What year jeep do you have and what tranny.?

It is a 2011 with the 6 speed. It currently has the 3.21s. They are a dog on the highway but passable around town.

Ahh. You might want to go with 4.88s then. Those gears will allow you to run 35s in the future. But if you are planning to go 37s you will want 5.13

Yes it is Mrsmiley, it was a simple install. The only problem is with the security enclosure there's not as much room..

How will it perform with the 33s with the 4.88s? I don't really plan on going to 35s. If I do it will be years down the road. I've read many different things about 4.10s, 4.56 and 4.88.. I'm pretty well confused at this point. The chart shows that 4.56 would be at the beginning of the "performance" column. I wish I could test drive one with the same tires and different gears just to feel the difference. Also, I ordered a set of iggee seat covers for the front. Cant wait to get them. And I'm considering taking the carpet out, although I don't have the time or money to rhinoline right now.

Do you have any issues with the trunk cover? What are some pros and cons of it. I was thinking of getting it for my JKU.

Looks like a great start! Good choice on the security enclosure...it is one of my favorite mods - doors off, top off, no problem. Throw your junk in the back and hit the luck button

I think they make a bigger one for the unlimited.. So far the only con I can see is possibly having less space to fold the soft top down. I will be finding out this weekend. Supposed to be fantastic weather.

Does your soft top stick up more when folded down with the enclosure?
