I reprogrammed my PAC SWI-JACK so I can control my Alpine from the factory steering wheel controls again. For some reason it really started acting up a few months ago. Reprogramming it seemed to work. I also pulled the iPod adapter I had plugged into my Alpine because I crushed it with my parking break handle last week. Time to order a new one. The dash is apart right now and I won't put it back together until I get that and get my e-fan controls installed.

Mine's been sitting since January and will continue to do so for another month or so, realistically.

How many gallons did you use on the whole thing? And did you do black monstaliner on the bumpers and cladding or just monstaliner on the body?
2 gallons of desert sand and a quart for the rockers and cladding bumpers are just krylon fusion gloss black. Which is almost identical to the black Monstaliner. If I were to do it again though I would have done 3 gals of desert sand

I reorganized the back end of the Jeep, and realized I need a 3.3K resister on my clipped "Low Oil Level" sensor wires to rid of the flashing VIC indicator.

Put a hitch mounted D-ring on it, changed the ash tray light bulb, and drove it to and from work.

Retorqued my trans pan, trimmed my front bumper where it rubbed and pounded my pinch seam. Need to get splash guards from a junk yard cause found out mine were cut all up by the PO. And I need to fiberglass fill some holes that removing the splash guard revealed lol.

engine mounts when bad feel wobbly also
I havnt mounted the duelers yet, the dw is pretty violent when it happens and its just annihilating the 225's i had on there before the lift so I decided to leave those on til I got the wobbles under control. Replaced the engine mounts and the trans mount around 7 or 8 months ago.

I installed one of those in my wife's WJ and had the same problem about 3 weeks or so after the install. Once I reprogrammed it, its worked perfectly since then.

Also, since I put in a head unit that had Bluetooth capabilities, I reprogrammed the center buttons on her steering wheel to pick up and disconnect phone calls rather then search through the presets like the factory had it.

Yeah. I have mine programmed differently than factory as well. I have the left side for volume and the middle button for mute. The right side switches through tracks or stations. Factory is opposite with volume and search an the middle button I think is a p. scan.
