I am particularly interested in your dual camera video system.
How is it holding up after all this time?
Is your visor strong enough to hold it upright 24/7? ie it doesn't fall down on you.
If the screen is installed a little farther right, could I avoid altering the pivot mechanism?
Do you use it as much as you expected?
Are you able to use yours when towing/connecting your hitch to a trailer?
It actually worked fine for a while, but it did eventually fail and wouldn't stay all the way up. After some time I got tired of it and pulled it out and put a normal visor back in. I got a smaller 4" display and stuck it to my dash to use instead. I don't like it as much but it works for now. Eventually I have a 7" android stereo that's going in when I have time to mess with it, then I can use that instead.

I can't use the backup cam for connecting a trailer because I'd have to remove it from my hitch to install the drop hitch, but I suppose you could pull it out and set it on the bumper temporarily while you backed up.

I don't remember exactly how long they were, but I think they were about 3" long. I don't have them anymore otherwise I'd measure them for you. Just disconnect you line and drop the axle as far as your shocks or straps will allow and see how long your extensions need to be.

Also, how did you address your speedometer with the difference in tire size?
The 17" JK Moabs will stick out .25" more compared to the WK wheels. I run 1" spacers front and rear with them, but I have much larger tires and a lift. You could run the spacers and wheels without a lift. I'm personally not a fan of the squatty look that gives, but it's all personal preference.

I use a SuperChips programmer to correct for tire size. There are many different solutions these days to choose from. Back when I got mine it was either SC or Diablo.

Hey Omelet, do you still have that template? I'm planning on setting up a snorkel for mine (I live and work in flash flood areas), and would love the help! I'm happy to pay that small fee, too, if needed.

I have had quite a few guys asking for the template lately. I still need to fine it. I moved recently and can't remember where I put it. Thankfully I do remember still having it and packing it some where though! And I was joking about the fee. I might ask for you to cover shipping, but that'd be it.

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't been doing much with this build for a while. I still have plenty of great ideas and plans (aka delusions of grandeur) I just haven't had the time or money lately. With my ever growing family I've had to move into a larger house and buy a larger vehicle to accommodate everyone. All of which eats away at the Jeep project fund and it's only one of the many projects I have going on at any given time. Plus with my never ceasing op tempo at work, project time has to be strategically balanced around family time.

Anyways I have a couple projects in the works and will hopefully have some in the next couple months to start tinkering again on the Jeep!
