  1. Genius! Always enjoy seeing things from someone else's point of view. I've been wanting to do a trash bag but didn't want to cover up the camera. This is very clever.
  2. Have you considered mounting the switch inside the cab? It will stay dry and probably be easier to reach.
  3. I want to play... With all that wiring, my guess is that it is a security system.
  4. Just wanted to mention the head liner that I made for my JKU from EVA foam. This stuff is pretty inexpensive and very easy to work with. You often find it like this: The stuff I used came in a roll meant for a larger surface: Covering the freedom panels was easy as I just removed them and flipped them upside down. Tracing and measuring, I was able to come up with a good fit. I had some trouble keeping them glued in place. Can't remember what I tried first, but I ended up using Shoo Goo and it has been holding fine for a few years now. To cover the rest, I just measured and held them in place with some tape and a couple of thin strips of lumber while the glue set. Where I live, it doesn't get Arizona heat, but on our sunny days, it helps a lot as you don't feel as much heat blasting on your head. In the winter I think it helps insulate too. I think my install cost maybe $35 Doesn't look as the manufactured liner and not as easy to install. I like it though!
  5. Here is what I made. I'm always looking for a flat surface. I use this to hold tools and as a work bench. Probably wouldn't hold up too well if you were to sit on it but it is surprisingly strong. Some paracord is being used for the supports. Originally I was going to use cable but the paracord is easy to work with and doesn't rattle around when the shelf is folded up. Nutserts are used to hold the aluminum angle to the gate. The shelf is just a piece of pine shelf. The hinge is nothing more than a 1/4 - 20 bolt that threads into a threaded insert on each side. To help keep the bolt from ripping out of the wood, another piece of angle was used. It distributes the force over a much larger area and keeps the wood from splitting. These pictures are a couple of years old now. Eventually I replaced the wood shelf with a piece of Baltic birch plywood. The paracord is holding up fine as I have only had to adjust it one time.
  6. I like this! Want something like this on my JKU but I don't have a roof rack. So far, I have a couple of extendable poles and a few bungee cords. Progress has stopped.
  7. I went out wheeling so I didn't have a bunch of time to try different things, but I did give this one a shot: "Autosleeper Auto power ON-OFF" This was perfect. Start up my Jeep and the tablet comes on and when I turn off the key, it shuts off. Sometimes it resumes the last program I was running, but sometimes it goes to the home screen. I used Waze and Locus Map Pro for navigation, Torque Pro to see what the engine was up to and DoubeTwist for tunes. I want to check out some other navigation apps for off road use. Maybe just looking over the operating instructions for what I have will help. So far though, I don't seem to understand it enough to be of much use. The mount I'm trying out is the XENOMIX SHG-NX4000 I think the mount is fine for use on a paved road but offroad, it would be nice if it held more firmly. Sorry for the thread hijack - I hope I didn't detour it too much. Thank you again for helping get me started. Al
  8. Thank you for your reply. I will get on this a little later today and try and report back. Al
  9. You are quite an inspiration! Thanks for sharing. Can you give me any tips on where to find configuration info on this. Google is my friend, but I'm not wining this time.
