Got the passenger seat done…kinda…took forever because I’m still not 100% from covid but also this was my first time doing this. Install wasn’t bad, however the side zippers are cheap quality. While zipping the left side up the zipper broke off. So now I can’t close that side of the seat. Gonna try a zipper repair kit or just take it to an upholstery shop and have them stitch it closed. Very happy otherwise. When I do the other seats extreme caution will be used at the zipper area. Hog rings were a bit of a learning curve but once figured out it’s easy.

just gonna do one seat at a time so this might take a while lol

Installed the Mopar Trailer Brake Controller.

Dumb that Max Tow doesn't include these.
So how did you manage to get one of these ? Mine is on back order !

if that repair zipper works maybe try a hair dryer to warm up the leather a bit so it stretches for the zipper. if your worried about the leather, painters tape thin shop rags (or paper towels) over the leather to lessen the direct contact with the heat.

(I had to edit this...I sound like English is my 5th language...)

Installed an AEV steering stabilizer on the Mojave. Now the truck is perfect. Tracks straight and the steering is tight! Took all but 15 minutes for a huge upgrade! It’s made by Billstein!

I wonder how this will match up against the fox 2.0 most of us got.

Increased caster will take some of the "loose" feeling out.

MoparOnlineParts.com shipped in two days. I might have gotten lucky though?

Threedom S+ Key Fob Replacement.

Straight forward install, good instructional video. It is way lighter and a little bit smaller, plus no more stabbing yourself in the leg with the flip out key.

I like it so far…it was only $120 from AEV. Put one on my wife’s brand new Rubicon. Her steering was way more loose feeling. She can tell a huge difference.
Thats a pretty dang good price. I went ahead and ordered one for my wife’s JLU

Installed a Rugged Ridge tri-fold cover. Pretty happy with the fit and quality. Installing the bulkhead bracket was tricky. Having a friend with long, skinny fingers is recommended though.

I have this as well. Direct from Bilstein. No complaints. Steering feels great, no pulling.

It won't fix the horrible aerodynamics, having a steering box vs a rack, and solid axles.

I highly recommend them.
