Hey there, nice work! Did you have to drill any holes for the rear recovery point? And would you mind sending me a pm with the details of where I can buy it from on Ebay? Thanks!
for the rear hook, no holes were needed. frame rail in the back has holes for both hook or hitch setup. just clean rail, line up holes, and tighten bolts. the installation for the front hooks...well that's a different story.
...for ebay, just search for "jeep hook". there's plenty out there for around the same cost of what i paid. you just gotta know when to bid. i think i saw mopar listing the rear hook for 70-something so anything under that (w/ shipping) is what you're looking for.
mod 5: TURN OFF FASTEN SEAT BELT CHIME - i wear my seat belt for the most part, for i've been in one too many accidents in my lifetime. BUT to have that chime just continually go off, even pulling forward or backward in my longer than normal drive way is just freaking annoying. so:
Here are the steps to deactivate the chime (picked this up from another forum, should be in the owner's manual, too):
1. turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and buckle your seat belt while sitting in the drivers seat.
2. turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY/RUN position (engine does not need to be running), and wait for the seat belt warning light to turn off.
3. unbuckle and then re-buckle your seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending with theseat belt buckled. then start the jeep. (i don't know if starting is necessary, but i did it)
4. turn the ignition key to the OFF position. A single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully completed the programming.
next time you start the jeep, you'll hear the initial fasten seat belt chimes, but the continuous chiming reminder will be turned off. the light in the dash will remain on, though.
