Only waiting on replacement fog light bezels. To swap the cracked ones that came in the box. Very happy with the looks and weight of this whole setup...

EDIT: Something I forgot to include... before and after height measurements... Height stayed the same. Cool!

I like this mod that a few other forum members have done:

IMG_1446.jpeg


I like anything that would make my vehicle more visible on the road while still keeping a factory look...

Got the idea from this thread here: What’s your best mod for appearance, comfort, bang for the buck and usability?

Mopar: Mirror Cap, Right - Product ID: 68361982AA - $39.53
Mopar: Mirror Cap, Left - Product ID: 68361983AA - $39.53
Mopar: Turn Signal Lamp, Left - Product ID: 68361957AA - $54.52
Mopar: Turn Signal Lamp, Right - Product ID: 68361956AA - $54.52
EBay: Optional, less expensive, turn signal lamp set - eBay - $23.37 these come in clear or smoked... take your pick.
Amazon: 20 AWG Silicone JST Plug Connector for Turn Signal Lights (Not included with Ebay lights) - $8.29
Jeep JL/JT Auxiliary Lighting Harness - Harness to avoid splicing into factory wiring - $44.95 + shipping
Amazon: Wire connectors to be able to disconnect when removing the doors. - I do not see myself removing the doors on my Jeep... but just in case -$6.99

Thread I used to gather all this information: Added Mirror Turn Signals

EDIT: Might as well add a puddle light while I am there...

Amazon: Clear puddle LED lights - US$9.99

Finally took the time to install the power to the GMRS radio... Using the Quadratec 12 Volt Power Adapter for 99-22 Jeep Wrangler TJ,JK,JL & Gladiator JT

Quadratec-JL-APT-12-Volt-Power-Adapter-Jeep-Wrangler-JL_0.jpg


And only managed to loose one clip 🤣 It went into the void... I went ahead and ordered a few to have some spares... Meanwhile, borrowed one from the cover under the steering wheel. Easier to replace that one when the new one comes in...

Anyway... that is done. One less power cable visible in the cabin...

I make cardboard boxes
Had the same setup in my JL, worked great. Just have to install in the JT now.

Did you get the clips from Amazon or the dealer? If Amazon, have a link?

Tray insert is great. That was a good buy. Can't be beat for US$6.99

IMG_0018.jpeg


This adapter was not... I need to see if I can find what others are using... not only is this elbow USB huge, but it is oriented in the wrong direction!

Might as well start to modify and progress the kitchen build...

IMG_0030.jpeg


Need to cut 3-1/2" from the sides so that I can close the tonneau cover without issues.

IMG_0026.jpeg

First line from the top is where the top panel will be... second line is where I need to cut...

IMG_0028.jpeg


Once I cut the sides and reinstall the top... need to focus on cutting out the hole for the sink. Then to finish installing one more small drawer that will be used for the utensils, and front covers. Then paint.

Also need to drill the holes for the rivnuts to secure everything to the bed.

A few more photos...

I can slide just the drawers.... Photo does not have the drawers all the way out. The come all the way out and the slides lock to avoid issues if not on a leveled surface.

IMG_0029.jpeg

IMG_0031.jpeg


There is enough space in there to install a couple of Rotopax water tanks...

IMG_0035.jpeg

Or the whole thing as I am using an ARB sliding tray...

Wanted to change the oil earlier, but closed and opened my eyes and it already has 2100 miles...


IMG_9806.jpeg


Used this as it meets specifications from Chrysler...

IMG_9807.jpeg

IMG_9808.jpeg


Next oil change is done by the dealer as part of the deal... at 5,000 miles.

After that, I started looking at how to install the fuel RotopaX... I know, I know... my previous truck was a diesel... I will get red ones ;)

I will need to make a spacer and bracket where I can install the Rotopax mount offset... tank will hang a little on the side of the bed to clear the tent... I just need to order the quick release tent mounts from Go-Rhino to figure out how much of an offset I will need...

IMG_9811.jpeg

IMG_9810.jpeg


A few more photos... why not!

I have a similar setup on my Mojave: Roll N Lock, Go Rhino with

I have a similar setup on my Mojave: Roll N Lock, Go Rhino, quick release tent mounts, and roof nest tent. Good Stuff. I had to remove the Fishbone rack to fit in garage.

That is what my setup will end up looking like... I will get the XRS Rhino Quick Release Tent Brackets when I finally decide on the tent...

What model of the Roofnest do you have? I was not aware they had them in that footprint.

Finished adding some internal brackets to make it a bit more sturdy... then gave it a coat of paint.

For the life of me I thought I had a quart of bed liner paint... could not find it... So I grabbed a quart of hammered black paint and used that... was not going to buy more paint... At least it looks a bit better now...

It is the Condor series. They now also have a more rugged aluminum shell series in the same size.
