My 09 got that tray, and the netting in front of the shifter. You 07-08 guys got screwed.


The 2011's have the tray above the radio.

Not a good idea with the JK. Visor doesn't go back together after taking them apart. The stickers do peel easily enough with patience.

You guys get the map pockets in the back of the seats too?! Dammit!! Well at least it doesn't look like an 2011. While I love the interior, I hate that it's the interior of a Wrangler...the '08 was posh enough...hahaha

Volume control for the stereo is now on the steering wheel, easy to gradually increase the volume without the wife noticing...no more of the arguments like we had in my TJ's

Anyone got any ideas? I've already done the following:
  • Floor mats front and rear.
  • Door sill guards front and rear.
  • Drilled side view mirrors.
  • Bedlined door hinges.
  • Bedlined hood hinges.
  • Replace factory subwoofer with Basslink.
  • Tinted windows front and back.
  • Mounted small shovel to tail gate.
  • Mounted fire extinguisher to driver's side seat.
  • Grab handles front and back.
  • Painted AC bezels, tweeters and soundbar speaker rings.
  • Roll bar mounted mag lite.
  • Relocated license plate & lamp.
  • Mounted PA speaker in engine bay for CB.
  • Spraypainted muffler with flat black hi temp paint.
  • Bedlined and installed Mr Grille front grill inserts.
  • Installed full size Uniden CB on top dash.

I've also recently thoroughly cleaned and detailed the exterior and interior from my last wheeling trip.
Do you have any pictures of the some of your mods....
I was thinking of doing some of these also.
bedlining the front grill, not sure but I think it would look good

I use this in my suburban. When the wife is distracted with the kids I turn down the radio, change the station from hers to mine and then turn it back up. She never figures it out.

You just need to unbolt them and swap them, not pull the visor off (like I did as well). Cause you definitely can't get em back on...

Takes 30 minutes and $10, but you may need an impact wrench to loosen the bolts and most socket sets don't have an 18mm socket, so I had to buy that too.
I did this and it makes a big difference in seat comfort. Highly recommend
