I have the REN unit in my wife's GC and she's wanting to be able to use bluetooth for phone calls and such, did this unit have that ability and could you still use the backup camera?

It does have the ability to make calls over Bluetooth with the IPhone, I'm not sure what other phones it is compatible with though. As far as the back-up camera I am not 100% sure. IIRC it does have the option to but I don't personally have a back-up camera on my Jeep.

I put it back on. I cut down the section of the liner where it sticks out and heated it up then folded it over and smoothed it out. Finished it off with a self tapping screw on each side of the Pinch weld and I was good to go. I don't have any pictures of it after the liner was put back on but I can take some
appreciate pictures of that

JeepN4KC, it's one less eye sore on the roads. She was screaming for help when I seen her on the car lot. Had to do the right thing lol. So far my build plans are waiting for my new lift to arrive and then get it installed along with some 35's. I have been searching Craigslist for some time now and have found quite a few sets that still have good tread and a good price. Storage right now is a pain so I may have to wait till after the lift is installed to get them. After that I will be installing a CB and then I want to try and create my own cargo area drawer setup similar to Valpacer's. And then of course I will be adding some armour for the more difficult trails around here After that it will be little things here and there and hopefully a Matrix!

Thanks! I like how the red turned out with it. Something a little different from everyone else. The hardest part with red plasti dip is finding it unless you order it online haha.

Trust me, I can't wait to see the lift either. Getting excited knowing its one day closer everyday!

Looking at these two ads on CL for 35's. One is a true 35" tire the other set is 315/70/17. Gotta look and see what each one weighs.

Don't know about the Coopers but the Procomp MTs weigh about 68lbs new.. Run the MTs on my TJ and love them.

Not bad at all for 35" tires. My only concern with those is the tread of the bottom 2. Great price for them and isn't to far of a drive so may have to go take a look at them.

Im thinking the coopers are almost the same thing as the toyo mts, and nitto trail graps, so they'd be heavier.

If I find some time today I will do some research and see if I can find the exact weight. I'm also thinking they will be on the heavy side along with toyo mts, and nitto's at 80lbs+
