onto the back end of the drawer when it's closed. i think it was a 10 or 20 pound rated little countersunk disc kinda like these..., small enough that i can still easily pull the drawer open with the key as the only handle.

IIRC, i mounted the magnet right to the inside rear of the housing and spaced it off from there with a couple washer so that it would just reach the back end of the drawer when fully closed... or i might have made a little L bracket to hold the magnet, i can't member - gettin old!

i also removed the stop so i can take the drawer all the way out to rummage through it.
