Man, that makes me wish my Garmin was a bluetooth model. I have the 255WT. I knew I should have coughed up the extra cash a couple years ago to get the 265WT... Oh well. That's really neat though. Maybe I'll upgrade my Garmin just to get that.

Yeah, my exhaust is 3" as well. That wasn't as much of an issue for me though, but I had a hell of a time getting them in there with the bushings. Do you have any problems with the trackbar hitting the exhaust at all? Mine occasionally hits over large bumps when the Jeep comes back down, or at least that's what it sounds like. I haven't had the chance to crawl under there to see what's actually hitting. I'd imagine that it's got something to do with that and I'd probably see some scratches on the trackbar where the contact is being made. It's either that or my rear coils. I couldn't get the little coil retainers back on over the new rear coils after the lift. I figured those weren't extremely important since there's a lot of vehicles that don't even have them. If they are, you better bet I'll be under there figuring out a way to get them back into place.

Ripped off the butt-ugly, low hanging tube steps on my stock-height 5.9 Limited. Gained 6" of ground clearance and lost 50 pounds.

On my old Cherokee Golden Eagle I could put a full size pad in the back of it. Now I need to set something up like that again and also what I had where there's a nylon tarp that fastens up to 3 or 4 places on each side of the ceiling, covering the ceiling, draping down over the windows and dropping down at the front seats.
Kind of like putting a tent inside of your jeep. Gives you privacy, helps keep it warmer and no one can tell you are sleeping in the back.

I've parked at trailheads where no overnight camping is allowed and crashed out in the back of my jeep this way.

What Garmin do you have paired with it? It's a very slick gadget especially for our old Zj's.

Old ZJ, most people think my jeep is only 1 or 2 years old!!

I have the Garmin 3790LMT, got it on sale at Costo.
