    So, I was thinking of people contributing to any hidden, quirky, buried feature that an average casual user might not know and this way we all can learn more about all the features of the JT.

    Please feel free to contribute...

    Aren’t those referred to as Easter Eggs?

    LOL I only enjoy watching Doug DeMuro's videos for the YT comments - I think they are beyond hilarious. Kinda like Joe Rogan JRE comments when they change their middle names.... I find that really amusing :)

    @smlobx Nah I didn't mean easter eggs - which are like the jeep logos etc that are not really functional. I am just taking about the features that most of us woudln't know unless we read the owner's manual cover to cover...

    It took me a while to notice everything locks. The center console, glove box, under seat storage and the rear seat back. So when the doors come off, don't forget to stow your gear and lock it all up!

    Also. The mud mats came from the factory/dealer with the floor drain plugs installed. But the mat has a little oval that is supposed to funnel excess water through the floor board. So a new owner will need to pull up the mat and remove/keep the plug. Then push the mat back in place with oval pressed into the floor board. The plug can then be added and removed to the mat as needed.

    If you mean the slide-out at the end, my 04 WJ has that and I LOVE it. Swing the visor to the side, pull that piece out and the sun isn't catching the corner of your eye.

    Along the C-Pillar, there's a small clip you slide your rear seat belts into to keep them out of the way, and to prevent flapping in the wind with the doors removed.I didn't know about it until I saw someone post about it somewhere. I couldn't find the original post, or I would have linked it here.

    To keep from losing your milk as you go vertical over the hill to get home? Gee, wish my future Overland had some of this stuff - but maybe it does - it's not built yet!
    Next thing FCA will add artificial gravity as an option to the Rubicon.
