Thanks I will do that. I'm hoping to get more use out of them back there. I use my rear lights all the time.

haha actually...... Someday I will take an expedition type trip. I see all this as building toward the day I live out of my jeep for 6 months off road the entire time.

Of course were hitting some trails at night bro. Not sure how the WK is but backing the XK up at night in the woods is a PITA.

Installed a Mygig with Nav....







I screwed up the bezel quite a bit with the dremel...scratched it all to hell. I'm going to buy a new one and find someone else to help me out. I don't have the patience to do something like this.

Besides cutting the bezel, how was the install? Is it all plug and play?

Totally plug and play. The hardest part was the bezel, which I clearly failed at. The second hardest part was routing the sat radio extension cable from the mygig to the back of the car.

Make sure you buy the navi one(if you're talking about what I think you are). It has a cover type thing above it(like your dash)

Its hard to describe. Go onto ebay if you care to know. Find a wk with navi and you'll know what I mean. Its the dash piece.

The factory nav bezel looks funny with a mygig, IMO because there is a fan at the top and bottom that requires a spacer. You can easily cut the non-nav bezel if you have any patience.
