One day, you will look back on this and laugh. Until then, may the trails open wide and the sun beam down upon your Jeep brightly. B-)

While I'm waiting for the slowest acrylic delivery ever, I went ahead and bought a Motorola Xyboard 10.1 tablet. Any guesses as to where that will end up? Yeah, custom Android install here we come!

Also, assuming I have any free time after I start making the LED rings, I'm looking at other uses for my CNC. I literally came up with the following in about 5 minutes time. Please pay no attention to the details, the font, or the overall dimensions and shape. **This is a proof of concept only.** I was obviously inspired by the Trail Rated badges, but I could put anything on something like this, or a variation thereof. Basically, if a graphic can be black and white, or at least not have any overlapping colors, I can convert it to a badge/emblem. Milled in aluminum and polished preferably. Painting would be more time consuming. So, would there be any interest in pursuing something like this?

Do the headlights need to be removed to install the 4xguard matrix?

My apologies, I had not detected any sarcasm in your post. I am a friend to any who want one, a brother to any who needs one but a lover to only one (taken).

Got the new shocks and struts and sway bay connectors installed! What a freaking difference! And I thought it couldn't get better!
Oh, and I found out that my spare is not only full size, but on the same rim as the rest of them! What a nice upgrade!

I've been using rooted and custom ROM's B&N Nook Color in my TJ for the past 2 years, and I love it's functionality. Ever since I got the WK I can't get past everything it's lacking. Sure, I've added bluetooth to the factory stereo and can stream from my phone, but it's not the same as a true integration.

Some may wonder why I chose the Xyboard in particular. A few reasons really, but mostly because it's one of the smallest overall tablets that still has a 10" screen. Most anything else won't fit between the factory vents. I'll be retaining the OEM stereo, but setting it back further in the dash opening. The tablet will sit in front of it, and 'slot' in from the top. It may be hard to visualize, but I think you'll like what I have planned.

Are you going to have outward mounts or is it going to be mounted in the bezel? I've contemplated doing this my Nexus 7 but I want it to be removable. Be sure to post your progress!

Sounds awesome, can't wait to see.

Damn, I was really shooting for that lover position.

It will be in the bezel, but still easily removable. The goal is to have it look somewhat factory, but yet custom. If that makes any sense. Lol.
