  1. I've had the XPEL film on several cars on the front spoiler & running boards and on the jeep grill/hood as a "bra" - it soaks up all the damage from gravel and debris. It comes off cleanly with a heat gun (and scratches and dents can usually be repaired with a few seconds of high heat). If you get a pre-cut kit it's not too hard to apply yourself, but does need a heat gun.
  2. Paint protection film is good for stuff like that if you want to keep the factory paint color
  3. Yeah there’s https://www.hipcamp.com and airbnb does campsites now
  4. I have the Rugged Ridge. It’s not great - my phone pops out of it randomly. I had to add a silicone strap to keep it secure.
  5. According to this they’re part of an aftermarket top https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/yj-mucket-seal-850410/
  6. "nearly 1/16" further inset on the right side" That's why belt sanders and veneer exist

  8. Most ransomware requires some action from you like opening an email attachment or downloading something from a shady website. The recent incident with wannacry spreads using a defect in Windows that was discovered by the NSA and stolen and repurposed by clever criminals. You can improve your security by enabling Windows firewall, enabling automatic updates and using one (or more) antivirus apps. I say "or more" because they don't all detect everything. Make sure you make regular backups and know how to restore them (backblaze is good)

  10. A little noise reduction on the shadow to eliminate the bright spots
  11. MotionX and Topo Maps which let's you use the USGS maps.
  12. I use an iPad with the Bad Elf gps. I tried one of the Bluetooth gps units, but it wouldn't stay connected to the iPad reliably. The only issue I have is that you have to make sure you download enough map detail before you leave ( or wander around trying to find a signal)
  13. Adventure Trailers has a couple replacement tops for the JK that are accessible from inside. http://www.adventuretrailers.com/camper.html
  14. It is legal, but you're liable if it fails. http://www.tirereview.com/article/86571/court_verdict_will_forever_shine_bright_light_on_tire_repair_practices.aspx
  15. "They must have done something illegal to get arrested..."
  16. You don't have to accept their offer. I just went through this with my insurance. They wanted to write off my Jeep because they use very unrealistic valuations. If you haven't already, you should compile a sample of replacement vehicles currently for sale and show them what they'll need to pay. After that you request arbitration and if you're still not whole you can file a civil suit against the driver and/or the vehicle's registered owner.
